Recipe Steps

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli florets into small pieces. Thinly slice mushrooms. Stem, seed, and cut red bell pepper into ¼” dice. Peel and mince shallot. Stem and coarsely chop basil. In a large mixing bowl, combine basil, ricotta, liquid egg, mozzarella (reserve a pinch for topping calzones), ¾ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

  • 2

    Make the Filling

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over high heat. Add broccoli, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and shallot to hot pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to brown, 6-8 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and remove to towel-lined plate. Cool 5 minutes, then combine in mixing bowl with ricotta-basil mixture.

  • 3

    Make the Dough

    Measure out ½ cup of self-rising flour and reserve. This "bench flour" will be used to prevent dough from sticking in next step. Set aside 2 Tbsp. of yogurt. Place remaining flour and yogurt in a medium mixing bowl with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and ½ tsp. salt. Mix until a sticky dough ball forms.

  • 4

    Knead the Dough

    Dust a clean work surface with bench flour. Turn dough out of bowl onto floured surface and knead 5 minutes, folding dough over on itself and pressing down with the heel of your hand. Dough may be slightly sticky: this is okay. If it feels too wet, add flour. If too dry, add yogurt. Divide dough into two equal balls and, using a rolling pin, roll dough into two 10” circles, dusting with more bench flour as needed to prevent sticking. Transfer rolled dough circles to baking sheet.

  • 5

    Build and Bake the Calzones

    Add filling off-center of each dough circle and fold dough over form a half-moon. Press edges together to seal. Use your thumb and forefinger to pinch and crimp dough into a decorative edge. Brush tops with 2 tsp. olive oil and bake until crust is lightly browned, 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with reserved mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is bubbly and golden brown, 6-8 minutes.

    Plate the Dish

    Just before serving, place marinara sauce in a small pan over low heat to warm, 3-5 minutes. Place calzones on plates and halve to let cool. Transfer warm marinara sauce to a small bowl and serve on side. Calzones will be deliciously hot, so be careful when eating and handling!
