How to:
 Shape Panzarotti or Calzone
It's fun to make smaller size foods!
They are easy for handling, can be frozen and stored or transported to any function you are running too.
When I have time on the weekend I mix up a batch and the kids have lunch ready.
When they were smaller I had snacks for after soccer, dance or hockey.
These "fast foods" really help out parents who are looking for  easy foods but don't want to compromise the health factor.
1 raw uncooked pizza dough
corn flour for sprinkling
any fixin's you have:
mozzarella cheese,
salami, sausage, pepperoni
mushroom, peppers,
Be adventurous
Cut the dough into portion sizes
Remember the dough will be stretched or rolled to a larger size.
Using your hands, stretch the dough to the desired size for each person
Cut, chop or grate the desired fillings
 Place filling in the center of the dough
Fold the dough over to cover filling
Twist edges over to create a decorative seal.
Sprinkle a baking sheet with corn meal to prevent the dough from sticking to the pan.
Alternatives: grease and flour a baking sheet
or place on parchment paper or silpat
You can brush the tops with: an egg wash or oil.
Pierce the top with a fork to allow steam to escape.
Bake in a preheated 350F-375 oven bake until golden on top and bottom.
Alternatives: you can fry them in 2" of preheated 365F canola/vegetable oil until golden on both sides.
Of course this version is higher in fat calories
If you are counting
"just sayin"
Enjoy with love!
