Whole Wheat Calzone

Making calzones at home is such a good thing... It gives you the flexibility to put what you want into your food. You pick your cheeses, meats, toppings, etc... Not that you can't do that at your local pizza joint, but you get to pick the brands you want to use as well. To me a calzone is just a folded over pizza. You start by making a normal pizza dough - in this one I wanted to add some whole wheat flour and it made for a nice change. I wouldn't want to make it this way all the time but it was good... Load in your fillings then make sure you get a nice crimping of the dough - you just don't want it to open and it's really the "crust" of the dish. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes or so...

1 Packet active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (no hotter than 110 degrees)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp sugar (or a Tbsp of honey)
1.5 Cups flour
1 Cup whole wheat flour
1/4 Cup pizza sauce
Ricotta cheese - as much as you like and can fit in
Provolone cheese - 2-4 slices
Mozzarella cheese - 2-4 slices
1/4 Lb cooked sausage
1/2 Small onion or scallions sliced thin
Banana peppers to you liking
Black olives to your liking

Bon Appetit...
