Time for another Challenge from the HBin5 Bread Making Group.
This is the bread that I make more often than any other bread - weekly in fact. Every Friday night is PIZZA NIGHT. Pizza night started out about 15 years ago with our friends who would come over and we would make pizza on a Boboli. I cringe now that I write that because I can't imagine eating those crusts again after making my own crust. From that I moved up to using pre-made pizza dough from various locations. My favorite was from a local Artisan Bread Store where I paid $5 for two balls of pizza dough. It was yummy dough, but once I got ABin5 and then HBin5, I was hooked on making my own pizza crust. It not only was easier and cheaper but tasted great too.
So every Friday we make a cheese or pepperoni pizza and what I call "left-over" pizza. Left-over pizza is just as it sounds. I look in the fridge and see what's there and put it on top of a pizza. Our favorite combos lately are roasted grape tomatoes, spinach, garlic, onions, and chicken. I also make a fajita pizza if we have left-over fajitas. I have also been topping it lately with goat cheese which I really love.
I was reading the recipe about the aloo paratha and thought that was a great way to make a calzone. So I looked in the fridge and saw mushrooms, spinach and left over apple/chicken sausages. So I sautéed it all up,
put it in the dough as the aloo describes, sealed it up, and baked. I made two individual calzones. I had a bit of a problem with the first one sticking badly to the pizza peel so it came out a little lopsided. The second one I used more flour and cornmeal and it slid off just fine. I used a little pasta sauce for dipping and it was delicious. This is definitely going to be added to Pizza Night from now on.
This was the lopsided one as you can see. Still tasted good. Didn't get a picture of the one that came out nicely but my husband said it was great when he ate it.
Happy Baking and Eating!
