Bacon Mushroom and Cheese Calzone
Method

For the dough:

  • Preheat the oven to 200* C (392* F) Fan.
  • Place an oven tray upside down in the oven and let it get very hot while preparing the dough.
  • Combine the yeast with the lukewarm water. Add the sugar and stir until it is diluted. Set it aside for 10 minutes, until the yeast is activated.
  • In another bowl, combine the semolina and salt. Add the yeast and olive oil and mix with a spoon.
  • When the mixture becomes too thick to mix with the spoon, transfer to a working surface and knead it with your hands.
  • Brush a bowl with some olive oil. Place the dough inside the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for up to 2 hours at room temperature, until it doubles in size. The time the dough will need also depends on the season.
  • When ready, divide the dough into 4 equal parts and sprinkle with semolina.

For the filling:

  • Place a pan over high heat and let it get very hot. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the mushrooms. Sauté until they have lost all of their liquid.
  • You want them to dry out completely and turn golden.
  • Add the garlic, salt and pepper. Sauté for another minute.
  • Remove from pan and let the mixture cool until needed.
  • Sauté the bacon in another pan, until crispy.
  • Remove from heat. Let the bacon drain on some paper towels and cut into pieces.
  • Add to the mushroom mixture and mix.
  • Use a rolling pin and extra semolina to roll out the 4 pieces of dough into round sheets, 25 cm in diameter.
  • Divide the mixture between them, spreading it in the center of the circles of dough.
  • Add the grated cheese, aromatics and spices over the mushroom mixture, dividing it equally.
  • Brush some water along the edges of the dough.
  • Fold each circle of dough in half and fold edges over a little to keep the filling from escaping.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden.
