Bacon and mushroom calzone


For the dough

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the salt, the water, the yeast, the olive oil, the flour, and beat with the hook attachment at high speed, for 8-10 minutes, until there is an elastic dough.
  • Transfer to a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow 1-2 hours for the dough to double in volume.

For the filling

  • Place a frying pan over high heat and add 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Cut the onion into large pieces and add them to the pan. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.
  • Cut the bacon into cubes and add them to the pan. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.
  • Cut the mushrooms into large pieces and add them to the pan. Add the oregano and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the basil, salt, pepper, the tomato, the sugar, and cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, until they release their moisture and the filling thickens.
  • Remove and set aside.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 230ο C (450ο F) set to fan and add a baking pan inside until it gets very hot.
  • Dust your working surface with flour and semolina, and cut the dough into 4 pieces. 
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out each piece into a 20 cm sheet.
  • Divide the mozzarella, the parmesan, the basil, and the filling among each dough sheet.
  • Fold the dough, wrap it, and press the seam with your hands or with a fork to seal the calzones well. Prick a few holes on their surface to let the steam escape during baking.
  • Transfer to the hot pan and bake them for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let them cool and serve.
