(originally made 3/2013)
Tim and I are both big fans of calzones, stromboli, pepperoni pizza. I found this recipe here on TOH and decided to give it a try today. Instead of the frozen bread dough, I made the Soft Garlic Breadstick
dough. I'm low on all things flour, so I ended up using 1 1/2c all
purpose and 1 1/2c white whole wheat. It turned out ok, a little
harder to work with, and I'll go back to the all bread flour next time
Tim won't eat chunks of onion so when I browned the ground
beef I added 2T of minced dried onion. I used 90% lean beef, and since I
had bought a package of the thick sliced pepperoni, I quartered the
pieces. I went all mozzarella for the cheese.
Very happy with the final result! I stashed the second one in the
freezer unbaked to have another time. Very easy to customize this with
veggies or whatever you like.
