Broccoli & Three Cheese Calzone


  1. Mix all the dough ingredients together in a large bowl and then knead for 5 to 10 minutes on a lightly floured surface, until smooth and elastic (no need to activate instant yeast – available in most supermarkets).
  2. Put the dough in a lightly greased bowl, and turn to coat with grease. Let the dough rise, covered loosely with plastic food wrap, in a warm draught-free place for 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling by frying the onion until golden. Add the broccoli, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper and stir-fry for about a minute.
  4. Then add the water and cover, steaming the vegetables for about 3-4 minutes until the water is evaporated and the vegetables are tender.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the egg and the three cheeses.
  6. Preheat the oven to 230ºC (450ºF). Lightly oil baking tray, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons mealie meal (or use plain flour if unavailable)
  7. Divide pizza dough into 4 pieces.
  8. Roll each piece into a thin circle.
  9. Spoon about ¼ of the cheese mixture and a ¼ of the broccoli mixture onto one half of each round leaving a 3-cm border.
  10. Brush the border with water, fold the other half of the circle over the filling, and pinch the edges together to seal.
  11. Arrange Calzoni on baking sheet and bake in the lower third of the oven for 15 minutes.
