Pizza versus Calzone – part three

Ah, that lovely smell of pizza in the oven

Tomato sauce, ricotta, spinach calzone

I should really do this more often, it’s been a really satisfying process, from making the dough, to stretching it and topping it with tasty veg and cheese, not forgetting pizza for leftovers 🙂

Now, on to the calzones – as you can see, my first had a gap so I covered it up, and the filling of tomato sauce, ricotta and spinach didn’t ooze out. The second was easier to shape, no gaps, but the filling of spinach, ricotta and mozzarella did melt out of one side – that’s just the homemede touch 😉

Both really hit the spot – they were well seasoned, had a nice balance of dough and filling for my tastes, and reheated well for lunches the next day.

As much as I enjoyed the pizza, it tasted so much better fresh from the oven. Still, I’d never turn my nose up at pizza for breakfast, never!

Buon appetito
