Calzone

Not sure if this would be in Ethnic or bread . I have a craving for home made Calzone, made my own dough with the KitchenAid stand mixer, waiting for the dough to rise. I plan to make smoked ham, mixed with Ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese and reggiano parmesan.

Sounds good. You could also try Italian cold cuts. Prosciutto, coppacola, genoa salami, mortadella and provelone cheese.

Or, roasted red peppers, cheese and calamata olives

I made one with artichokes and spinach once. Really good. Parmesan was in there I know, I cant remember what else. It was more like a white pizza, no tomato sauce.

Sounds like my favorite dish at BJ's (read the "specialty calzone"):

That reminds me...I haven't made Calzones in a long time. I usually just stuff them with whatever I have on hand. Leftover broccoli, chicken and cheese makes a good one.

Yum. Those are some of my fave fillings from one of my fave Italian restaurants. (They might use prosciutto instead of ham.) I also like to add mushrooms or spinach, & marinara on the side for dipping. You could also change it out & add crab or small shrimp to the cheese mixture. Lotsa ways to go.
