- Roll out pastry to thickness of 3mm and cut into four equal squares.
- Line baking tray with parchment, place one pastry square on tray.
- Spoon a quarter of the filling onto one half of the pastry
- Sprinkle over some cheese and ripped mozzarella
- Wet the edge of the pastry around the filling with the whisked egg and fold pastry over filling and seal the edge by pressing down and clipping together with your fingertips.
- Brush with eggwash and continue until all four calzones are done.
- Pierce each one with a knife to allow the steam to escape and bake in pre-heated oven for approx. 20 minutes or until top is golden; remove and serve!
- Serve with side salad or baked beans!
Try adding smoked sausage, leftover chicken or chorizo to the vegetables.
