These inside-out pizzas are perfect for school lunches, picnics or trips to the seaside, and if you make them really tiny and fill them with exotic flavours you could use them as an entrée for a grown-up party too. You can also experiment with different stuffings – we love blue cheese, rocket and lemon zest.

Method

To Make Dough

To Make Filling

To Make Calzone

1

Make dough first so it has time to rise.

2

If you have a breadmaker this is even easier.

3

By hand, simply mix yeast, sugar and water.

4

Set aside for around 10–15 minutes for yeast to start working.

5

The liquid should be frothy.

6

Add flour, salt, a few hearty grinds of pepper and herbs if using.

7

Mix well and add more warm water to flour, stirring with your fingers (or a knife) until dough mixture forms a large ball.

8

Knead dough gently until it has a lovely sheen and is elastic.

9

Drizzle a little oil over the dough and throughout the bowl to stop it sticking.

10

Cover with a tea towel or cling film and set aside in a warm place to rise for at least 30 minutes.
