CALZONE DOUGH:
  • Place water in a large bowl.
  • Sprinkle yeast on top and whisk in the honey until everything is dissolved.
  • Use a whisk to stir in the salt and flour.
  • When too thick to mix with the whisk, mix with floured hands.
  • Knead on a floured surface for 5 minutes.
  • Shape into a smooth ball and place back in the bowl.
  • Brush with a little olive oil and cover the bowl with a towel.
  • Set the bowl in a warm place for 1-2 hours so the dough can rise.
  • The dough should double in size.
  • You can make the filling for these while the dough rises.
  • The dough may be made in advance and refrigerated or frozen until ready to use.
  • Allow it to come to room temperature before using and knead a few times to warm it up.
  • Punch down the risen dough.
  • Divide it into 6 equal portions.
  • Roll out the dough one at a time on a floured surface into a 6-8 inch circle.
FILLING:
  • Preheat oven to 450° F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray
  • Spoon a couple teaspoonfuls of marinara sauce on half of the circle of dough, leaving 1/2 inch rim around the edge of the dough.
  • Place four pepperoni slices on top of the marinara. Can use more if you like.
  • Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  • Moisten the outside rim of the dough with water using your finger or a small pastry brush.
  • Fold the dough over the top of the filling and crimp the edges. This will make a half moon shape.
  • Go around the edges with the tines of a fork to seal.
  • Prick the top of the calzone with a fork to let the steam escape while baking.
  • Arrange assembled calzones on the baking sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  • Brush the tops with butter or oil during the last five minutes of baking.
  • Serve warm.
