Whole wheat dough


  • Readymade pizza dough as required
  • Refined flour (maida) to dust
  • Oil to grease + to brush
  • Tomato base sauce as required
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated 1 cup
  • Medium green capsicums, finely chopped 2
  • Medium onions, finely chopped 2
  • Red chilli flakes 2 tsps
  • Salt to tase
  • Parmesan cheese, smallshavings as required


  • Preheat oven to 200º C.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Dust the worktop with a little dry flour, flatten one portion of the dough with your fingers and stretch slightly into a round shape. Roll out into a thin roundel with a rolling pin applying a little pressure. Place it on a greased baking tray.
  • Spread tomato base sauce on one half of the pizza, leaving space from the edges.
  • Sprinkle ¼ cup mozzarella cheese, ½ the chopped green capsicum, ½ the chopped onion, ½ tsp chilli flakes, salt and some parmesan cheese shavings.
  • Brush a little water on the edges of the roundel and fold it, seal the edges, to make a half-moon.
  • Brush it lightly with oil. Pierce 2-3 holes on top to let air escape. Similarly make 3 more calzones.
  • Keep the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Cut each calzone diagonally into half and serve hot.
