Spicy Vegetable Calzone

Calzone is a popular Italian stuffed folded pizza. It was on my “Cooking wish-list” for so long. Finally I tried it yesterday and came out really well. It is made out of pizza dough, filled with tomato and vegetable filling, folded into semi-circles and bake it. You can deep fry them too, I guess that will taste yummy too. For this recipe I have baked it. 

For variation, you can try different filling as well, like corn and cheese or any vegetables of your choice. 

It is an Italian recipe but as always I like to give my own Indian twist to it. So for me it is a fusion recipe (Indian-Italian). I have modified the recipe which I have seen on TV with my own little twists.

3. For making the filling. Heat oil in a kadhai.
