Calzone with 5 minute bread dough

If you have any sense you would have noticed that I go on about the 5 minute bread dough mix. I love it and always have some dough in the fridge. I have now got it to 5 cups white flour and the rest wholemeal as it gives it an extra bit of something and makes me feel at least a little self righteous. 
This time, to mix it up a bit, we made calzone with the dough and the whole thing was a family affair. Miss Muffin attempted the rolling of the dough and I was mortified that she was terrible. I don’t know what happened but she somehow has not learnt how to roll dough correctly, I will put myself in the bad mummy corner and try harder to teach her. I would like to add, she can make tea and stir fried rice.
As the dough was already in the fridge and  all I had to do was sprinkle it with a little flour and grab 3 balls out. I left them for about 15 minutes to relax a little and the the rolling began. I haven’t used the dough in this way and next time I will certainly make sure that the base is thicker. As you can see, we did have a bit of an exploding problem. Dinner still tasted good though.
I don’t think I can say much more than we filled one half, used basic pizza ingredients, folded, sealed edges and baked for around 20 minutes at 180.
I would like to tell you about my favourite feta type cheese. It is called table cheese and made in Egypt. It is much more like the creamy mild flavours we are used to from the UK. It cooks really well. I do struggle with the food miles but I get over it. If you want to find it have a look on the cheese islands in the supermarket. It looks like this-

Excuse me while I try out a new look for the photos. Any comments?

  1. I'm going to look out for that cheese! This five minute bread dough sounds like a wonderful fallback recipe. I'm sure Miss Muffin will learn the art of dough-rolling soon enough 🙂
