Beef Calzone

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Packet Lion Pizza base kit

  • 125ml warm water

  • Flour for dusting

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 150g beef mince

  • 100g baby spinach, washed

  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 egg lightly whisked

  1. Preheat oven to 220˚C (200˚C fan forced).

  2. Combine the contents of the yeast sachet and warm water in a small bowl, mixing until fully dissolved.

  3. Empty the pizza base mix sachet into a mixing bowl, add the dissolved yeast and mix together to form a dough.

  4. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until a smooth ball forms, dividing dough into 4 and rolling each portion into a 15-20cm circle.

  5. Heat the oil in a pan, cook minced beef and spices until brown, and add spinach until wilted. Finally, add tomato & Basil sauce and sauté for 2 minutes.

  6. Dividing the contents of the mince mixture equally, spread over half of each calzone leaving a clear border around the edges.

  7. Fold the dough over to enclose the filling, pinching together the joined edges to seal. Transfer to a lined baking tray and brush the surface with a little of the beaten egg.

  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
