Meatless Monday: Calzone pizza with tomato pesto and red pepper


A calzone is an Italian folded pizza. This one is made with a filling of homemade pesto, tomatinos and red pepper but you could use any vegetables you like.

For the pesto
Serves 2-3
75g pine nuts or flaked almonds
Handful Greek basil (approx. 15g)
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp lemon
90ml olive oil
2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
2 tbsp tomato puree

For the pizza dough
175g flour (I used half spelt and half rye) + extra for rolling
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
90ml organic unsweetened soya milk

Filling
Tomatinos, halved
Red pepper slices
Place all the ingredients for the pesto in a blender and blend.

To make the dough, place the flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix. Add the lemon juice and soy milk and mix to form a dough. Knead for 1 minute then leave to rest for 20-30 minutes. 

Divide the dough into 2 or 3 and roll out in a circular shape around 1/8 inch thick. Spread the pesto over the dough leaving a gap around the edges. Add the tomatino halves and pepper slices and fold.  



Seal the edges using a fork and place in an oven at 180 degrees for 20-30 minutes. 

Serve with a salad.


Enjoy
