Canoe Calzone

Canoe Calzone

Open Faced Calzone

A Canoe Calzone.  Yup, that’s what I’m calling it.  And isn’t the name so fitting.  Sure, maybe this really exists somewhere else and maybe it’s even got another name, but for now, this is how I’ll refer to it.  The truth is, I didn’t come up with it either.  When I sat down and ordered a Calzone off a Menu at a Restaurant here recently, this is how it came, more or less.  And I felt like it was a good idea, minus the Marinara Sauce they served because it really sucked.  But if you want to serve yours with Marinara or Pizza Sauce, more power to ya.  I’m sure your recipe will taste just fine.  But, if you need a Pizza Sauce recipe, I’ve got one for you.  Just CLICK HERE!  Also, if you are needing a Pizza Dough recipe CLICK HERE as well for the original post, because you are going to need one if you’re going to make this Canoe Calzone Recipe.  You can also make one giant calzone by following this recipe.

You really won’t need any other ingredients list to make these Calzones, because you can put anything you want in them.  So I’ll just include the tutorial on how to fold them below.  And I might as well double stack the videos for you so you can see how to make the dough.  It’s an old video, but it’s accurate.  Let me know how you like these Canoe Calzones in the Comments.

Baked Rollero Sandwich (Calzones Recipe)

Resembles a Calzones Recipe

The Baked Rollero Sandwich is something I created out of my favorite pizza dough recipe. All of the ingredients of your favorite sandwich can be laid out over the top of this rolled out pizza dough, then rolled up and baked to perfection much like a Calzones Recipe in just 8 to 10 minutes!


The Rollero Sandwich isn’t a Calzones Recipe

Let’s be absolutely clear about this, the Rollero isn’t a Calzones Recipe but is as unique as one as well as it’s competitor the Stromboli. To be honest it’s the closest thing I could think of relating to it in order for anyone to be able to find this recipe and know of it’s existance at all.  If you’ve never heard of a Rollero Sandwich you don’t know to go looking for a recipe, but since I make it from fresh pizza dough, I’m not exactly lying about the fact that it’s like a Calzones Recipe now am I.  The great thing is this can come from any of your favorite pizza dough recipes, but if you don’t have one or you would like to try mine the ingredients and the directions are listed below.

Combine the following and let it stand 10 min. to activate. You’ll know it’s activated if it doubles in size.

1 tsp. dry yeast
1 tsp. granulated sugar
1/4 cup hot water 110 degrees f

Separate bowl Combine in the following order

1 cup hot water 110 degree (hot water out of your tap is fine)
3 cups BREAD flour (this is key, use bread flower)
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Italian Seasoning (Thyme, Rosemary, Marjoram etc.)
1/2 tsp garlic powder

To make a New York style pizza dough, add the activated yeast and mix all ingredients together in a mixer or knead it by hand. It’s designed to be a little sticky, so adding a few tbls. of flour here and there to get it to a desired pizza dough consistency is normal if you need to. Roll into a ball and thinly coat 2 tbls of olive on the outside to prevent dryness and cracking(Calzones Recipe do this). Now just let it rise for the next hour or so, or even refrigerate if you’re wanting it for later. Just make sure it get’s to room temperature and practically doubles in size before you roll it out to make a pie, or in this case my Rollero Sandwich. Separate the dough into four equal portions and roll it out thin; maybe an 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch TOPS, because it will double if not triple in size when it bakes.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees! Yes 450, that is NOT a typo. A wooden slate is best for baking but a pan works just fine. 8 to 10 minutes is all it’s gonna take for you to enjoy my Baked Rollero Sandwich (Calzones Recipe) after you follow all of the video instructions!
