Fried Stuffed Calzone

Ingredients

INGREDIENTS FOR DOUGH

1 lb.1 oz. Caputo Flour

10 oz Water

10 gr Yeast

20 gr Salt

INGREDIENTS FOR STUFFING

8 oz. Sheep Ricotta

8 oz Buffalo Mozzarella, cut in small cubes

Salt, to taste

Pepper, to taste

Extra Virgin Olive Oil for frying

Directions

Preparation for Dough: Place cold water in mixing bowl and add salt. Dissolve salt completely. Add one cup of flour and dissolve. Add yeast and continue to mix for a few seconds, slowing adding remaining flour. Mix at slow speed for 20 minutes. Remove dough and place on counter; cover with damp cloth. Set aside for approximately 2 hours, or until dough has risen. After dough has risen cut into small 2 ounce balls. Cover with damp cloth and set aside for 2-3 hours, or until dough has risen (about double the size).

Preparation for Calzone: After dough has risen it is ready for use. Heat extra virgin olive oil (enough to cover calzone) in a large pot on medium-high heat. While oil heats, flatten ball of dough, using your fingers, until about 4-inches round. Place 3-4 cubes of Mozzarella, 2 Tbsp Ricotta, a pinch of salt and pepper, to taste, on dough. Close in a half-moon shape, using your fingers to pinch down the edges of the dough. Place calzone in pot of hot oil and fry until golden brown.

Remove and eat warm.
