Crazy Calizone..Oh the Yum!

   Finding time together with all the teens is quite a challenge; college and work schedules keep things in constant flow. Today offered us a rare treat..all hands were on deck..this called for a special dinner and calizones came to mind.

   Simply Calizones

1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 3/4 cup flour
2 cup wheat flour
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons yeast

seasoned tomato sauce
mozzarella cheese

*work the first seven ingredients into a smooth dough
*let rest while prepping the next step
*shred cheese or chop it into cubes
*stir in enough tomato sauce to make a moist mixture
*divide dough into fourths
*work each dough into a fairly thin, somewhat round shape
*place dough on a lightly greased baking sheet
*spread 1/4 of cheese mixture over half the dough
*fold and crimp the edges well
*using a sharp knife, cut one or two vent slashes
brush with olive oil adding additional seasonings if desired
**bake 425 degrees 15 minutes.
   Pared with a salad and lots of crazy teen conversation this meal will definitely grace our table again soon.

They look great. It is also very hard for our whole family to get together. So when we do ,it's a special time for everyone.
