• 1 and ¾ cups warm water
  • 2 and ¼ teaspoons instant yeast
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 and ½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 14 ounces pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1 cup pepperoni, diced
  • Olive oil
  1. Pour yeast into warm water and let stand for 5 minutes. Add oil to water. Stir together flour and salt in a stand mixer. Slowly incorporate yeast water into flour. Remove dough from mixer and knead for 5 minutes. Roll dough into a ball and place in a oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Divide dough into six evenly-sized balls.
  3. On a floured surface, roll dough into a circle, about 9 inches in diameter. Spread sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni (or any other toppings) onto the center of the dough.
  4. Fold dough in half and press edges to seal. Brush calzones with olive oil. Bake for 15 minutes.
