I found what I thought was a great calzone recipe for my bread maker.
But…nope. I followed the directions PERFECTLY (doubled checked multiple times) and I ended up with this….
BLAH! It was so soupy! YUCK!
However, it was already 5pm, and I had been to the grocery store earlier in the day. I refused to go again out of sheer exhaustion. So I did a quick search on the web and found a few recipes for pizza dough with no yeast. I just didn’t have time to let the bread rise. So I ended up mixing some flour, baking powder, oil, water, salt, and italian seasoning.
I then cooked some ground pork that I picked up at The Bradford Store. It was made at the Mclaughlin Farm in nearby Mooresville, NC. My 9th grade English teacher is actually part of this family. I didn’t remember that until my mom pointed it out while shopping last weekend. I remember her class being VERY hard but Mom said she saw her a few weeks ago, and Mrs. Mclaughlin said she remembered me as a good student. I’m glad she saw potential even through all of those horrible book essays! 😉
The dough was poured into a pan and topped with the browned meat (did you notice that it is spicy hot?!) and some olives I had in the fridge.
I cooked that for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. I then pulled it out and topped it with some pizza sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese.
I then baked it again for another 10 minutes until the cheese melted.
The pieces cut fairly well, but I was tired and didn’t feel like making more dirty dishes, so we decided to grab two forks and dig in! The flavor was great…the consistency only so-so. Nathan actually really enjoyed it and said he would eat it again anytime! Well….out of a blop, come more…blop. But at least it wasn’t a flop 🙂
