Ingredients

  • 3 1/2  Cups  high-gluten flour
  • 1/4  Ounce  fresh yeast
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  sugar
  • 1 1/2  Cup  warm water
  • 1  Teaspoon  sea salt
  • 2  Teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2  Teaspoons  Nutella
  • 2  Teaspoons  ricotta cheese

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the water, and let sit for 10 minutes.

Stir the salt and oil into the yeast solution. Mix in 2 ½ cups of the flour and knead together.

Turn the dough out onto a clean, well floured surface, and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Place the dough into a well oiled bowl and cover with a cloth. Let the dough rise until double; this should take about 1 hour. Punch down the dough, and form a tight ball. Allow the dough to relax for a minute before rolling out.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Stretch out the dough. Place the filling 1/3 leaving the other 2/3 of pizza dough to form the cover.

Press the dough tightly closed and cut off any excess dough. Place in the oven as soon as ready.

Bake calzone in  the preheated oven, until the is golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.

Finish with some powdered sugar or cocoa powder, whichever you prefer.

Nutella Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Nutella Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
