Ingredients

For the dough

  • 3 1/2 Cups flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 Cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 Ounce fresh yeast

For the filling

  • 2 Tablespoons Nutella
  • 2 Tablespoons ricotta cheese

Directions

For the dough

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 1/2 cups of the flour. Turn 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 it doubles in size; 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 F. Stretch out the dough. 

For the filling

In a mixing bowl, whisk together Nutella and ricotta cheese. 

Place the filling on 1/3 of the dough; leaving the other 2/3 to form the cover. Press the dough tightly closed and cut off any excess. Place in oven as soon as ready.

Bake calzone in preheated oven, until the crust is golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Finish with some powdered sugar or cocoa powder, as desired.
