Pizza or Calzone Dough

Submitted by Amy

Servings: 1 large pizza crust or 8-10 calzones

3 C all-purpose or bread flour
1 package yeast (or 2 T)
2 tsp salt
¼ C sugar
1 T Italian seasoning
1 T chopped dried garlic or garlic powder
8 oz warm milk
4 oz warm water
additional flour

Preheat to 400 degrees F. Combine dry ingredients. Add warm milk and water to dry ingredients, and stir until combined. Set aside for 30-40 minutes to rise. Turn out dough, and knead, sprinkling with a little flour as you go, until the mixture is not sticky. Let the dough rest for 5-10 minutes.

For pizza crust: Roll out into a pizza crust and top with your favorite sauce and toppings.
For calzone: Portion out to 8-10 dough balls. Roll each ball out to about ¼-inch thick circle. Add ingredients* on one half of the circle. Brush entire edge with water. Fold unfilled side over ingredients and seal the edge tightly. Prick the top with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-30 minutes. Serve with pizza sauce on the side.

*Sample ingredients: zucchini, squash, peppers, onion, cheese, sausage, pepperoni, olives
