Cheese Calzone Recipe with Mushrooms

Double-cheese and mushroom calzones

  • serves 2
  • Easy

A twist on a pizza for two. Bread mixes make calzone easy and this version is packed full of Italian favourites; mushrooms, mozzarella, parmesan and chilli



  • ciabatta bread mix or pizza base mix 250g
  • field mushrooms 3 large, sliced
  • olive oil
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed
  • mozzarella 1 ball, sliced
  • parmesan 2 tbsp of grated
  • rosemary a few needles, chopped
  • chilli flakes (optional)


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Make the dough following pack instructions. Cook the mushrooms in a little olive oil until tender then add the garlic, season and cook for another 3 minutes, turning up the heat to evaporate any water.

  • Step 2

    Divide the dough in half and roll each piece out into a rough circle, about 25cm across. Divide the mushrooms and mozzarella between them heaping the mixture onto one half. Add the parmesan, rosemary and a pinch of chilli flakes (if using) then fold over the other half and crimp around the edges so they look like 2 large pasties. Dust with flour then lift onto a baking sheet. Cook for 15-20 minutes until they’re crisp and golden.
