Sausage and olive calzone


You'll need

500 gm Italian sausage, casings removed 3 long red chillies 1 qty pizza dough 375 ml (1½ cups) tomato passata 50 gm pitted Kalamata olives 3 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced 150 gm fior di latte or buffalo mozzarella, thickly sliced To serve: finely grated parmesan

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat, add sausages and cook, stirring to break up, for 5 minutes or until just cooked through.
  • 02
  • Place chillies on an oven tray and roast at 180C for 8 minutes or until skin has blistered. Place chillies in a sealed plastic bag for 5 minutes, then remove skin and seeds.
  • 03
  • On a floured work surface roll out a quarter of the dough to a 25cm round. Spread ¼ cup passata over half the base and top with a quarter of the sausage, chilli, olives, garlic and mozzarella. Fold dough over, seal edges and spoon over 2 tbsp passata. Cook on a preheated pizza stone (see note) at 250C for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Scatter with grated parmesan and serve immediately.

Note Pizza stones, which ensure crisp-based pizza, are available from Italian delicatessens and food stores.
