Recipe: Simon Toohey


  • 1Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  • 2Knead the dough together for 10 minutes. Place in a bowl and cover with a clean tea towel and allow to rest.
  • 3Roughly chop up the mushrooms. In a pan place the oat butter and the mushrooms with diced onion, garlic, thyme and oregano leaves. And cook until soft. Add the cheese and turn the heat off and let cool.
  • 4After the first rise of dough. Take out of the bowl and punch down. Cut into 2 portions. On a lightly floured surface, knead each portion to form a smooth ball. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes.
  • 5On a floured bench, roll the rested dough to as close to a circle as possible. If the dough is sticky, dust with a little more flour.
  • 6On the dough, spread the tomato paste over. Then, on one half of the dough, add the mushroom and cheese mixture, fold over and use a fork to press down around the edges, sealing the calzone.
  • 7Paint the outside with oil.
  • 8Bake for 20–25 minutes or until the pastry is golden.
