What ingredients do you need to make this Greek Calzone?

I have listed all the products for you here, so that you can see at a glance what you need for this Greek Calzone and possibly get it from the shop.

For the dough:

  • 250 grams of lukewarm water
  • 8 grams of yeast
  • Breach of granulated sugar
  • 100 grams of fine semolina
  • 100 grams of cornflower
  • 300 grams of flower
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

The filling:

  • 200 grams grated mixed cheese
  • 100 grams of feta
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • Pinch
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil

To serve:

  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Oregano

How do you prepare the dough?

Put the water, yeast and granulated sugar in a bowl and mix briefly. Add the semolina, cornflour, flour, salt and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

You can use a food processor to knead the dough for the Greek Calzone, but if you don't have one you can also do it by hand. The dough is ready when it looks compact. It should not stick to your hands but it should not be slippery either.

Now leave the dough to rise in a clean glass bowl for 1 to 2 hours. This depends on the temperature in your house. To make sure it doesn't stick to the bowl, put a little Extra virgin olive oil in the bottom of the bowl. Cover it with cling film and leave it alone until the rising is complete.

The filling for this Greek dish is prepared like this

Take the dough out of the bowl and set it aside. Now we are going to start with the filling for this Greek dish. Take the grated mixed cheese and feta and put them in a new bowl. Cut the two tomatoes in half and remove the seeds. Cut them into pieces and add them to the cheese bowl.

The pepper and oregano can now be added. Do NOT add extra salt, the cheeses are already salty enough. Mix well with a spoon.

Prepare the dish with a dash of extra virgin olive oil

Now preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces and sprinkle a little fine semolina on the kitchen worktop. Roll the pieces of dough flat (not too thin) with a rolling pin. If you notice that the dough sticks to the rolling pin, put some more semolina on the dough and continue rolling. Put 1/4 of the filling on the flat rolled dough and fold it.

Fold the sides so that there is a thick edge, and the filling cannot come out.  Place this on a baking tray and prepare the others as well.

Drizzle about 1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil over each Greek Calzone  and place the baking trays in the preheated oven. They need about 15 to a maximum of 20 minutes to get crispy and brown. The time depends on your oven.

Serve this Greek calzones with fresh herbs

Serve it beautifully by placing the Greek Calzone on an Olive wood serving board  and sprinkling it with fresh herbs such as thyme, rosemary and oregano.
