Instructions:

 

 

For the Calzones:

 

  • In your stand mixer put all the ingredients and mix in slow speed for 5 minutes.
  • Increase speed to medium and mix for another 10 minutes.
  • Oil a bowl and place the dough in there and let it rest for one hour.
  • Put the dough in the fridge for at least three hours or overnight.

 

For the Feta Spread:

  •  
  • Mix everything in a bowl except the tomato.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C / 400°F.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge and divide it into five or six balls depending how big you want your calzones.
  • On your floured bench, with a rolling pin open each ball in a big circle.
  • Add 3 spoonfuls of the spread and top it with two slices of tomato on one of the circle’s hemisphere that is closer to you.
  • Cover it with the other hemisphere and seal the edges.
  • Transfer to a baking pan covered with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 10 minutes in 200°C and then reduce temperature to 175°C / 350°F and bake for another 20 minutes approximately.
  • If you see the top getting darker cover with an aluminum foil until they are done.
  • Remove, let it stay for 5 minutes and serve.

 

Note: I baked them in two batches. In the first I did as I tell here but in the second I left the oven burning at 175°C / 350°F during the entire baking time.
