Fancy something a bit naughty out of Roccbox this festive season?! Of course you do!! These Christmas Calzones have been a massive hit in the office and are great to personalise with someone’s favourite choccys!

On top of that, they’re super quick and easy to make too. (Which gives you a bit more time to look into joining that gym in January…)

Step 1;

Beat together the nutella and cream in a bowl to combine and set to one side.

Step 2;

Open a neapolitan dough ball into a circle (you can use freshly made dough here but this works just as well with leftover or over proven dough!) slightly smaller than you would for a pizza as you don’t want it too thin!

Step 3;

Spoon over a couple of generous dollops of the nutella ganache and top with a handful of chocolates in the centre making sure to leave a border of around 4cm around the outside.

Step 4;

Fold the dough over towards you and use the butt end of a pizza wheel to stick the dough together all the way round- it should look like a classic calzone or Cornish pasty at this point!

Step 5;

Cut the excess dough away from the crimped edge so you’re left with a beautiful looking sealed parcel and pierce the top 2 or 3 times with a skewer to allow the steam to escape.

Step 6;

Turn a preheated, hot Roccbox flame down to its lowest setting before popping the calzone onto a floured peel and launching into the front third of the oven.

Step 7;

Bake for 2 1/2 – 3 minutes rotating and turning as required.

Step 8;

As the calzone comes out, you can dust over a little icing sugar for that extra festive feel and serve with whipped cream or ice cream (since it’s Christmas!!)
