Ingredients

  • 1 tsp fennel seeds, bruised
  • 125ml garlic and herb pizza sauce from a jar
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 6 roasted artichoke halves, chopped, oil reserved (see tips)
  • 6 sun-blush tomatoes, chopped
  • 12 black olives, pitted and chopped
  • Pack 2 x 220g balls pizza dough (we like Northern Pizza Dough Co, from Sainsbury’s), defrosted
  • Plain flour for dusting
  • 100g fresh mozzarella, torn
  • Mixed bitter salad leaves

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Heat a heavy-based pan over
    a medium heat and toast the fennel seeds until fragrant. Add the pizza sauce and dried oregano and bring to a simmer. Take off the heat and stir in the artichokes, tomatoes and olives.
  2. Roll out both dough balls on a lightly floured surface to roughly 28cm circles. Divide the tomato mixture between each circle, leaving a 2cm border on one side and about 6cm on the other, then top with the mozzarella. Moisten the edges of the dough with water, then fold over to create a pasty/calzone shape. Press the edges to seal, then fold the edge back over itself and crimp to seal again. Brush the dough with some of the reserved oil.
  3. Bake on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper for about 15 minutes or until golden and puffed. Serve half a calzone per person with a bitter leaf salad.

  1. Add sliced salami or 1 tbsp ’nduja to the filling for a meaty, spicy boost. Find artichokes, tomatoes and olives at the deli counter.
