Whole Wheat Broccoli Calzones

Makes 4-6 calzones


1 recipe Ger-Nis Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
2 cups broccoli florets
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup ham, cooked and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon whole-wheat flour
¼ cup milk
1 cup milk cheddar cheese, grated
1 teaspoon salt
Black pepper


Preheat oven 425°F.

Roll the pizza dough out into 4-6 five inch circles. Place on a large baking sheet or two of them. In a pot of boiling water blanch the broccoli florets for a few minutes until just al dente and beginning to soften. Remove and set aside. In a medium sauté pan add butter and oil and bring to a medium high heat. Sauté ham and onions for a few minutes until onions and ham begin to brown, about 4-5 minutes. Add broccoli florets and mix well. Add the flour and sauté a few minute longer until all flour is absorbed around the ham and broccoli. Add the cheese and the milk and reduce heat to low, stirring constantly until all the cheese has melted and the cheese is smooth. Remove from heat season with salt and pepper.

Place a dollop of the broccoli close to the center of each of the whole wheat dough circles, off to one side but still centered. Fold over the dough so that the sides are even and touching and a half circle is formed. Starting with one side top or bottom roll up or down the pizza dough sides curling up and twisting until top or bottom is reached. Place in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
