Simple egg pizza pocket (Calzone)
Stuffed egg pizza pocket is a simple fit recipe perfect for dinner or lunch. If you need an inspiration for new egg recipes, come and try this one. I'm sure you'll like it.
The original pizza pocket, called Calzone, comes from Naples, Italy. It's basically a stuffed and baked pizza dough. You can fill it with basically any ingredient, but the most commonly used ingredients are those that go on a pizza. So I used my favorite combination in this recipe but can play around with the fillings according to your own taste and imagination. Spinach, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, chicken or other meat, tuna, vegetables, eggs, or ricotta, for example, also fit perfectly.
However, I changed the recipe for the pizza pocket a bit and I prepared a diet-friendly version without yeast. The main ingredients of the dough recipe are eggs and whole wheat spelled flour. So you can imagine that the dough doesn't taste the same as the classic Calzone, but I think I did well and this egg pizza pocket tastes great. But be prepared for the egg flavor! :)
This pizza pocket made of eggs has an amazingly crunchy crust and a surprise awaits you inside in the form of an irresistible combination of ingredients. From the recipe, you will get 1 large and filling portion. Half of this pizza pocket will probably be enough for most people for dinner.
