Vegan MoFo! I is for...

While I love pizza and calzones, I'm not a big fan of too much dough - if I want lots of bread I'll make a sandwich thanks very much! So when setting out to make calzone dough, I wasn't interested in making regular pizza dough, I needed something thinner and crispier. As usual when I'm recipe brainstorming, I headed for Veg Web and found this recipe from Love Joy Harvest which is more of a pastry than a bread dough, and looked really promising. Of course I made a few changes lol!

This is what you'll need...
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons ice cold water (or more of needed)
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
Throw everything except for the water in a food processor and mix well. Add the water one tablespoon at a time until the dough starts to come away from the sides of the bowl. Wrap dough in plastic wrap until you use it as it dries out very easily.

How many you make out of this is up to you - I usually make three big calzones, but you could easily get five or six smaller ones out of it. Just roll out the dough to about 3 mm thick, fill with whatever you have to hand (I usually do Daiya cheese and vegetables with pizza sauce) and cook at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes. Another easy recipe, that the whole family loves so that makes me a happy momma!



  1. Gorgeous calzone! You wrapped it just beautifully! I'm so glad, too, that your whole family likes these. That certainly makes dinnertime a happy time!

  2. Thank you! They certainly make for a very happy tummy I can tell you lol!
