Ingredients

For the dough:

For the filling:

  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 2-3 cups fresh spinach
  • Homemade Nooch Cheese (or sub with your favorite vegan cheese shreds)
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato purée (if you don’t want tomato sauce to dip the Calzones in afterwards, half the amount of tomato purée!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • a few twigs fresh oregano
  • olive oil for brushing the top

Instructions

  • For the dough put all ingredients in a kitchen machine or mix by hand and let it rise until it doubles in size, but keep it covered under a clean kitchen towel otherwise the dough will dry out.
  • Prepare the Nooch Cheese Sauce.
  • Preheat the oven as hot at 480°F/250°C.
  • Cut the dough in 8 equal pieces and roll them out on a floured surface.
  • Clean the mushrooms and spinach, cut the mushrooms in thin slices and put the mushrooms in a hot pan (You want the mushrooms to lose most of their water now, they shouldn’t water up the calzone later). Add the spinach to let it cook down.
  • For the tomato sauce mix the tomato purée with the salt, ground pepper, fresh oregano, onion powder and liquid smoke. (Adjust the sauce to your taste)
  • Spread the tomato sauce over half of the calzone pizzas, add the mushroom-spinach mixture and add the vegan cheese sauce.
  • Fold the calzone and press it down on the edges. Fold the edges again and a third time to make it pretty! Repeat until all calzones are fold.
  • Brush the calzones with a bit of olive oil and bake them in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!
