What is Used to Make Gluten-Free Calzone Dough?
When making a gluten-free calzone, you'll need to use the right type of flour. The best flours for this recipe are rice flour, chickpea flour and ground almonds. These flours are all gluten-free and help to create a light and fluffy texture that is similar to traditional pizza dough. Once you have your desired combination of gluten-free flours, simply mix them together with salt, baking powder and warm water until a dough forms. Then roll it out into a circle before filling with your favorite ingredients.
For an even lighter texture, you can also add cornstarch to the dough mixture. This helps to give the calzone an airy texture while still providing enough structure to keep it from falling apart when you bite into it.
A Step-by-Step Guide to Making a Gluten-Free Calzone
Making a gluten-free calzone is easy and fun! Here's a step-by-step guide to creating the perfect calzone.
1. Start by making the dough. In a large bowl, mix together your favorite gluten-free flours and other ingredients like olive oil and salt. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes until it forms into a ball.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
2. Once the dough has rested, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Divide the dough into two equal parts and roll each one out on a lightly floured surface until they are both about ¼ inch (0.6 cm) thick.
3. Place one circle of dough onto your baking sheet or pizza stone and fill it with your desired ingredients such as cheese, cooked meats, vegetables, herbs, etc. Make sure not to overfill the calzone or it may not close properly during baking!
4. Place the second circle of dough on top of the first one and press down around the edges to seal them together completely. Cut several small vents in the top of the calzone so that steam can escape while cooking in the oven. Brush some olive oil over the top of the calzone before baking to give it a golden brown color once it’s finished cooking.
5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown on
