The Perfect Calzones

Tonight's dinner started with the basic pizza dough recipe from Jim Lahey's My Bread Book. I made the dough last week and divided it in 2 pieces and froze them.

I thawed one of the portions and had enough dough for 2 calzones. For Chris, I sauteed onions and fried some bacon. I filled mine with sauteed veggies - broccoli, carrots, red pepper, zucchini and some tofu. Also filled both with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses.

The fillings were good but the bread was perfect. We both devoured the calzones. I used a jarred marinara sauce that I picked up at Whole Foods. San Marzano Sauce. The link shows the price at $10 a jar... I did not pay that much. But it was the best jarred sauce I have tasted.
