Father-Son Cooking: Fish Calzones

Owen’s favorite part was making the olive eyes. The filling was a puttanesca sauce with sardines mixed in.


Method: make pizza dough from 16oz of flour (scale your favorite pizza dough to that flour mass). I mix 16 oz flour with 1.25 cups water, 2 tsp salt, and 2 tsp yeast, and let the bread machine or food processor do the kneading. After the dough has risen, roll it into four 9″ (23cm) disks. Make vertical parallel slits along the top and bottom of each disk up to about 2 inches from the middle. Place filling along the un-slitted middle region of the disk. Criss cross strips over each other to make fish body. Use a fork to flute the tail into a fishy shape. Garnish with an olive slice for an eye. I think we baked these at around 400F for about 20 minutes.

Much of the fun of these was making them super fast while Beth was doing laundry upstairs. Owen then took great delight in making her guess what we had made.
