Mushrooms and Smocked Tofu Calzoncini

We must admit that Italian pizza is in the list of the most delicious food.

Calzone, which can be his mate, is delicious too, but less considered even if it tastes just as good as pizza.

Calzone is easy to eat while standing up or walking.

Make pizzette (mini pizza) is very popular, but calzoncini (mini calzone) can have more vantage than make pizzette, because they can be perfect to bring out for a quick meal, snack, or picnic.

Since the filling is kept inside the crunchy crust, they do not get to melt each other in the storage box like can happen to pizzette, if not properly stored.

Calzoncini is tasty and can be stuffed with all kinds of ingredients we love.

Mushrooms and Smocked Tofu Calzoncini

First I start to combine in a large blow flour, nutritional yeast, salt and mix them adding the water and extra virgin olive oil and mix all by hand.

When the dough is smooth I let it rise, covered under a kitchen towel, until it doubles in size.

Then I preheat my oven to 200° C and next I cut the dough and make 12 mini doughs and roll them out on a floured surface.

Now I cut the mushrooms and smoked tofu into slices.

In the medium blow, I mix the firm tofu, extra virgin olive oil, salt, oregano, and basil since I get a soft cream.

I spread the tomato sauce over half of each dough, the tofu soft cream, and add mushroom and smoked tofu.

I fold the first dough and press it down on the edges and go on since folding them all and have 12 calzoncini.

I brush the calzoncini with a bit of tomato sauce and put some oregano with basil on top.

Finally, I carefully put all the calzoncini on a baking sheet with baking paper and I bake them in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

The aroma is inviting and intense and the taste is delicious.

Calzoncini if eaten hot is creamy, but is important to pay attention to don’t get burnt.

I like eating them also cold because they are amazing to bring a picnic.
