CALZONE WITH ROMESCO, ARTICHOKES AND OLIVES

One of our local bakeries, Le Petit Outré, makes a great pizza dough that is available in many local markets. It is made with wheat flour, malted barley flour, semolina flour, sea salt, yeast and water. It is better than any pizza dough that I have made. And it is so easy to pick up a package at the market and make a calzone for dinner.  Look for some freshly-made pizza dough in your area. There are so many combinations of ingredients to choose from. This particular evening I had some Romesco, artichoke hearts and olives as well as some savory tofu cream cheese. It couldn’t get any easier. Add a green salad and you have a quick, nutritious meal.

ROMESCO – PEPPER AND TOMATO SAUCE

This flavorful combination of red peppers and Roma tomatoes with olives, almond butter, garlic and smoked paprika makes a sauce that  can be used in several ways. It can be put over pasta or vegetables. It can be added to a soup or stew when it is served. It can also be used as a pizza topping with some olives. It is also good for dipping cut-up vegetables.  We use olives and almond butter instead of the traditional  olive oil.
