Baked Panzarotti

Yummy!  One of my favourite things to make for my family is baked panzarotti.  They are like pizzas, but all closed up and full of yumminess!  They are so easy to make too!

What you will need:


Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced (I used a scallion today because that's what I had in the house)
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 bottle of tomato puree (usually, I use our homemade sauce, but it takes longer to cook, so I cheated with the store-bought puree today) :)
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp basil
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup wine (red or white will do)
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
Dough:

  • Store-bought baby!  I'm not gonna lie...making pizza dough is hard work, so I cheat here.  I am making 5 panzarotti, so I bought two pizza dough balls...explained below
  • 1 egg, beaten, for brushing on top
Filling:

  • Whatever your heart desires!  In my case, I am using three cheese mix, mushrooms, bacon (which I pre-cooked in the microwave) and cacciatore salami.  Anything goes here peeps.
Preparation:

Heat oil in large frying pan.  Add onion, garlic and chili flakes.  Saute until tender. 




Add puree and swill out the bottle with water to add to the sauce...about half a bottle. 




Add oregano, basil, salt, pepper, sugar and wine.  Stir well.  Bring to a slow boil and then reduce heat and simmer for half an hour.



Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Break each of the pizza dough into pieces.  In my case, I broke the first ball in half (one for Hubster and one for Boy Oneder).  I broke the second ball into three for Middleman, Threepeat and I...simply because we can't eat the big ones like the big boys.  Roll each piece out into a circle.   Don't worry if it's not a perfect circle. :)



Add about 1/4 cup of sauce for each panzarotto.  You want to keep some sauce aside for dipping. 



Add fillings, leaving an inch border all the way around your circle. 


Fold dough over into half and press edges with thumbs to seal.  Brush with beaten egg.  Place on a greased baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown. 


Serve with a small bowl of sauce for each person to dip and a nice green salad.
