Since going gluten free, there are only two things I have really missed. One is Auntie Ann’s pretzels. I have fiddled a little bit with making gluten free soft pretzels, but I haven’t come up with anything great. The other is a calzone from Three Brothers Italian Restaurant. My favorite is their spinach calzone, but the meatball one is great also.
Then, a few weeks ago I saw a recipe for gluten-free calzones at Gluten Free Mom. They looked great, and I decided to give them a try. I also decided to participate in Book of Yum’s Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger event.
Gluten Free Mom has recipes, product reviews, and information on celiac disease and raising a celiac kid. You will enjoy visiting the blog if you haven’t already. I followed Jamie’s calzone recipe as is except that I used instant yeast. The calzones turned out really well, and it was so nice to eat them again. The dough is rather heavy and very filling, but that’s the way any gluten-free dough that you can roll, cut and pinch is going to be.
My whole family enjoyed these and I will definitely make them again. Thanks, Jamie!
