Since going vegan, I’ve barely missed any foods because there are so many amazing vegan alternatives. However, that can not be said for vegan calzones. When I was in elementary school, this was one of my favorite lunches, but I had not had a calzone for YEARS! So I finally decided to make my own from scratch, and I was not disappointed. I hope you love this vegan calzones recipe!

How to make the calzones

  • Combine the warm water with the sugar and whisk them together. Then sprinkle the yeast on top. Set aside for ten minutes.
  • After ten minutes, add the olive oil and stir everything together.
  • To a new bowl, add the flour and salt and mix them. Then add the yeast mixture.
  • Knead into a dough and sprinkle more flour if necessary. Cover the dough with a towel and set aside for 1.5 hours. The dough should double in size in this time.
  • After the dough has risen, divide it into like 4 equal parts. Roll out each part into a flat disc using a rolling pin. On one side of the calzone, spread marinara sauce. On top, add dairy-free mozzarella.
  • Fold the calzone in half. Use a fork to press down the two sides together.
  • Optional: cut a few small air slits into the top of each calzone. Then lightly coat the pocket in olive oil.
  • To the top of each calzone, add more marinara sauce, cheese, and fresh basil.
  • Repeat this for each of the four calzones. Bake them for 20-25 minutes at 350F/175C.
