Goat's cheese and asparagus calzone pizza

From Cookipedia

The inspiration for this recipe came from Sophie Grigson and William Black's Organic cookbook ISBN0 747272204

I wanted something to use this year's meagre crop of giant asparagus, so this recipe seemed an ideal candidate.

The giant asparagus is a little on the woody side so it needs much more cooking than normal.

Eveything else was from either a fridge or a garden raid. We have our own hens so that's a help!

Mise en place


  1. Make 1 pizza per person
  2. Roll the dough out into two circles
  3. Divide the fillings into two portions, one for each pizza
  4. Spread the tomato sauce on to one half of the circle, leaving the edge free from sauce
  5. Crumble the cheese over the sauce
  6. Sprinkle the chopped herbs, asparagus and green peppers over the sauce
  7. Pop the egg in the middle, season with salt and pepper and give a final drizzle of olive oil
  8. Brush the clean edge with water or milk so it helps to make a good seal
  9. Fold the pizza Calzone folding
  10. Bake for about 20 minutes


  • These pizzas are so versatile that you can put almost anything in them. They will get hot enough to melt the cheese but anything that might need pre-cooking needs to be done outside of the pizza. They get just hot enough to cook a raw egg if that's any help.

Chef's notes

As we make pizzas so often, I divide up homemade tomato sauce into single-pizza-portions and freeze them in small bags. If I've no homemade sauce, I cheat and use a few tablespoons from a bottle of ready made pasta sauce and freeze the remainder as above.
