Calzone on the Trail!
When I came across this, I thought it was a joke! I'm not one to carry a lot of food stuff with me on a hike, but I guess if you want something really special on the trail, this might be the answer: Trail Calzone!
Look at that cheesy, saucy goodness. That is a crazy calzone, and someone made it on the trail!
Here's the ingredients you'd need to bring:
1 tsp. dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
1 Tbs. dried onion
1 Tbs. dried green and red peppers
1 1/2 cups water (approximate)
4-6 Tbs. tomato base
2Tbs. powdered milk (optional)
1/2 tsp. oregano and/or basil
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. garlic
He used dehydrated broccoli and monterey jack cheese but you can kind of use whatever you want!
1. Gather enough kindling to last for at least 20 minutes.
2. Make the dough: Dissolve yeast in warm water with sugar and salt. Add flour and mix to make a stiff dough. heavily oil a fry pan, and spread dough in pan with oiled fingers to form crust. Try to keep the edges on top oil-free and turn up those edges a bit to hold the sauce.
3. Put the cheese, then sauce, then toppings in it. Try to avoid the edges.
4. Using the same dough as above, but don't oil it, put it on top and then try to seal the edges together as best you can.
5. Cover in cheese and red pepper flakes.
6. Cover and bake on stove on low heat with a twig fire on top of the lid until crust is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Shift the pan every once and a while.
7. Cut and enjoy!
