Creole crawfish au gratin calzone - lotta pics

Upgraded our KA mixer a couple of weeks ago and I mixed up a kilo of Tipo 00 pizza dough.  Made a couple pizzas, have some dough left over in the fridge.  Seems to get better if you let it age for a while. 

Anyway, took about half of what was left over and combined it with some excellent crawfish au gratin SWMBO made yesterday to make calzone. 

I added some tomato, onion, cheese and creole spice.  Cooked around 500 F until the IT was around 190-200.

Came out great. Here are some pics.

    Well, I learned I should have pre-shrunk the canvas before I cut it.  But other than that, I've been using it every time I need to transfer dough, and I cook a lot of pies, calzone and stromboli.  That thing is fiberglassed with epoxy...it'll be around long after I'm gone.

    When freezing dough balls is it before any rise? Does it matter?

    It's better to let it rise before you freeze.  After you thaw it, you can punch it down and let it proof. It needs to rise to room temp, which takes a while.  In this case, the dough is fresh, been in the fridge for a week.

    But you can freeze immediately after making the dough....freezing just arrests the fermentation, it doesn't kill the yeast.  You just have a longer process after thawing.

    Nope.  The inside has top secret ingredients held together with transglutaminase, aka "meat glue".

    And I'd like to thank Cen-Tex for the meat glue...thankfully we didn't get our car searched on the way back from Salado.
