  • Pour the beaten eggs into the mixture and stir until combined.
  • Add the boiling water and mix into a dough. 
  • Let the dough sit for at least 10 minutes to firm up.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  • Split the dough into 6 balls.
  • Roll out one ball in between two sheets of parchment paper.
  • Cut the dough in a circle (I use a small saucepan lid).
  • Spoon your mixture of choice into half of the dough.
  • Using the bottom parchment paper roll over half of the dough over the filled section and press down on the edges to seal it.
  • Repeat until the dough is used.
  • Place all calzones on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush the calzones with the beaten egg for a glaze.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and firm.
