1 cup flour

1 large egg

2 cups Locatelli Romano

3 cups Durkee red hot sauce

1/4 cup melted butter, plus more for brushing calzone

1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced

2 teaspoons fresh jalapeno, roasted, seeded, and chopped

1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled

Calzone Cheese:

2 1/2 pounds shredded Provolone cheese

21/2 pounds shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese

1 cup dried parsley

2 tablespoons dried basil

2 cups grated Locatelli Romano cheese

4 garlic cloves, minced fine

1 cup minced onions

3 eggs

Pizza Dough:

7 1/2 cups high gluten flour (Conagra Hy-Jump or Dakotana)

3 tablespoons sugar

1 ounce vegetable shortening

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups water (lukewarm to slightly warm)

1 1/2 tablespoon active, dry, granulated, yeast

Pinch sugar

Directions

  1. Place cheeses in bowl, add parsley, basil, Romano and mix well. In separate bowl, place garlic and onion and crack 3 eggs on top. Mix well and add to cheese mixture until well incorporated. Set aside.
  2. For the Pizza Dough: Place flour, sugar, shortening and salt in bowl of mixer. Place water in separate bowl, add yeast and sugar, let stand for 5 to 8 minutes until yeast rises to top of water. With kneading hook on the mixer, start mixer and add water. Mix for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from bowl and place on floured sheet pan. Knead slightly adding flour if needed to form a large dough ball. Refrigerate for 45 minutes before using various recipes. Special note: Flour must be high gluten. Yeast must be granulated.
  3. Assembly: Cut chicken into strips. Coat with flour, then egg, and then Romano cheese. Make sure that cheese is well coated on the chicken. Place on oiled sheet pan in a preheated 500 degree oven for 5 minutes. While chicken is cooking, mix red hot sauce, butter, garlic and jalapeno and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Place pizza dough on peel and spread into a circle. Place calzone cheese on 1 half of the circle. Remove chicken from the oven and place in mixing bowl. Cover with sauce and coat well. Place chicken on top of calzone cheese, cover with a little sauce and blue cheese, fold, brush with butter and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, slice and serve with extra wing sauce on the side.
