4 portions

Ingredients

  • 60 ml (¼ cup) sundried tomato pesto
  • 250 ml (1 cup) diced ham

  • In a skillet, heat the sundried tomato pesto over medium heat and brown the diced ham and spinach for 3 to 4 minutes. Let cool. Separate the pizza dough into 4 parts.
  • On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll out the dough in a circle until it is ½ cm (¼ inch) thick. Preheat the oven to 425 °F (210 °C).
  • Add the cheese to the ham mixture. Use the result to top the pizza dough, leaving an untopped border.
  • Beat the egg with a little water and brush the edges of each dough circle. Fold them over to make calzones by pinching the dough borders together.
  • Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and brush the tops of each calzone with remaining egg.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Fruity and medium-bodied

These medium-bodied wines have a more intense colour, a rich nose dominated by fruit aromas and present but subtle tannins.
