FODMAP friendly Calzones

Here are my calzones or (as I like to call them because I am apparently not an adult yet) pizza pies!

These are really quick to make and are perfect for a fancy-looking dinner for friends or a nice Friday night treat, when you don’t want to be mainstream and just make a pizza…


  • Approx. 4 tablespoons tomato purée (check ingredients for garlic/onion)
  • Generous handful of spring onion green tips – chopped finely
  • 1 large tomato (I used Roma, make sure you know it has good flavour, no sainsburys basics here!)
  • Small handful of chilli flakes (optional!)
  • Big handful of fresh basil – chopped finely (leave a few leaves for putting on top of mix)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of garlic oil mixed with a little olive oil
  • Oregano
  • Salt & pepper
  • Lactose Free Mozzerella – chopped thinly (p.s. don’t cook this with the other stuff! Use it for putting on to the mix)

(N.B. This recipe makes 3 Calzone – adapt ingredients to increase amount of calzone)


I used a pre-packaged GF pizza base dough for this recipe from Croustipate (French brand – available for online order in Rewe Deutschland). But a homemade pizza dough recipe would also work of course (I don’t yet have one but I would recommend this one, this blog is great:


  1. Preheat the oven to 230’c (200’c for fan –  if you’re using prepackaged dough remember to take it out the fridge about 10 minutes before so it comes up to room temp)
  2. Heat a frying pan with the oil. When hot, put the mix ingredients – excluding the purée – into the frying pan and stir for a few minutes until well-combined and softened.
  3. Add tomato purée and stir until it goes a bit liquid-y and covers everything in the pan. Season to taste.
  4. Prepare your calzone! Best thing to do is cut your pizza dough into shapes like the below – you will need two pieces of roughly the same size for each calzone. Position the tomato mix in the middle leaving a circumference of a few cm around the mix. 
  5. Pop some basil leaves and some of the chopped mozzarella on top of the mix.
  6. Put your other piece of same-sized dough on top of the other and pinch the sides all the way round and make sure they are sealed. Push everything down a bit to flatten it. Don’t worry if a bit of sauce comes out the sides, it’ll just make it crispier!
  7. Cook for around 10 minutes or until golden brown. Watch they don’t burn! VOILÀ!

HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM! I certainly did, and I have two in the fridge for next few days, going to see what they taste like cold. M&S do these little mini calzone things that taste like pizza, used to love them before my tummy issues, but these reminded me of them!

If you try these out I would LOVE to see how they turn out, bet they’ll be prettier than mine! Tag me on insta @lenashappytummy!
