About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

I don't eat so much of these but when I crave for one, I would make them myself. Because there aren't so many calzone on any menu at Peppes or Dolly Dimple. I'm not a huge fan with those frozen calzone in the Norwegian grocery stores.

It's pretty simple to make.

1 cup warm water
1 package active dried yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 1/2 cup flour ( I used extra flour for kneading)

Preheat oven 375 degrees F.

I added warm water and yeast in a large bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes until became creamy. I stirred in salt, oil, and brown sugar. Mixed well with spoon. Then I added about 2 1/2 cup flour, knead until combined. Shaped into large ball, greased dough ball, placed in bowl, and covered. Set a side until dough double it's size. Half hour later I floured my work surface. Punched dough down and divided dough into 4 pieces. Knead, rolled with a rolling pin and shape into circle pizza shape. Added my topping. Fold dough and shape into calzone. Pinched and sealed the edges. Brushed olive oil on top. Bake in oven 375 degrees F. 25 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot. It's so yummy. The bread is semi crispy and  flaky.
