Recipe: Calzone with broccoli and cheese

Hello everybody, I hope you had a great week! I originally planned to use these past few days to whip up some new DIY projects for you, but as it happens my doctor confined me to bed for one whole week and so the crafting will have to wait and I'm giving you a very delicious and healthy recipe as compensation. Deal?
If you don't know what calzone is - well, it's like if you take a pizza and fold it over. And pizza is awesome and so calzone is, too!

Calzone with broccoli and cheese

(easy, makes 4 servings)

For the dough
21g fresh yeast
1 pinch sugar
450g flour
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

For the filling
1-2 onions
1 clove of garlic
3 tablespoon olive oil
600g broccoli, salt
200g grated mozzarella
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1-2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
freshly ground pepper

1- In a large bowl mix the yeast with 200ml water (lukewarm), then add all the other ingredients for the dough and knead (by hand or using dough hooks) until the dough is soft and smooth. Cover the bowl and allow the dough to rise for 45 minutes.
2- For the filling chop the onions and the garlic. Lightly sautée both in a pan with oil until translucent. Let cool.
3-Wash the broccoli and separate into florets. Parboil in salt water for 3 minutes, rinse with cold water and let drain.
4- Mix the tomato paste with oil, ketchup and dried herbs. Season with salt and pepper.
5- Mix broccoli, onions and cheese and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
6- On a floured surface knead the dough once more and cut into 4 even portions. Roll every portion into a round shape measuring about 22cm in diameter.
7-Spread the tomato mixture on the dough pieces, leave the outer 2cm free. Place some broccoli cheese mixture in the middle. Coat the edges of the dough with water and fold them in half (over the broccoli cheese mixture). Press down the edges.
8- Preheat the oven to 220°C and bake the calzone for 35 minutes.
9- Enjoy!
