  • Step 1

    Begin by dividing the dough into two equal balls. Roll out each into a 26cm circle on a floured surface

  • Step 2

    Spread half of the ricotta onto each circle leaving a 2.5cm border around the edges. Season each with salt and pepper. Spread 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce onto each circle over the ricotta. Sprinkle over half the mozzarella, half the basil leaves and half the salami onto each circle

  • Step 3

    Dampen the edges of the dough lightly with water and flip one half over the other to make a half moon. Press the edges together to close then go around the edge pinching and folding the dough over onto itself to ensure it is sealed

  • Step 4

    Insert the crisper plates into both drawers. Spray the plates with oil and place a calzone into each drawer. Spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce over the top of each calzone, avoiding the crimped edges. Spray the calzone with oil and insert both drawers into the unit

  • Step 5

    Select Zone 1, turn the dial to select AIR FRY, set temperature to 220°C, and set time to 9 minutes. Select MATCH. Press the dial to begin cooking

  • Step 6

    Begin checking after 8 minutes. The last minute is crucial. They will be done at 8 minutes but to get the calzone a little crisper and coloured, cook for another 20-30 seconds. Watch carefully as the top of the calzone will most likely burn if you cook them for the whole 9 minutes

  • Step 7

    Serve hot drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, if desired
