450 g / 1 lb mushrooms, quartered
45 ml / 3 tbsp olive oil
600 g / 1 lb 5 oz pizza dough, in 4 equal pieces
125 ml / 1/2 cup tapenade
350g / 12 oz cooked ham, in strips
400 ml / 1 2/3 cups / 200g grated Friulano cheese
20 basil leaves
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 220ºC / 425ºF.
In a large skillet, sauté the mushrooms in the oil until golden. Set aside.
On a floured work surface, roll and stretch the dough to make four 18 cm / 7” circles. Shake off excess flour.
Spread some tapenade on each circle, arrange mushrooms, ham and cheese on one half, and top with basil leaves. Fold the dough over and pinch the edges well to seal.
Brush each calzone with beaten egg yolk and pierce with a fork.
Arrange the calzones on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake on the middle rack until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.
