Calzone Dough

What you need: 

1 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
pinch salt
6 tablespoons ice water (or more as needed)
4 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

What you do: 

1. In a bowl combine flour, garlic powder, flaxseeds, and salt, and mix with a fork. Add the olive oil and water.
2. Mix until a ball of dough forms kneading until that happens. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time if necessary. Wrap in saran wrap and set aside to make desired filling.
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut into 8 even pieces (keeping all wrapped in plastic except the one you are working with.) Roll out on a cutting board and use flour to keep from sticking. Make a 5 or 6" round.
4. Place 1/3 of desired filling into each and fold over and seal. Brush with olive oil and bake for 40 minutes.
The flaxseeds in this act as a fat and cut down the calories and amount of olive oil needed.

I grew up eating lots of calzones, and love them. Haven't had them for 5 years since I turned vegan! So thought I'd give making them myself a shot. Tried using this for the crust... Though it's a decent crust, it's not at all like authentic calzone crust (Well, not even close, really). So if you just want a crust that you can use with calzone filling... this might do. But if you want a real calzone crust, keep looking ;)!

(S)he meant ground, as is explained in the recipe directions rather than the ingredient list. 

Of course you can get ground flax seed at a health food store, BUT, FYI I found some at Wal-Mart (a "Supercenter") so that makes me think it's probably not too exotic for any other "regular" grocery store.

Good luck!  :)

i made this dough and it came out fantastic, but i was wondering...
when you called out for flax seeds,
did you mean the flax seed as a whole or the flax seed flour?

If I were to only make one calzone at a time, could I store the dough for later use? Where would I store it & for how long would it stay good/fresh? Also, where can I find ground flaxseed? Thanks!
