1.  Sieve the flour into a bowl. Add the yeast and sugar and beat in the stock and passata (sieved tomatoes) to make smooth dough.

2.  Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes, then place in a clean, lightly oiled bowl and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

3.  Heat the oil in a frying pan (skillet) and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, spinach, corn and beans and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the tomatoes purée (paste) and oregano and season well.

4.  Divide the risen dough into 4 equal portions and roll each onto a floured surface to form a 7 in (18 cm) circle. Spoon a quarter of the filling onto one half of each circle and top with cheese. Fold the dough over to encase the filling. sealing the edge with a fork. Glaze with beaten egg. Put the calzone on a lightly greased baking tray (cooking sheet) and cook in a preheated oven, 425 degrees F (220 C), for 25-30 minutes until risen and golden. Serve warm.
