Note: These expand and get bigger over all in the oven. Really amazing! In addition, for a grain-free version, see the Helpful Hints below. I have subsequently found that I can make 6 calzones with the single batch (12 with a double batch)...that brings the carbs down a bit more.

MIRACLE DOUGH TIPS: - Please note:- USE BOB'S RED MILL COCONUT FLOUR FOR ALL MY RECIPES AND ESPECIALLY FOR THIS MIRACLE DOUGH - COCONUT FLOURS DIFFER GREATLY IN THEIR ABILITY TO ABSORB MOISTURE! There are several variations of this kind of dough on the internet, but mine is different to all the others out there. I am getting very adept with this dough. Use a fork to make it come together. At first it looks impossible (might even have strings of cheese in it), but keep mixing and then turn out on a cutting board. Knead for a couple of minutes, adding a bit of coconut flour as needed to make a lovely elastic dough. The more coconut flour one can add (usually about 1 tbsp or a bit more), the more bread-like the dough becomes (more substantial). Since coconut flour is mostly fiber, you're not really adding much in the way of carbs, spread over several servings. I put the dough ball on parchment paper and cover the dough with plastic wrap and using a rolling pin (sometimes I use my special small one for pie dough), roll it out with ease. If at any time the dough becomes resistant to rolling, nuke it approximately 10 to 20 seconds and away you go again!
Here is a pic of the dough ball - lovely, soft and malleable!!
Mozzarella cheeses that I have successfully used with the Miracle Dough and The Sweet Miracle Pastry Dough as well. I get mine from Price Smart in South America, which is the same as Costco in the United States.
I tried this one a couple of times
I usually grate my own cheese using my 20-year old Braun food processor, which has a ton of gadgets - this is the cheese I use most often - looks like it might be very similar to the one above, however, I think they sometimes add something to their grated cheese to help it last longer. I could be wrong. CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO SEE A BIGGER IMAGE.
(just to balance very savory flavors)
For a Grain-Free version, use a bake mix made up of 2 cups (500 mL) almond flour and 2/3 cup (150 mL) coconut flour. Use 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the mixture. Or, simply use 2/3 cup (150 mL) almond flour and 2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut flour for each batch of Miracle Dough (I have not tested this smaller version, but the Grain-Free Bake mix - yes!). I still prefer the Miracle Dough goodies made with the Gluten-Free Bake Mix, however, this is a very lovely option. (6.9 g net carbs)
