1. To make the dough, sprinkle the yeast over 1/2 cup warm water in a 4-ounce glass. Place the glass in a larger bowl containing enough hot waterto come up to the halfway mark on the glass. Set aside for 15 minutes.
2. Place the flour in a large bowl (or in a food processor). Add the yeast, 1 cup warm water, oil, and salt. Mix (or process) until you have a soft dough Add addional warm water as necessary. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth, taking in as much of the remaining flour as the dough will absorb, about 7 minutes. Place the dough in a clean bowl that has been well coated with olive oil. Cover with a damp towel and place in a warm spot to rise for 2 hours.
3. Meanwhile, make the filling. Heat the oil in a skillet and saute the onion over low heat for 7 minutes or until soft. Add the cabbage and lemon juice, cover and saute for 10 minutes until the cabbage is wilted. Stir in the vinegar, season with salt and pepper, transfer to a bowl, and bring to room temperature.
4. Crumble the chevre into the cooled cabbage and toss with the parsley.
5. Roll the dough into sixteen 4-inch rounds. Brush each with a little oil.
6. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Divide the cabbage and chevre among the 16 rounds, placing it on half the dough and leaving about a 1/2-inch margin. Fold the dough over and press with your fingers to seal the edges tightly. Brush each calzonetti with a little oil and set on a baking sheet (or pizza stone) that has been sprinkled with coarse-grind polenta. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is golden. Serve immediately.

Italy. Their size varies from 6 to 8 inches in length and fillings include anything from four cheeses to the standard tomatoes and mozzarella. A few years ago, I began to notice that Tuscans had appropriated the idea of calzones and pressed them into use as a cocktail party appetizer. The Tuscan version, however, is made smaller in size and wrapped around largely vegetable fillings. The result is a marvelous slightly larger-than bite sized nibble.
