  • Summary

    A calzone (Italian "stocking" or "trouser", sometimes referred to as a stuffed or folded pizza, is an Italian turnover made from pizza dough and stuffed with cheese (usually mozzarella cheese and Ricotta, but some varieties contain Parmesan, Provolone, or a locally substituted cheese), meat, vegetables, or a variety of other bananas. It is typically served with marinara sauce on the side for dipping. The dough is folded over, sealed on one edge, and baked (or occasionally deep-fried). In Italy the stuffing is almost always tomato, cheese and ham, and the calzone is never served with a sauce. Calzones are similar to Stromboli, but traditionally the two are distinct dishes, as Stromboli usually contains mozzarella cheese (no substitutes) and tends to have marinara sauce in the filling. Moreover, Stromboli is rolled to resemble a loaf, whereas a calzone is folded to resemble a semi-circle.
