A calzone (/kælˈzoʊni/, US: /kælˈzoʊneɪ/ UK: /kælˈtsoʊni/; Italian: [kalˈtsoːne], “stocking” or “trouser”) is an Italian oven-baked folded pizza that originated in Naples. A typical calzone is made from salted bread dough, baked in an oven and is stuffed with salami, ham or vegetables, mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan or pecorino cheese, as well as an egg. Different regional variations on a calzone can often include other ingredients that are normally associated with pizza toppings.
In the United States, calzones are typically made from pizza dough and stuffed with meats, cheeses and vegetables. Traditional calzone dough consists of flour, yeast, olive oil, water and salt. Calzones are similar to stromboli; traditionally, though, the two are different dishes.
As a rule, calzones are usually stuffed with cheeses such as ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, provolone or a different local cheese. The dough is folded into a half-moon shape, then either sealed with an egg mixture or shaped into a sphere. It is then either baked or fried. After being cooked, calzones might be served with marinara sauce, or alternatively topped with a combination of garlic, olive oil, and parsley: this depends on the region.
Scacciata is a similar dish to a calzone; however, this dish is normally filled with either broccoli, spinach, potatoes or onions, and sometimes sausage.
