Calzone is an Italian oven-baked folded pizza that originated in Naples. Now with so many filling choices, you can design your calzone however you want, just like pizza.
The stuffing or filling that I am using today is my favorite. It takes several steps to make it, but let me tell you, it’s not difficult at all. I consider this in a league of very easy dishes.
Also, you may make your own dough or get it from the store. When I am lazy, usually I’d get dough from the store, but most of the time I make it a night before.
However, my boys are not too keen on mushrooms so I’d make for my older one Hawaiian Calzone, and for my youngest boy three meat Calzone.
My daughter essentially loves anything that you put in front of her, and she is not as picky as my boys, but I got to give them a credit that at least they try.
Personally, for me, mushrooms are heavenly. I love them and probably add them in so many one-pot dishes, especially sauces. Mushrooms are so delicious and there is nobody who can convince me otherwise.
Now, if you do not eat meat at all, please use loads of mushrooms, maybe sauteed peppers and onions, and make your vegetarian calzone.
With that being said, you may use sauteed chicken, beef, or deli hard salami, pepperoni, ham, etc. Seriously the possibilities are endless, however, today I am using my favorite.
