“An Italian dish known as calzoni di patate filanti, AKA trousers of stringy potatoes. A calzone is directly translated as “stocking” or “trouser” is an Italian oven-baked turnover made with folded pizza dough. It originated in Naples in the 18th century. 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 in or on a calzone can often include other ingredients that are normally associated with pizza toppings. The term usually applies to an oven-baked turnover rather than a fried pastry (i.e. panzerotti), though calzoni and panzerotti are often mistaken for each other. A calzone is somewhat similar to a stromboli. A calzone is a baked turnover stuffed with pizza ingredients.”
Perfect as a little appetiser, easy to make and a favourite for those who love cheese. For a vegetarian option, replace the sliced ham with spinach.
