There are two kinds of calzone
, and they both come from Southern Italy
is a funny word, because calzoni
", so a calzone
would be one trouser leg. Anyway, back to the food:
- the fried calzone is a disc of dough that is filled with mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce, folded, and deep fried. I have had these in Puglia. They should be eaten hot.
- the baked calzone is basically a large pizza (in the Italian concept of pizza), folded in two and baked in a pizza oven.
Now quite frequent in pizzerias all over Italy.
