Calzone recipes

Meat feast calzone

Meat feast calzone

By Simon Rimmer

A pizza that is folded in half and baked so that the filling is enclosed completely - similar to a Cornish pasty or turnover. Calzones are usually made as a single serving. They're popular street food in Italy, particularly in Naples where pizza is said to have originated. People fold them into quarters and eat them with their hands while they’re on the go.
