A Calzone is like a mini pizza pocket and is very easy to make at home! A pizza dough is filled to the brim with cheese and the ingredients are baked until golden.

Make them yours by adding your favorite ingredients and fillings! They're a great portable meal and heat up well for snacks and quick meals throughout the week!

What is a calzone?

A calzone is an oven-folded pizza that has sealed edges so that everything good remains!

Anything that goes to a pizza can go to a calzone! Pizza fillings are placed in the middle of the pizza dough in a circular shape. Then the dough is folded, pressed, stirred with an egg or a brush of olive oil and baked in the oven.

Stromboli vs. Calzone

Both strombolis and calzones have the same dough and even the same ingredients, although a traditional calzone often has ricotta.

The main difference is in how they are sealed. A stromboli is rolled up and a calzone is pressed and sealed. A Stromboli is cut after baking, while a calzone is usually carried by hand or a single serving.

Whatever your preference, they both taste great!

Tips and variations

Mass Use homemade or store bought / canned pizza dough. Either one works well in this recipe.

A lot of local pizzerias (or Italian markets) sell fresh homemade dough and can be stored in the freezer. I always pick up a couple of packages to have on hand!

Fillers I use a little pizza sauce and always serve with extra for dipping. The sky is the limit for fillings. Make sure your meats are cooked and watery vegetables (like mushrooms or pineapple) are cooked and / or drained.

cheese The mozzarella (and a little Parmesan if you like) adds the perfect flavor. Ricotta It is a traditional and delicious addition (but not something I usually have on hand). Upload what you have on hand.

Be sure to let the shorts cool for a few minutes as the fillings will be hot. A couple of minutes of rest will prevent the cheese from being too liquid.

How to make a calzone

Making calzone is as easy as folding a pizza in half!

  1. Divide the pre-made pizza dough into equal portions and form a circle.
  2. In the middle of the dough, spread the ingredients. Fold and crimp the edges.
  3. Cut the vents, brush with oil, and bake (per recipe below).

Serve the calzones hot with a marinara sauce.


The best way to store leftovers is to put them in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

To freeze the shorts, put them in a zippered bag labeled with the date. They should be kept for about a month.
