A calzone is an Italian oven baked sandwich that resembles a folded pizza. The recipe originated in Naples, Italy. However there are different variations depending on the Italian region. For example, calzones in Sicily contain onions whereas calzones in Apulia contain tomatoes and mozzarella. In Italy, calzones are the most commonly delivered type of pizza. This is because their shape helps with heat retention, so they are delivered hot and ready to eat! Calzones commonly contain ingredients including tomatoes, mozzarella, salami, parmesan, and ricotta. The dough of a calzone is made from flour, yeast, olive oil, water and salt. Today we watch Laura Vitale show us how to make her delicious prosciutto and ricotta calzone recipe in the video below!
