Calzone – Pompano Beach

Calzone is a half-moon pocket of pizza or bread dough that is stuffed with typical pizza toppings—such as cheese, meat, and vegetables—and often served with marinara sauce. Calzone originated in Naples and it actually means “trouser” in Italian. They have become popular around the world, with many variations depending on the region. Calzones are usually baked, though some versions are deep-fried.

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. Calzones usually use a blend of cheese that often incorporates ricotta. The tomato sauce for the Calzone is never placed inside the dough. They're always dipped.

  • Pepperoni + Black Olives.
