Make no mistake about it, I have cracked the code to making the most amazing Calzones and it all starts with this Pizza Dough Recipe. Anyone that has used this dough has raved about it so, you should definitely start with that. This Calzone recipe, however, is a basic guide to teach you how to make the best Calzone through and through. Feel free to add or substitute anything you want for the filling but, I highly recommend that you stick with the Ricotta, the Mozzarella and EVERYTHING else about this recipe, so your Calzone will be amazing, too.
I’m using enough pizza dough for one 14″ Pizza to make this Stromboli. It’s approximately 2 ft long so it makes it real easy to cut off a slice, just like you would a sub sandwich, to serve to family and friends. Make yours however you want but I highly recommend making it this way. The Stromboli is both fun to make and equally impressive when it’s served.
This Stromboli recipe follows the idea of a Supreme Pizza with fresh veggies and Italian meats but you can put whatever you want in it. And that’s the best part. I love vegetarian Stromboli’s because they have so much flavor. Broccoli and Cheese Stromboli… Spinach, Onion and Mushroom Stromboli (Chicken)… Are you starting to see where I’m going with this? The possibilities are endless!
You may need a good Marinara or Pizza Sauce for dipping so I’ll include a link for that down below. You will also find a link for pizza dough in the ingredients if you need a recipe for that too. Both recipes are restaurant quality and worthy of hanging on to or even sharing with friends and family. Just be sure to tell them where you got it!
A Canoe Calzone. Yup, that’s what I’m calling it. And isn’t the name so fitting. Sure, maybe this really exists somewhere else and maybe it’s even got another name, but for now, this is how I’ll refer to it. The truth is, I didn’t come up with it either. When I sat down and ordered a Calzone off a Menu at a Restaurant here recently, this is how it came, more or less. And I felt like it was a good idea, minus the Marinara Sauce they served because it really sucked. But if you want to serve yours with Marinara or Pizza Sauce, more power to ya. I’m sure your recipe will taste just fine. But, if you need a Pizza Sauce recipe, I’ve got one for you. Just CLICK HERE! Also, if you are needing a Pizza Dough recipe CLICK HERE as well for the original post, because you are going to need one if you’re going to make this Canoe Calzone Recipe.
You really won’t need any other ingredients list to make these Calzones, because you can put anything you want in them. So I’ll just include the tutorial on how to fold them below. And I might as well double stack the videos for you so you can see how to make the dough. It’s an old video, but it’s accurate. Let me know how you like these Canoe Calzones in the Comments.
