I made this - just to see how it compared to another recipe on this site...REAL ITALIAN CALZONES. I am staying with the othr recipe because it seemed to be a bigger hit at my house. This was missing something for us. You should not mess with perfection - and for us (personal taste) we preferred the other recipe. Good stuff though - so try it and compare yourself.
This is a great recipe. While it may not be the easiest or fastest it is worth the effort. I made a different filling for it however and I think you should feel free to make whatever filling you'd like. Because my filling was only enough for 4 I used the dough to make 4 calzones even though the recipe makes enough dough for 6 calzones. That was a mistake on my part because it made the calzones too doughy. But my husband was raving about it; between each bite he said "This is delicious " "This is soooo good!" That's worth any amount of effort!:)
The calzones were good but the recipe only came out with enough to stuff about 4 1/2 calzones the way it was measured. I had to make extra to go inside the remaining ones. I also used premade garlic & herb dough from Trader Joe's instead of making my own like the recipe said and they tasted great with the herb dough. When they were done baking we dipped them in marinara sauce to add some extra flavor. I am rather inexperienced at cooking and found this recipe difficult (and rather time consuming with the problems I encountered) but tasty.
This was a very tasty calzone although it was a bit time consuming. Worth the time though for the delicious homemade dough crust! We had it with spaghetti sauce on top although it would be good plain too!
I used this recipe just for the crust part(I just use pepperoni & cheese for filling) but the crust is phenomenal! I LOVE it!!! My husband works a job where he is always in a truck & doesn't have time to stop and eat but these are great because he can take them with him.
