Pizza! It is, quite possibly, the most popular food throughout the United States. The high-ranking reputation of pizza (and the endless array of topping formations, sauces, dough and cheeses) has led the way to other types of variances in the way that people enjoy those ingredients. No other pizza spin-off has had the success and prominence as the calzone.
A calzone is an Italian dish which originates from Naples, Italy, and is now served at nearly every Italian eatery, including Sardella’s Pizza and Wings. Essentially, a calzone is like a stuffed pizza or turnover, made with an outer crust of pizza dough and an inner filling that typically includes an assortment of cheeses, meats, sauce, and vegetables. The filling of the calzone is scooped onto one half of the dough, which is then folded over and crimped to make a tight seal. The calzone is then baked and served steaming hot.
The best part of calzones is that the filling can be customized, just like a pizza. You can have any cheese mixture including Parmesan, ricotta, and mozzarella; chopped cooked meats; and vegetables like garlic, mushroom, onions and tomatoes. Sardella’s pizza can make a vegetarian calzone by adding a rich vegetable mixture, spices and herbs, and even fresh tomato and basil as the filling.
The calzones at Sardella’s are large and can be split among several people, or feed someone very hungry. Calzones are also popular due to their portability (i.e. lunchboxes, picnics, or on the road).
