Wikipedia: Calzone
A calzone (/kælˈzoʊni/, US: /kælˈzoʊneɪ/ or /kælˈzoʊn/, UK: /kælˈtsoʊni/; Italian: [kalˈtsoːne], “stocking” or “trouser") is an Italian dumpling consisting of an oven-baked folded pizza dough that originated in Naples. A typical calzone is made from salted bread dough, baked in an oven and stuffed with salami or ham, mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan or pecorino cheese, as well as an egg. Different regional variations on a calzone can often include other ingredients that are normally associated with pizza toppings.

@kittenwithawhip I love calzone. Basically an excuse to eat a whole pizza by yourself. Ate lots in Hoboken. Usually hungover.
