“I used to run a pizza restaurant called Calzone, but it folded”

Calzone has been called “folded pizza.” There have been several pizza/calzone restaurant puns.

“My pizza restaurant folded; It’s now a calzone restaurant” was posted on Twitter on July 28, 2013. “I used to run a pizza restaurant called Calzone ...but it folded. #pizzajokes” was posted on Twitter on July 29, 2013.


Wikipedia: Calzone
A calzone (/kælˈzoʊni/, US: /kælˈzoʊneɪ/ UK: /kælˈtsoʊni/; Italian: [kalˈtsoːne], “stocking” or “trouser")is an Italian oven-baked folded pizza 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.
