Sausage Pepperoni Peppers Mushroom Stromboli and Calzones

Monday, September 29, 2014
These are our most favorite game day foods or for all and any occasions. Perfect stuffed bread for all your family and party needs. These stuffed bread are filled with our favorites, sauteed sausage, peppers, mushrooms, and pepperoni. You can tailor these to your family's favorite pizza toppings and use what you like to fill these with. I will give you a list of suggestions below.

The cheese oozing out of these is the best part of a stromboli or calzone.

Are Strombolis and Calzones the same?

One is quite different in filling than the other.

For instance, calzones are ricotta-filled and essentially a pizza that is folded in half like a half-moon, and can be also stuffed with meats like ham or even spinach.

Stromboli is an entirely different shape than a calzone—they're more of a tube/cylinder and contain several layers of cheese, meats, and can have several vegetables in it.

Our family is not only a fan of stromboli and calzones we are also huge pizza fans here and make our own Homemade Pizza Dough along with Italian Stromboli, Panzerotti which is fried dough stuffed and Italian Fried Pizza Dough aka Pizza Fritta and of course Mom's Sausage Roll.

In Italy, a calzone is filled pretty much the same but often fried not baked, and called Panzerotti fritti.

Regardless of the shapes and filling both the Stromboli and Calzones are stuffed pizza dough.

For me, the more cheese the happier I am! The meat enhances the flavors from the oils it secretes.

Calzone Lovers!



What is a New York calzone? New York calzone is a delicious Homemade New York-style dough filled with ricotta cheese, tomato marinara sauce, Italian sausage, ham or salami, and sometimes raw or sauteed spinach with lots of cheese like Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese. The calzones are baked until golden brown; serve warm for a delicious dinner and sometimes served with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.
