Had the day off and had some pizza dough laying around begging to be thrown into the Egg.
I stuffed them with sausage, meatballs, pepperoni, onion, fresh tomato, black olives, mozzarella, and provolone and fresh basil.
We made 2, and the ruler that is in between them is a 15 inches... These were monsters.
Ate one for supper and will have the other for lunch....










And after 3 hours in the pool, this is what my dog looked like - had to take a picture since it doesn't happen very often....

Thanks guys - they were pretty tasty!
I cooked them at 500 degrees. The one on the right went about 30 minutes, the one on the left I cooked 2nd and it went about 20ish minutes.

Those things look great ellymae.



I was going to ask what the difference between a stromboli & a calzone was but it sounds like they are the same thing.

When I was a kid we used to get deep fried calzones in the Farmer's Market in Fresno. I can still taste em.

But every calzone I've had since then has been baked & its just not the same. And they were served only one way, an Italian spiced finely ground beef with mozzarella. Anyone else had a deep fried calzone?

I just ate a feta/spinach stuffed chicken tit and those are still making me salivate.

Oh, and the Sicilian in me wants to inform you all (especially The Iceman) that technically a Panzerotti is a calzone, but it's deep fried. Yep. You heard right.

There's a greasy spoon not four blocks from me that specializes in panzerotti's that advertises as "The heart attack capitol of the country". Oh yeah.

They also have a cheesy beef with fries and a drink for $4.50 24/7. And they deliver up untill 4AM. Again... You heard right.

I agree with trashcan, a Panzerotti it a deep fried calzone.

Want to try a good strom? Make cheesesteak fixins and put that in a stromboli! MMmmmm....

Calzone I think of more ricotta and mozz cheese with maybe ham..
