Essentially, it’s a pizza but inside out. So, you’ll have a savory bread crust all the way around. Then, it’s traditionally filled with various cheeses like mozzarella or ricotta, salami, or ham.

History 101


Back in the 1700s, in Naples, Italy, calzones were a classic street food offered all around the city. Due to the convenient shape and style of food, calzones were always meant to be eaten on the go. The crispy crust and gooey cheese became a popular hit and were easy to make! Although, unlike our dinner portions today, the traditional calzone was significantly smaller, as they were meant to be portable.


As time passed, eventually, the calzone made its way to the United States. In 1966, the food appeared on the television show Seinfield, making its way into the American diet. Plus, in the popular sitcom show Parks and Recreation, one of the main characters, personality is based on things that go against the norm. Just because calzones are the most popular option doesn’t mean they aren’t delicious! Now, you can enjoy the best calzones and take out food in Dracut!
