“Make calzone like an Italian with this recipe! You can use the filling of your choice, but this is my versione vegetariana. You could also use Prosciutto di Parma, ricotta, or spinach. As I remember from my childhood in Italy, the tomato sauce was served on the side so everyone could take as much as they wanted. Add some spice with chili oil or arugula on the side.”
