A Calzone vs a Stromboli

When translated from Italian, the word calzone means trouser or stocking. Calzones originated in Naples, Italy and were named for the baggy-legged pants worn by Neapolitan men during the 18th century. Essentially, a calzone is like a large stuffed pizza or turnover, made with an outer crust of pizza dough. Think of it as our crispy golden pizza crust that has been folded in half and sealed at the edges forming a huge moon shape and baked with all the goodies inside. When opened, the melted cheese filling- our special blend of ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, black pepper and garlic- flows from the dough similar to the flow of lava from volcano. All calzones are served with marinara sauce on the side. On the other hand a stromboli, although of the same shape and crust, it is served with sauce on the inside of the folded crust and does not have ricotta-based cheese filling. It is stuffed with mozzarella cheese only, along with other ingredients of your choice. At Josie’s Pizza and Wings, while stromboli are not found on our menu (were all big cheese fans over here), we can easily make one for you upon request. Ingredients in both calzones and stromboli can include an assortment of cheeses, meats and vegetables of your choice. Toppings are extra for our regular 12” or large 15”.
