Calzone is a cheesy, flaky brown crust relish recipe is a turnover of pizza dough stuffed with various fillings and cheese fried or baked originated in Naples this is actually Italian food 

This recipe is made with ingredients that are like a pizza, but they are not same it is folded into a crescent shape before it is baked, Honestly speaking I tried this recipe the first time but trust me this first attempted been successful, here I prepared mince filling with white sauce for stuffing in the calzone

You can prepare desirable filling such as vegetable, chicken, or even beef mutton additionally, I used red chili powder to make my calzone spicy, whereas Italian pizza doesn’t require red pepper, they use paprika powder instead of red chili powder but as I mentioned above I wanted spicy calzone so I did you can use to taste

Tips for making perfect calzones:
  1. The part of this calzone recipe that requires the most skill is making the dough. Our homemade Pizza Dough recipe is our tried and true method and has all the instructions you need to break down making pizza dough at home.
  2. Fully sauté mince before filling. Make sure to sauté your mince before filling the calzone. Sautéing the mince releases most of their liquid, so you won’t wind up with a soggy calzone.
  3. Don’t overstuff it! When filling a calzone pizza, put in less cheese and mince filling than you think you’ll need. An overstuffed calzone will start oozing in the oven and the crust will get soggy. Overfilling it will also make it tougher to crimp the edges of the calzone closed and will make the whole process incredibly messy (it’d still be delicious though!
