Calzone fillings

i'm on a bit of a calzone kick right now, and i've been making some basic pepperoni and cheese zones. what i'm wondering is if anyone has any good ideas for more nonconventional fillings. i was thinking something with chicken, or perhaps a veggie calzone. any thoughts?

My favorite calzone to make is a ground chicken and cheese calzone. I take a pound of ground chicken and cook it in the skillet with whatever seasonings I want at the time. I tend to undercook it a bit. I then put that along with shredded cheese into my calzone dough and into the oven it goes.

Calzones have an Italian aura so most folks think of pizza toppings and flavors when they make calzones.

Think about other cuisines when trying to come up with fillings. Chinese, Mexican, BBQ, etc.

One of the best calzones I ever made had cooked brisket, barbecue sauce, sharp cheddar, and red onion. Absolutely divine!

For me a calzone is like and egg roll. Anything in the fridge is a likely candidate for fillings. I like to use leftover sloppy joe mix for filling, especially if I happen to have some stir fry veggies leftover too.

Great ideas! We like grilled chicken (leftover) with broccoli and cheese, sausage with onions and peppers and cheese, BBQ chicken and cheese. Now I'm hungry!

I'm a fan of BBQ sauce, a blend of Mozzarella and Cheddar, Broccoli, and pre-cooked bacon. If you have some pulled pork or chicken add that too!
