Can you describe the ones you had a little more? There are many calzone recipes online but if you can describe it a little more (texture, flavors, other ingredients) I might be able to help you narrow down the field.
Mmmm well that certainly looks like it but it was a shortcrust pastry and not a bread/pizza dough.
The texture inside was really light & fluffy & very cheesy. I'm going to attempt some tomorrow, think I will add extra highly whipped egg white.
I thought that maybe this was something common in Itallian cuisine & I was just not looking properly, now I'm wondering if it was something the local baker created using the Calzone theory.
Feeling really hungry now looking at that Calzone!!!!
