Bacon Mushroom Calzones

Bacon Mushroom Calzones

Bacon and Mushroom Calzones come packed with cheese, mushrooms, bacon and a secret ingredient that make these calzones phenomenal.

Pizza has become a staple at my house on the weekend. However, we’re starting the get a bit bored with it, so this weekend we decided to try a calzone.

Calzones are really just Italian sandwiches traditionally stuffed with mozzarella and tomatoes and made from pizza dough. They make for great street food because they are easy to eat on the street while standing or walking. I suppose a calzone is similar to a stromboli, not really sure what the difference is, they look the same to me. I haven’t had many calzones before, I have had a couple strombolis here and there at restaurants and they looked just like calzones to me.
