Meatball Feast Calzone Review
The Pizza Lads were having a Pizza policy business conference debate brainstorming session between themselves. Bill said that it is our duty to bring every aspect of the Pizza world to our followers eyes, and that we don’t seem to have done any Calzone reviews. Ted was disbelieving but it was true!
So without further ado, we hurried off to rectify this situation. Now as our expert followers know, that a Calzone is basically a folded Pizza and according to Wikipedia, an interesting fact is that “In Italy, Calzones are popularly believed to be the most efficient type of Pizza for home delivery. This popular credence has some scientific ground as the folded nature of the Calzone results in a lower surface-to-volume ratio than a traditional Pizza resulting in better heat retention during the journey from the Pizzeria to the buyer’s home. This results in a Calzone being delivered warmer than Pizza all things equal. Ohh Err, still makes sense and Ted remembers one notable Pizza chain delivery Pizza that ended up somehow folding itself into a Calzone and he reckoned it was all the better for it!
Anyway were losing the plot. Off to Frankie and Benny’s we went as the big chains rarely offer Calzone. The offering looked like a huge Cornish pasty and with a nice charred bubbled look. The Dough was nice and chewy with a slightly crisp edge. The Meatballs were fresh tasting and delicious with a hint of seasoning. The Pepperoni had a good bite but wasn’t overwhelming the other ingredients. The Chicken added a diverse twist and was tender. Red Onion, red Pepper, Mozzarella and BBQ sauce completed the line up, although we felt that the red Onion was not required really, but the red Pepper was lovely. The Cheese was pretty cheesy indeed and the BBQ sauce was smoky tasting.
So a really nice dish and the overall combination was a winner..
A big “Calzone” thumbs up from The Pizza Lads
