If you’re going to make a calzone at home, go for authentic Italian flavor – it’s easy with Il Villaggio. The legendary flavor of calzones is just some pizza dough and Il Villaggio Cheeses away!
There’s no need to spend hours making your own dough. Purchase some prepackaged pizza dough. One bag is generally the size of a medium pizza – enough for about one large calzone or two small ones. For a healthier option, look for whole wheat dough.
After placing your ingredients of choice inside flattened squares of dough, fold them into a calzone shape and brush with egg wash. Bake at 375 degrees for about half an hour – until the crust is golden brown and the interior is hot, melted and delicious! Try these epic flavor combinations today!
Chicken & Parm
This classic features Italy’s most famous cheeses. Gather panko-breaded sliced chicken, marinara sauce and a cup of Il Villaggio Mozzerella Cheese. Top with a few sprinkles of grated Il Villaggio Parmiggiano Reggiano. Cook the chicken first, then place in the middle of the rolled-out dough and top with the sauce and cheese.
Salami & Provolone
Why waste this flavor combination in a boring sandwich? This calzone can be whipped up with the same ease as a ham and cheese on rye. Assemble some provolone, salami or capicolla along with sliced Il Villaggio Provolone. Add sliced tomatoes, peppers and onions for even more flavor.
Spinach & Ricotta
With a firm texture that’s moist and delicate, Il Villaggio Ricotta Salata brings a supple, mild taste featuring notes of nuts and a slight sweetness. Pairing it with bright, vibrant-tasting spinach tastes great. Boil the spinach for about a minute before making the calzones to ensure the leaves are full of flavor and packed with nutrients. Cut the calzones into bite-sized pieces for a unique appetizer that’s a fun replacement for salad.
