About Calzone / Folded Pizza , 50:50 version Recipe

A Calzone is an italian oven baked filled pizza , shaped like a folded pizza. The Calzone originated in Naples. Taste wise their might not be much of a difference to that of  a Pizza but look wise it definetely differs. For me as a sweet lover it more looks like Kajjikaya but the savory version.
