I love calzones so much that I’m surprised I don’t eat them more often. I’m always like, “I should eat calzones every week. Every single week.” Whenever I’m stumped for what to cook for dinner my immediate response should be to make calzones. You would think that this is a normal reaction for me. That isn’t the case, though, and I end up never making them. Which is sad, because a life without calzones is a life I don’t really want to live. It’s okay because whenever I do get to making calzones, it’s literally the best day ever. The best week ever. I’ll end up cooking up a lot more than I should, and keep them in the fridge for the week. If I want to enjoy them over a longer period of time, I’ll pop them in the freezer and just reheat whenever I’m craving a hot cheesy calzone. They make for great lunches or easy dinners or midnight snacks. Just serve them with a salad on the side, and then they instantly become healthy. That’s how it works, right? I’m almost positive that I’m doing this whole healthy New Year New Me thing right. It’s the only way to do it.
My favorite calzone will always be a simple pepperoni calzone. They get me every time. I wanted to branch out a bit for this post however, and pretend that I’m more sophisticated than I actually am, even if it’s just for a moment. These are filled with many of the great Mediterranean flavors we all know and love. Chicken, artichokes, spinach, sun-dried tomato and feta. If you so wish, you could take them a step further and add olives to them. And because there really isn’t a sauce in these calzones, I thought it would be the best idea to drench them in tzatziki sauce. It’s a cool and creamy cucumber sauce that is loaded with so much flavor, it’ll knock your socks off. No more socks. Cold feet for life. You could also serve them with hummus (just saying).
If you’re in need of even more calzone deliciousness, remember that time we made two kinds of calzones on the blog? Of course you remember, you would be crazy not to. There’s a BBQ Chicken Calzone and a Sausage and Peppers Calzone for you to try. Now that you have three different calzones to eat, there’s no excuse. Get your life together and start eating all the portable pizzas you’re destined to eat. I’m rooting for you.
