Calzone Pizzas
 
Has anyone got experience with cooking Calzone in a WFO?

We had one at a restaurant recently, which wasn't really very good, so of course I've been wondering how to do better...

Specifically, how hot can the oven be maximum? Most recipes say about 200 C (400 F) for half an hour - but thats for wimpy old regular ovens. Could it also be baked hotter for a shorter time?

Thank you for any advice :)

Frances,

Here's my rule of thumb for breads and things like Calzone: take the recipe as written for a home oven, then bake at 500 F on the hearth for half the time. I usually place calzone near the oven mouth where it's a bit cooler to prevent scorching and guarantee a full bake. Have a look at PizzaMaking.com - Pizza Making, Pizza Recipes, and More! for calzone recipes. It's a highly opinionated group, but a great resource.

I love calzones. This is something I've been wondering as well. Thanks for the link!

Sometimes I cook pizza the day after firing my oven. The retained heat alone is enough to do so.

(About 375-400.) 12-13 hours later.

They take longer, and aren't like high-heat pies.

But still good.

I bet a Calzone would bake perfectly the next day!

I especially enjoy mine with some Ricotta inside!
YUM

I love breakfast calzones
The next morning after a pizza bake, there is nothing like taking a few leftover doughs and putting wet cooked eggs, cheese, meat, salsa or whatever in and let them go. Good eats!

Now that's a great idea.

I didn't think about breakfast!!

Wow! Awesome pics! Makes me hungry just looking at them! Stromboli is a volcano island off of Sicily. Which of the pics depicts that baked delight... the first or second?
