What is the Difference between a Calzone and a Stromboli?

The main difference between a calzone and a stromboli is the shape. They are both made with pizza dough but stromboli is larger and longer.

A calzone is usually shaped into small or medium size circle. See Stromboli vs Calzone for more tips.

Is Pizza Dough the Same as Calzone Dough?

Yes, you use the same dough to make a homemade pizza as you do a calzone. Calzone is like a stuffed pizza.

Ingredients needed, pizza dough, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, oil, garlic salt

Ingredients: 

  • Pre-made Pizza Dough (13.8 ounces) 
  • Pizza Sauce 
  • Mozzarella Cheese (shredded) 
  • Sliced Pepperoni 
  • Avocado Oil 
  • Garlic Salt 

How to Make a Calzone on a Blackstone Griddle: 

  • Step 1 – Divide the pizza dough into 2 equal pieces. 
  • Step 2 – Roll out 1 of the pieces of the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Step 3 – Spread half of the pizza sauce on 1 side of the dough.  Then layer half of the sliced pepperonis and half of the shredded cheese on top (just on half of the dough). 
  • Step 4 – Carefully fold the pizza dough on top of the toppings and pitch the dough with the bottom half of the pizza dough to make a half moon shape. 
  • Step 5 – Follow the process with the remaining dough and ingredients to prepare 2 calzones. 
  • Step 6 – Preheat the Blackstone Grill over low heat (approximately 300 degrees F). Spread the avocado oil or olive oil evenly onto the grill. 
  • Step 7 – Sprinkle some garlic salt on top of the oil on the grill and then place the prepared calzones on top. 
  • Step 8 – Watch the calzones closely as they cook.  Flip them every 30 seconds to 1 minute so that they do not get too browned. 
  • Step 9 – Continue to rotate and flip them (closing the lid during the cook time) for 10-12 minutes until the calzone dough is cooked through and browned. 
  • Step 10 – Remove the calzones from the grill.  Let them sit for 10-15 minutes. 
  • Step 11 – Then they are ready to cut in half and enjoy.

Tips for Pizza Calzone Recipe:

  • Prepare Ingredients – When we make calzone, everyone gets to choose their favorite toppings. Prepare by placing the toppings in individual bowls and that way you can easily form a assembly line.
  • Prepare Dough – Prepare the dough by placing on a floured work surface.
  • Adding Ingredients – When adding in the ingredients make sure to not add to much. To much sauce can make the calzone soggy. You want to make sure you close the sides tight to prevent the calzone filling from coming out.
  • Crimp the Edges – Make sure to seal the edges tightly.
  • Flip the Calzone – Flip the calzone every 30 seconds to make sure that the calzone doesn’t burn. Cook the homemade calzone for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Change the Sauce – You can use marinara sauce, spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce to add to the calzone.
  • Blackstone Stromboli – You can easily make a stromboli with this recipe.
