A calzone is a traditional Italian oven-baked snack, which is often described as a folded pizza. Basically, a plain flour dough pocket holds delicious toppings, in some way comparable to our desi favourite, the samosa!
In this yummy and satiating calzone, the filling is a creamy, cheesy mixture of mushrooms and onions perked up with herbs and other seasonings.
The creamy mouth-feel of the stuffing really captivates your heart when you bite into the Mushroom Calzone!
