Any members have experience using pizza dough for calzones?  What type of filling combinations

This is a real crowd favorite:

Pepperoni, sundried tomato, chopped fresh tomato (very well strained),  fresh chopped rosemary, mozzarella.

You can also roll this into a stromobolii roll and garnish with wedges of fresh tomato pressed into the dough.  Makes a nice presentation. Sometimes I curve the roll into a horseshoe shape too. You can even pour the oil from the sundried tomatoes over the dough to create more of a fried dough stromboli.

Crusty,

My favorite involves some sliced ham, provy, riccotta, and lots of mozz! Here's a shot of my last calzone:

Calzone fritto

This is how a calzone fritto should look like.

It is filled only with ricotta and fior di latte. I did not have any Napoli's salami or even better cicoli, that is why I did not put them in.

Please look at the crumb, and how fluffy it is...

That looks delightfully un healthy :) Man, I've got so much stuff I want to try out, its going to take me a couple weeks to get through it all. A couple variations of DiFaras dough, and then PizzaBills stromboli.

Marco, is this your pizza dough, or do you use a different recipe for the fluffy crust?

Same dough

When I am home and cannot do it in a professional setting, I don't even try and bake my dough in an home oven. Thus I only mke fried pizza....

Fluffy when baked in a Neapolitan wood oven and fluffy when fried up....

 Filling as follows , Ricotta,Feta,or Cottage cheese is Ok, Ham cubes, Chopped Tomatoes                       
                             in cubes   use    Fresh Basil Leaves, Dry mix herbs/oregano/Praprika/salt and 
                             Pepper, This is what Pizza Herbs/spices is. All first pre-mix, Then finally
                             additional add Small amount of Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese
                              to enhance more cheesy Flavours and finally add Pepper and Salt before sealing dough
Yes, I try it with Pizza dough with the above filling after attending a calzone and Pizza making course. :)

Crusty, When I lived in Italy my wife and I ate Calzonne at our local Pizzaria at least twice a week. Over the years our favorite ingredients became sausage (bulk,spiced,chunks),mushrooms (fresh,sliced), and onions(sliced). The onions came out of a bowl full of olive oil so the inside of the calzonne was full of the juices from the ingredients and olive oil after baking. Talk about a flavor party!! We've not found any combo that comes close to what this trio offers the taste buds.

Enjoy,
DiamondMarco

Crusty,
Here are a couple of photographs from my calzone making effort tonight. Quattro Formaggio, sauce, pepperoni, Pizza Raquel formulary...

I would highly recommend using your favorite dough recipe and stuffing it with your favorite toppings. In many ways a good calzone has superior flavor than a pizza. There is something about splitting open a hot pocket full of flavor.

Diamond Marco,
I noticed you didn't list any cheese in your favorite calzone with the sausage, mushrooms and onions?
Was there cheese in that version?

Thanks!

pyegal,
Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

I have got to try my calzone recipe with sausage (Chorizo), onions (bathed in EVOO), and mushrooms with a quattro formaggio blend. I bet it is to die for. For my latest calzone, I borrowed from DC PM's exquisite version which puffs up and creates a hot cavernous pocket which I found to be more tasty than slitting the top and allowing the flavorful steam to escape.

My favorite is to just take a pizza, add mozz, ricotta, provolone, and some margherita pepperoni and fold it in half, have some pizza/marinara sauce  on the side.
