What's the typical bake time around here for a Neapolitan calzone?

Thanks, Peter. I have clipped the recipe for "White Bean and Caramelized Onion" calzone. Something about that called out to me.

Most calzone aficiando suggest some slits or holes in the dough top to release steam while cooking. Pizza dough should be lower hydration to prevent too many air bubbles in the dough.

I had some leftover dough - Tartine bread and American pizza - so I combined them to make a dough ball for the White Bean and Caramelized onion. It made a big ole bomb of a calzone. I usually make them individual-sized.

It was a big hit. Only photo:
