How big is a calzone pizza?

Chef's answer
If you've never had a calzone, the easiest way to describe it is to make a pizza but only put the stuff on one half of it, fold it over like a half-moon and bake it. You can make them as small as hand-sized (some call them Panzarottis) and as big as 20? in length.Apr 7, 2014

    Calzones aren't exactly healthy food, especially if they are stuffed with meat and large amounts of cheese. A calzone typically uses the same amount of pizza dough as a pizza crust and is meant to serve four people. Eating a whole calzone yourself can mean eating more than your recommended calories for the day.
