Vegetarian Bolognese Calzone/Vegetarian Ragu Alla Bolognese Calzone

Calzone is an Italian baked folded pizza which have its origin from Naples, Italy. A typical calzone is made with a yeasted bread dough, baked in oven stuffed usually with meats and cheese. However many variations of calzone do exists with different stuffings. Though some small calzones are fried in olive oil, baking calzone is quite popular. Calzone dough ressembles as much as like pizza dough however many recipes of calzone are prepared with usual pizza dough. Calzones are usually stuffed with cheeses like ricotta, mozzerella, parmesan and else with local cheese. My today's calzone goes for a vegetarian version, which makes a prefect meal when served along with some salads or else for an evening snacks with a cup of tea of coffee. You have numerous choice to serve and enjoy this ultimate calzone.
