calzone shells

Our Calzone Shells can be held frozen for up to one year and refrigerated for up to 2 days. Individual shells can be thawed in a matter of a few minutes. Rizzuto Calzone shells are 11" in diameter and designed to bake into a crisper shell as opposed to an overly bready shell. Oftentimes a common pizza or bread dough is used in making calzones and cannot compare to the traditional calzone formulation that we use in producing this shell

  3. Spread 1/2 (3 oz.) of your cheese on 1/2 of the sauced shell.
  4. Place topping on top of the cheese and then add the remainder of the cheese
  5. Using the parchment paper, pull the portion of the shell with no toppings over the topped portion.
