Neapolitan Calzone Recipe of of 22-03-2013 [Updated on 05-04-2019]

This morning I give you my recipe to prepare Neapolitan calzones, a preparation that in my family has never been made at home but that I wanted to experiment to expand even more the choice during the pizza evening. The calzone is a classic half-moon-shaped stuffed pizza from southern Italy, stuffed with ricotta and salami, in Naples the same preparation takes different names, if it is baked in the oven it takes the name of Neapolitan calzone, if the pizza is fried, it takes the name of fried pizza;) Now I greet you and I start my day trying to make her take a positive turn, Elisa is influenced, we have not rested well, I would have 1000 things to do, I wish to see such a beautiful day and to have to stay locked inside and I'm intractable. Okay, sorry for the little outburst, sometimes I forget that I hate complaining about nonsense, kiss and see you later; *
