The word calzone means ‘stocking’ or ‘trouser’ in Italian (with the plural calzoni translating as ‘trousers’), as the folded pastry is supposed to look like a folded pair of pantaloons! Here the calzoni are filled with tomato, ricotta cheese and salami, but you can vary the filling according to your personal taste or the season - try experimenting with whatever ingredients you happen to have in your refrigerator. This recipe is from the bustling city of Naples and is now a worldwide classic, featuring on many Italian restaurant menus.
