Carne Calzone from Bella Italia Review

Folded pizza with pomodoro sauce -Meatballs, beef ragu, pancetta, red onion and mozzarella

Carne Calzone Review

The lads were back at Bella Italia, the missuses had sent us out to buy some Christmas gifts for some relatives. Of course we had been given a list of exactly what to buy and from where. But the lads are nothing if not inventive and we decided to throw ourselves wholeheartedly into this task, but our real agenda was to Shop hard and see if we could save some money to enable a pizza purchase. After a couple of hours we were all shopped out, but our reward was that we had saved enough cash from our efforts for the Pizza treat.

So scanning through the menu at Bella’s we decided on one of three Calzone’s on offer, obviously the meaty one for us.

We didn’t have too long to wait for our Calzone to be served and it looked a treat with a lovely browned dough casing. It was good and hot as well. Digging in we appreciated the dough’s light texture and it tasted splendid. The Pomodoro sauce (tomato) had the taste of the sweetest tomatoes with a salty, garlic tinge. The fillings were Meatballs which were smallish and had a rich solid flavour and they combined well with the deep robust taste of the Beef Ragu. The Pancetta contrasted well and was lovely. It was enhanced with the addition of pretty strong red onion and packed with soft and creamy mozzarella.

So we were well pleased and it was a good offering and one we will would eat again. Getting home the missuses were suspicious that we had been indulging ourselves, but we had got what they wanted and with correct change, so a right result for the lads.

A massive thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

Meatball Feast Calzone Review

The Pizza Lads were having a Pizza policy business conference debate brainstorming session between themselves. Bill said that it is our duty to bring every aspect of the Pizza world to our followers eyes, and that we don’t seem to have done any Calzone reviews. Ted was disbelieving but it was true! So without further ado, we hurried off to rectify this situation. Now as our expert followers know, that a Calzone is basically a folded Pizza and according to Wikipedia, an interesting fact is that “In Italy, Calzones are popularly believed to be the most efficient type of Pizza for home delivery.

This popular credence has some scientific ground as the folded nature of the Calzone results in a lower surface-to-volume ratio than a traditional Pizza resulting in better heat retention during the journey from the Pizzeria to the buyer’s home. This results in a Calzone being delivered warmer than Pizza all things equal. Ohh Err, still makes sense and Ted remembers one notable Pizza chain delivery Pizza that ended up somehow folding itself into a Calzone and he reckoned it was all the better for it! Anyway were losing the plot. Off to Frankie and Benny’s we went as the big chains rarely offer Calzone. The offering looked like a huge Cornish pasty and with a nice charred bubbled look. The Dough was nice and chewy with a slightly crisp edge.

The Meatballs were fresh tasting and delicious with a hint of seasoning. The Pepperoni had a good bite but wasn’t overwhelming the other ingredients. The Chicken added a diverse twist and was tender. Red Onion, red Pepper, Mozzarella and BBQ sauce completed the line up, although we felt that the red Onion was not required really, but the red Pepper was lovely. The Cheese was pretty cheesy indeed and the BBQ sauce was smoky tasting. So a really nice dish and the overall combination was a winner..

A big “Calzone” thumbs up from The Pizza Lads
