I don't see the roll in the stromboli. Personally I like calzones with meat and cheese but it's probably because I've yet to have a good stromboli.


I didn't even know there was a difference it all looks the same from the outside.

Tell us the story of those coffee cups in the bottom photo.


True, Carol. This one wasn't rolled like a jelly roll, but the crust was very thin and not the main part of the meal-the filling was.
The calzone is more crust of the item, Bill. Plus, you never see Ricotta inside a stromboli.
Good Morning Mr. B. The cups are from the Stromboli restaurant, where mom and dad got engaged. More than 60 years ago now... made in Newcastle, PA. Those were the cups on the dinner table when we grew up.

I've always wondered about the differences. Guess I have to try some of the strombolis around here to see what they're like.


Come to think of it, the last stromboli I had was in Philly and it wasn't rolled either. And it had feta cheese in it, which I thought was weird, dry too.


Thanks for the explaining the difference between a stromboli and a calzone. I'll admit that I'll probably stick with "regular" pizza!

I have a doctor's appointment coming up, and what do you know - it's around lunch time! I think I'll just walk over here.

That doesn't look like any stromboli I've had. For me, a stromboli is filled with mozzarella, tomato sauce and other stuff (pepperoni, etc). A calzone is filled with mozzarella, ricotta, ham, and other meats. The stromboli's interior is partially visible, the calzone is completely closed. Now what you ate was probably good, but it sure wasn't a stromboli.


Rsearch, will be doing research.

OK Carol. Maybe the definition has stretched over the years. About 180°...Feta...

It's not as close to the Zion Kaiser, as it is to the other main building, Sandy, but the walk will help you...Thrive :)

HM, PJ...I never have had one with tomato sauce on the interior. I'll have to do more research! Welcome to the commenting side of our blog.
