Barbecue Chicken Calzone

Here's a quickie, kids, since I'm wicked busy. It's just a little something that I tossed together with the rest of the pizza dough that was leftover from the other calzones I made. I made some barbecue bacon shredded chicken and wrapped it up, as I have a wont to do. It was awesome. A little cheese is in there, although you can't see it. Is it technically a calzone? I say yes, although others will say no. But definitions are a weird thing and I want to know what you think. What makes a calzone a calzone?

Looks like a great calzone to me.
I could so have that for dinner.

The Duo Dishes said...

Def think a calzone must have cheese. It doesn't have to ooze cheese, but it has to include cheese. :) But where is the line between a savory empanada and a calzone? Perhaps it' sjust a size.

I like quick tasty food, not to mention if they are good looking too like this!

Jenn said...

As long as there's a little cheese, it's still a calzone. Looks good. I love how this the crust is.

Michele said...

Hehe! Were you talking about me? To me it's a calzone if it has ricotta, otherwise it's a stuffed bread. That's just what I know it to be. It doesn't matter because it looks yummy!

unconfidentialcook said...

Works for me--I love your calzones!

Hungry Dog said...

I don't think a calzone needs to have cheese...after all, there are cheese-less pizzas (sad though that idea is). I think a calzone just involves pizza dough being folded over some stuff. Bbq chicken, awesome.

Spryte said...

I don't know what makes a calzone a calzone... but I'll have one of those!

Bob said...

Dajana: Thanks!

Duo: I always thought empanadas were made with pie dough...? But yeah, I agree that cheese is key.

Angie, Jenn: Thanks!

Michele: Heh, you are one of the people I was referring too. ;) Not that it upsets me, reasonable people can disagree. I also had someone tell me once that if it's not a specific shape it's not a calzone. Which I think is just nuts.

unconfidentialcook: thanks!

Hungry Dog: That's how I've always defined it myself.

Spryte: Heh, thanks!

Dawn said...

Wicked!! lol
I hear that word so much around these parts.
Aren't calzones fun though?

girlichef said...

Technically...I don't know. But I say it's a calzone...it's yummy dough wrapped around yummy fillings in the "shape" of a calzone...YUM :D

Your calzone looks really tasty! Thanks for droppin by my blog.

Sasha said...

I don't think all calzones have to ooze with cheese. Your calzone looks pretty legitimate to me, and delicious too. : )gr

Definitely a calzone - pizza dough with a filling - you don't need even need cheese! This looks yummy - great for a fast dinner!

noble pig said...

That is seriously beautiful. I want it for a midnight snack.

Cathy said...

A rose by any other name is still a rose. And, by golly, that is a terrific looking calzone.

Wandering Coyote said...

Looks wicked good, man! Actually, this has given me an idea...Hmmmm...

Joanne said...

This is definitely a calzone. I like to think of calzones the way I think of pizza, which is to say that anything goes. I love the unique filling that you put in here. Sounds great.

thanks so much for commenting on and stopping by my blog! you've got some great food on here that I will be following.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Yes, I would call this a calzone. I would also call it delicious and steal the other half. :)

Donna-FFW said...

Bob, this sounds delicious. Think it would go down well with a cold beer.

Elra said...

Will definitely do some more research about this. It looks good to me though.

Barbara said...

Who cares? It looks great under any name!

Phoo-D said...

Looks like a delicious calzone to me! I love having leftover bbq chicken- there are so many great possibilities. Yum.

5 Star Foodie said...

I love the idea of bbq chicken filling for a calzone, no need for cheese either :)

Erica said...

I love the filling! Great recipe.

tamilyn said...

Simple but I'm tasting it in my mind---yum!

Being someone who's never even had a calzone, I don't know. I think it looks pretty tasty!

Danielle said...

drool! to me if its wrapped in pizza dough...it's a calzone!

Stacy said...

Yum! Looks great! And so convenient when you are on the go!

A Year on the Grill said...

yes it is a calzone (although I break all the rules about what is what, and still call it what it was kind of like)

DDpie said...

You're the artist, call it whatever you want...I call it tasty looking!!!

Culinary Alchemist said...

I call it delicious! After all, It has bacon.. :) But I would have to agree with Danielle, if it's wrapped in Pizza dough, then it's a calzone...
