Tony’s Pizza prides itself on offering authentic Italian dishes to a variety of NC locations. Our menu boasts many fan-favorites, from Brooklyn-style pizza and pasta to stromboli and, what we believe to be, the best calzone near me. For our first time customers, Tony’s would be delighted to make you one complete with your own unique combination of toppings.
Believe it or not, the Italian calzone creation translates to “pants legs,” oddly enough. The delightful food found its roots in Naples during the 1700s, designed as a pizza made for on-the-go activities, like walking around outside. The customary semi-circle shape began as the dish was originally a plain pizza folded in half. Gradually, calzones took on their own unique identity and separated from pizza.
Unlike the similar dish, Stromboli, which is characterized by a log-shaped rectangular design, calzones demonstrate a half-moon design. A traditional one is made of a mix of cheeses, often including ricotta, and a variety of toppings. Tony’s prefers to serve the sauce on the side, though. When you try the best calzone near me, you’ll see why it’s ideal for dipping! Stromboli, on the other hand, is made by baking the sauce with the other ingredients, which creates a different dish.
Regardless, calzones are always ideal for a quick bite in a rush. Stop by on a Tuesday to try our Stromboli or calzone special for an easy lunch break. Tony’s is sure to have a location near you, boasting six locations in Mooresville, Charlotte, Hickory, and Huntersville. If you’re in the Triad be sure to visit our sister restaurant, Mario’s Pizza, with locations in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Clemmons.
It would be a lie to say that pizza doesn’t hold the number one place in our hearts. But, we think calzones could take that spot for you. Below are five of the top reasons they take the cake:
If you’re looking for another ideal alternative to pizza, check out our Stromboli. These are made with more crust and sauce, and only mozzarella cheese. This makes Stromboli the perfect dish for those who aren’t fans of the ricotta found in calzones.
Along with a mouthwatering cheese blend, we stuff these tasty tidbits with one topping of your choice. Check out Tony’s wide range of topping options below!
Meat Lovers Toppings:
Many guests go for spinach, pepperoni, or mushrooms, but we’re sure to have an option that suits each person’s taste buds. After all, finding the best calzone near me means choosing the perfect fit for you!
