Calzone toronto

The Best Calzone in Toronto

The best calzone in Toronto are Italy’s oozey pockets stuffed with cheese and ham. If your first introduction to this Neapolitan turnover were the corrupt, though admittedly delicious, microwave spinoffs like Pizza Pockets, now’s the time to taste this folded pizza in all its half-moon glory. 

Here’s the best calzone in Toronto.

When craving pizza in slices or gooey, folded form, this little house on Clinton always pulls through, just like the cheese. Their pockets are pre-made with cheese and tomato sauce, then fried. Orders come with the option of tomato sauce on the side for those obligatory calzone dips.

Get your deep-fried calzone in two sizes. The small, $16, is large enough to feed up to two people while the large ($23) could probably satisfy at least three. Additional toppings include sausage, honey ham and pineapple.

There are three types of calzoni at this family-run spot in Kensington and they’re all massive. Twelve-inch pizzas are folded over and baked in their Moretti pizza oven before a brushing of olive oil and a healthy grating of parmesan on top.
