Pizza vs. Calzone: Which One is Better?

One argument that’s generated a fair amount of contention in recent years is whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza or not. Which, spoiler alert, it does. But another argument that not many people discuss is the one in which the virtues of the pizza are leveled against those of the calzone. So, which one is better? You can get both at Bogey’s sports pub, so in order to get to the bottom of this matter, we’ll have to examine the differences between each.

Pizza and calzones are very similar to one another, and this can be attributed to the fact that they share almost identical ingredients. They’re both made from dough, baked, and have cheese and marinara sauce, and also utilize the same ingredients for toppings to establish and accentuate the flavor. However, while the pizza is well known and instantly identifiable to just about anyone, the calzone is slightly different. In simple terms, the pizza is a flatbread, whereas the calzone is more akin to a sandwich. While the ingredients are virtually identical, the presentation is comparable to night and day.

Health vs. Flavor

With a close similarity in ingredients and a slight difference in terms of preparation and presentation, we now have to take a closer look at which one has better attributes. This isn’t as easy as you might think. One advantage that the pizza has is that it can be prepared to lower carbs. With a thin crust and cauliflower substitutions, pizza has been a favorite of many individuals on a diet. The calzone, on the other hand, has the advantage of being more filling and versatile in terms of ingredients that might not be conventional on a regular pizza. While you can stock up on the healthy ingredients in a calzone, there’s little you can do about the number of carbs you’ll intake because of the amount of dough that’s used. That said, Calzones tend to hold more flavor in and insulate the temperature of the other ingredients much better than a pizza can.
