It's National Calzone Day (November 1) and yesterday I asked you for your recommendations "Who makes the best calzone in Boise/Treasure Valley!?".
When was the Calzone invented?
According to NationalToday.com it was in the 1700s "Calzones were invented in Naples, Italy - supposedly as a way to serve people a pizza they could walk around with".
There's something wonderful about someone evening having the idea to create a pizza that you could walk around with and enjoy. What other foods could we create to be more convenient for us to walk around with?
I can't remember the last time I had a calzone, but it's not because I don't like them. Calzones are delicious and I like to keep my calzone pretty simple. Come to think of it, I've never had my favorite pizza as a calzone. Hawaiian pizza with jalapeño sounds like an amazing calzone!
Random Calzone Facts:
- Calzones for the most part consist of the same amount of pizza dough as a regular pizza.

Angela sounds pretty very adamant that Guido's has the best Calzone, but will it be at the top of the list?
I know it's only the top 9 and I'm sure there are some amazing restaurants in the Treasure Valley produces some great calzones but this is completely based off of your input on our Facebook post.
