    ...having the immediate area around you, not to mention your face, looking like an outtake from Cannibal Holocaust?

    These things are MESSY, I just had one and I looked like a zombie from Dawn of the Dead afterward, i've never been able to eat one without all of it "contents" spilling out all over the place! [​IMG]

    Is there some method that i'm missing on how to eat these things a little more neatly without looking like a lion tearing apart a deer on the Discovery Channel?

    I love em' but geez.

    Really? I didn't think of that. [​IMG] I guess what i'm asking is how do you keep all of the stuff from oozing out of it once you cut it up?

    I must have had at least 100 Stromboli's in my life and I can never eat one without making a mess and I know there's a way. [​IMG]

    A stromboli is a kind of stuffed pizza.

    You're not supposed to eat it neatly.

    Use a plate along with your fork and knife. Cut gently into it and don't apply too much pressure.

    Stromboli's are so good.. done right that is.

    Yep except most calizones use a ranch type dressing inside(all the ones I've had). I usually have them put pizza sauce instead anyway [​IMG]

    Yep, a Stromboli is merely a pizza that has been folded over onto itself, the edges sealed and then baked...awesome! [​IMG] The place where I buy my Stromboli's also have Calzone's but they use ricotta cheese in it...YUCK! [​IMG]

    Thanks, Shane, i've tried that but it still runs all over, i'm beginning to suspect that perhaps these things are inherantly messy and that my quest for neatness is futile. [​IMG]

    Ranch dressing on a calzone?! What goes ON outside NYC?!?

    And ricotta is THE indispensable guts of a calzone!

    O Maronn'!

    ...and it's "inherently."

    Same here. I've heard of a lot of different variety of stuffings for a stromboli/calzone, but not ranch dressing.

    I always thought it was just one of those regional dialect words where different words describe the exact same thing (like "pop" vs. "soda").

    And, yes, with a knife and fork is the civilized way to eat them.

    Not only have I not heard about Ranch dressing in a calzone (Ricotta is what you use), but Ranch dressing in a calzone sounds very disturbing!

    I've only had calzones from these guys a couple times, but I think they give you a choice for dipping: marinara sauce or ranch dressing: D.P. Dough

    Maybe Shane was talking about dipping, because ranch dressing inside of a calzone does sound weird. Those Oklahomans...:p)

    Let's all hope! [​IMG] because I just don't want to imagine what warm/baked Ranch dressing tastes like.
