This is an easy and tasty recipe to make Cabbage Calzones—Italian-style turnovers. A calzone is similar to a pizza, but the difference is that the toppings are on the inside of the dough instead of on top. This keeps the filling moist and prevents it from drying out. In Eastern Europe, it’s also known as Chebureki.

These calzones are fried which makes them extra crispy. The filling consists of a flavorful mixture of cabbage and onion. It’s the perfect vegetarian snackfluffy, full of flavor, and rich in vegetables. You can also customize the recipe as you want.

Tips

Make sure to use an oil suitable for deep frying. These include canola, peanut, sunflower, corn oil, and more. If you want to reuse the oil, allow it to cool, and strain it. You can use it a few times if you plan to make more calzones soon.

Keep the oil on medium heat, otherwise, the dough will burn on the outside without being completely cooked through. Use a thermometer to heat the oil to about 350°F.

Cabbage Calzone Variations

For the dough, use store-bought bread dough, pizza dough, or even tortillas.

For the filling:

  • Mushroom and cabbage: sauté mushrooms with cabbage and use for a filling.
  • Salami: saute chopped red peppers, mushrooms, cabbage
  • Corned beef: sauté chopped corned beef with the cabbage, then use as a filling.
  • Vegetarian: feta cheese, tomato paste, cabbage, and sweetcorn.
  • Spinach and feta: fill the calzones with wilted spinach and feta.

How To Store Cabbage Calzone

Store the cabbage calzones in the fridge (in an airtight container) for up to 3 days. They will lose some of their crispiness with time.

To make Cabbage Calzones ahead of time, wrap them (unbaked) in plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Bake before serving.
