Review: These calzones are sinfully delicious. A buttery, flaky crust is wrapped around fillings laced with gooey melted cheese. The calzones are too high in fat and calories to be a regular addition to my diet. But as an occasional treat, they can't be beat. The Santa Fe Black Bean was a mildly spiced delight with beans, corn and peppers. The Classic Italian Style offered ham, Genoa salami and pepperoni. Other flavors include Smoked Ham and Cheddar and Thai Peanut Chicken Recipe.
