  1. I read the recipe and really seems easy to prepare; I put scheduled for tomorrow evening.
    I would like to know if it is better to use the static mode of the oven or the breezy. There are differences in cooking?

    1. hello Annaluisa, thanks for writing me. There is not much difference between a pizza in a convection oven and baked in a convection oven. Pizza is one of those things that goes absolutely cooked in an oven at 300 degrees abundant. The oven heats up well, open quickly, include your pizza and quickly shut the door. Do not let yourself be taken by the curiosity and open the oven door during the baking your calzone. Simply look from the glass, when it will be perfectly golden, churns. You risk that if you lower the temperature of the oven during cooking, the calzone will deflate. Good to eat, but ugly to see. good job. Silvio.
