3:00 AM, Saturday, back from a long night out and hungry.
Some people crave Insomnia. They want warm, chocolatey cookies and cold refreshing milk.
I respect that. But that's not me. I want something savory - something cheesy and crispy.
I want to open up that little box and pull apart those doughy blocks to reveal that beautiful, beautiful cheese-filled inside.
Oh god, yes.
Eating a calzone, in my opinion, is both a sensual and an exceedingly personal experience - one that brings us just a bit closer to the Divine. The world is imperfect, but the calzone stands alone as a platonic form - that square will never be a perfect square at the microscopic level, but the zone in your hand will, any way you slice it, always be a zone.
Wrap me in those threads of melty mozzarella.
Shovel marinara straight into my mouth.
Fill me with solid blocks of cheese.
I need some D.P. Dough.
You may say that the vast majority of readers probably aren't quite ready to guzzle that melty cheese straight from its doughy, calzone prison - but most of us aren't ready to be functioning adults pursuing our education and yet here we are so maybe you should just calm down and take a trip down Storrs Road with me and see for yourself what all this hype I just made is all about.
They've all got your favorite Zones:
Listen, you already know calzones are great. But we here at Spoon University did some research to make sure you know exactly how good they are. Yes, we have charts.Of the classic zones, the cheese zone dominates the polls.
The favorite veggie zone tends to be the pesto zone, followed closely by the spinner zone.
When it comes to chicken zones, the BBQ Chicken Zone and Buffer Zone win out.
Out of Storrs zones, the favorite is, of course, the Mac Daddy Zone (anyone remember the Mac and Cheese Kid?).
Among steak zones, the BBQ Steak Zone reigns supreme.
Finally, fans of meaty zones tend to prefer the cheeseburger zone.
So, why not go out and get yourself a zone?
Zones are Customizable
D.P. Dough lets you choose your crust and your sauce. You can get Parmesan garlic, Italian, garlic, Parmesan and Parmesan Italian flavors baked into your crust, as well as a wide range of sauces beyond the typical, boring old marinara. The HungryHuskies interface makes it easy to demand your cheesy, greasy prize just the way you like it, no matter how tired, inebriated and/or unwilling to leave your dorm you are.
Take Advantage of Deals:
Besides the $5 calzone of the day, D.P. dough offers frequent deals that make the occasional pocket of melty goodness available to even the most broke of college students. Check their website and social media accounts or stop by D.P. Dough itself.
Open Crazy Late:
It's like 1:30 AM right now and I'm about to bite into like a solid inch of melted cheese while I study for my midterm. Need I say more? Who else will sell you a calzone till 3:00? Probably not too many places.
Not Just Zones:
While I do love the zones they're famous for (and I'm sure this article is making you hungry for one), sometimes you just want something else. People craving something sweet at D.P. Dough can get an Oreo zone or cinnamon sticks, while those looking for something less calzone-like can give their wings or pesto sticks a try. They have a pretty diverse menu for all your cheesy needs.
