Hey everybody. I made the best calzones Friday night. Although they are somewhat fattening compared to what we should be eating. Yikes! They are so good and I think that it's ok to splurge once in a while. So, here's the recipe:
1 medium white onion
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 large white mushrooms
dash of salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. fresh oregano, finely chopped (dried is ok too)
1/2 lb. turkey sausage
1 package Pillsbury Pizza Dough (by the biscuits in the store)
1 6 oz. can of italian seasoned tomato paste
1/2 tsp. water
In a skillet, sautee onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers until soft, about 25 minutes on medium high heat.
In separate pan, brown the sausage, add oregano.
Add sausage to veggies, add salt, pepper, and tomato paste. Mix altogether.
On Baking Pan, lay pizza dough out flat, spread out a little bit. Cut in half short way, so you'll have two pieces. Place half of filling on one end of each piece of dough. Fold other side other and crimp edges, you want all edges to be sealed to prevent leakage...hehe.
In bowl make egg wash (egg and 1/2 tsp. water), beat together. Brush egg wash onto tops of calzones.
Place pan in a 400 degree oven. The pizza dough package says to cook the dough for about 8 minutes, but it usually takes about 12-14 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
That's it. Makes two calzones that usually feed about 4.
Hope you enjoy and remember it's ok to splurge once in a while, as long as you don't go too overboard (i.e. eating a whole calzone by yourself!) Hehe... BYE!
