Original recipe yields 2 calzones



  1. Cook sausage links according to package directions; drain, cut into 1/2-inch slices and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine mozzarella, ricotta, egg, parsley and seasonings.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, cut dough in half. Roll each into a 12-inch circle. On two parchment-lined baking sheets, carefully place one dough round on each baking sheet.
  4. Spoon 1/2 cup of pizza sauce, half the cheese mixture and half of the sausage slices onto the lower half of each dough round, keep the outer 1/2-inch of dough free of ingredients. With a pastry brush, moisten the outer 1/2-inch of each round with water. Fold dough over filling and crimp edges firmly to seal.
  5. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cut each Calzone in half and serve with remaining pizza sauce.

This was my first attempt at making calzones and I'm pleased to say that it was a huge success! Before I mention my tweeks, I'd like to review the hot Italian Johnsonville Ground Sausage. It was absolutely delicious! No greasiness and very generous with the grind, not too fine. I had three of my teachers do a taste test and they all agreed that the Johnsonville sausage was superior to othe sausages. They all had heard and/or used the brand. My tweeks for personal preference only: generously doubled the spices, used my homemade sourdough pizza dough, used our favorite Exquisite Pizza Sauce (AR)and added fontina cheese to the mix. Served sauce on the side for dipping. Excellent! Will make again.

These were tasty! I browned off some Mild Johnsonville Ground Sausage, made my own dough (I used the Garlic Lover's Pizza Dough for the Bread Machine recipe - also from this site), and also made the Exquisite Pizza Sauce recipe from this site for the sauce. Served them with a nice tossed salad for a great Friday night dinner!



I used mild Italian Johnsonville sausage and it gave this just enough spice. This would be great with a variety of fillings. Delicious!
