The ingredients are for a plain filling. You can put in about any ingredient you would normally like in a calzone, but I personally like to add precooked sweet Italian sausage and a bit of sauteed broccoli. I like to buy my dough already made at my local Publix grocery. Serve it with pizza sauce on the side for dipping.
