You can create your own fillings for this very easy calzone. I don't use the pepperoni, but substitute cooked, chopped spinach. You can also add sauteed onions and peppers, olives, ricotta cheese...etc. I have also made small individual calzones to dip in Marinara Sauce...heaven! Kids love these.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place water, salt, basil, oregano, garlic powder, bread flour, dry milk, sugar, and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
  2. Select Dough cycle.
  3. After cycle ends, roll out dough on a lightly floured surface, shaping into a 16 x 10 inch rectangle.
  4. Transfer to a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together chopped pepperoni and mozzarella.
  6. Spoon pizza sauce in a stripe down the center of dough lengthwise; add sausage and cheese filling.
  7. Make diagonal cuts 1 1/2 inches apart down each side, cutting within a 1/2 inch of the filling.
  8. Criss cross strips over filling, sealing with water.
  9. Brush top with melted butter.
  10. You can just fold over the sides without cutting the strips to make this process easier.
  11. It will taste just as good, but not look as nice.
  12. Be sure to seal the edges well.
  13. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 45 minutes.

I made this last night for supper for the family last night. My family loved it. Since I don't have a bread machine I mixed the dough and let the dough raise in a bowl covered with a cloth and then punched it down and let it raise the second time. I followed the rest of the recipe. It was delicious.
