Yum! This was quick, easy, and super yummy. It's hard to please everyone... This is an everyone pleaser, kids, the husband, friends... And me. I used johnsonville hot sausage and added some crushed red pepper. Made it spicy, we like it spicy in this house. If you like it that way then I recommend adding those ;) it was awesome
These are really good and not hard to make. Made as written and got 16 calzones using two 1lb loaves of bread dough, though some were a little smaller than others (I didn't cut the dough very evenly) which worked out well so my little boys can eat a whole one. Made for PRMR April 2010.
So yummy, easy and not messy to make. I didn't have frozen bread dough but did have a package of crescent rolls. So I rolled out half of them to make a giant square on my pizza stone, filled with the filling, sealed and baked at 350 for 15 minutes. The filling tasted great with the crescent roll and I bet would taste equally great with bread dough. Tomorrow for breakfast same mix, another batch of crescent dough and some scrambled egg - sounds divine. Thanks for a great recipe we will use again and again.
