Sausage and Pepperoni Cheese Stuffed Calzone

"This is a great, tasty big calzone! I used one can of Pillsbury pizza dough (about 13.5 ounces) which is a great way to make this calzone quickly. I made one large calzone which was divided to serve two people."

directions

  • Preheat oven and pizza stone (if available) to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large grill plan, cook sausage until browned. Drain.
  • In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, seasonings, pepperoni and cooked sausage. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  • Roll dough out to a 15" circle on a pizza paddle or baking sheet that has been lightly dusted with cornmeal. It doesn't have to be a perfect circle.
  • Spread meat and cheese filling over 1 side of the dough. Leave at least 1-inch of the edge without filling to ensure a tight seal.
  • Lift 1 side of dough and fold over so that it meets the other side, forming a half moon, and pinch the edges together to seal, using a fork to press edges together. Remove any excess dough which isn't needed for the seal.
  • Brush with olive oil and sprinkle some parmesan cheese over top.
  • Cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to release.
  • Transfer calzone from pizza pad to pizza stone in oven.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes, until puffed up golden brown.
  • Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • Heat the marinara sauce in the microwave for dipping.

    Wow! This recipe is absolutely amazing! I changed the mozzarella to a 5 cheese Italian mix and the sausage to Italian sausage. Thank you so much for sharing this. My husband said it was the BEST thing anyone has EVER cooked for him..and hes a very picky, hard to please eater! I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Here's a big plus-IT'S QUICK AND EASY!!!!!!

    My family loved it. Subbed cottage cheese for the ricotta. Delish!

    WARNING! this recipe is horrible. Tried it and hated it. Was embarrased to serve it. Nothing was good about it.

    Awesome. I only used half of the mozzarella cheese (trying to reduce calories a bit) and I divided the dough to make several smaller pies. I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta (just a personal preference) I was wild about the filling; I think it was the creaminess added by the cottage cheese. My husband even said twice how good this was, and that does not happen very often! This is absolutely a keeper.
