Sausage Pepperoni Peppers Mushroom Calzone Recipe



These are our most favorite game day foods or for all and any occassions. Perfect stuffed breads for all your family and party needs. These stuffed breads are filled with our favorites, sauteed sausage, peppers, mushrooms and pepperoni. You can tailor these to your family favorite pizza toppings and use what you like to fill these with. I will give you a list of suggestions below.

The cheese oozing out of these is the best part
for me, the more cheese the happier I am! The meat enhances the flavors from the oils it secretes.

Sausage Pepperoni Peppers Mushroom Calzones

Make your own dough or use store bought click here for my recipe
I used 1 pound for each calzone.

Filling (Double for two calzones):
1 pepper sliced into thin strips
1 8oz package mushrooms
1 pound sausage loose cooked
8 slices of pepperoni 
1 clove minced garlic
8 slices mozzarella cheese
4 slices provolone cheese
olive oil
grating cheese
black pepper

Saute the sausage in 2 tablespoons olive oil until the pink is gone. Add the peppers and garlic cook 1 more minute. Drain oil.

Roll out the first dough to 1/4 inch thick but not too thin so your filling doesn't seep through.
Add half the cheese on the bottom, sausage filling and then pepperoni and more cheese on top. Drizzle the dough with olive oil. Sprinkle  tops of dough with grating cheese, garlic minced and freshly ground pepper. Bake in a hot oven of 400 degree until browned on top.

Optional filling ingredients: chopped onions, chopped olives, hot peppers, crushed meatballs, ham and pineapple, shrimp, thinly shaved eggplant, fresh spinach, tuna, chopped tomatoes, sliced zucchini, chopped broccoli, shredded cheddar.

Use the combinations of vegetables and meat you like together for the filling. Basically meats,vegetables and cheeses holds it together.

  1. Wow these are beautiful. Aren't calzones the greatest thing. I like making a veggie one for me and a meat filled on for Chris. Like the idea of sprinkling the cheese on top!
