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 CalzonesMake 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
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.
