So Simple Sausage Calzone
This is so easy that you will be mad at yourself for spending ten dollars at the pizza place.
One pound of pizza dough
Two pounds of sausage. Take the sausage out of the casing.
I like the calzone really full but you can get away with less meat.
1/2 pound of mozzarella cheese
Three or four slices of provolone cheese
One large diced onion
Two tablespoons olive oil
Saute the onion in the oil till soft.
Add the sausage and break it up very well.
You want a crumbled consistency.
Cook till the sausage is well done.
Drain all the fat from the sausage and cool.
If you put it on the dough hot the dough will start to get soft and mushy.
Grease a 9 x 13 pan with a light layer of crisco.
Spread out your pizza dough to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep .
Add the sausage to form a long rectangle leaving about four inches of uncovered dough around meat.
Place the cheese over the sausage so it melts down into the meat.
Fold the dough over to form a sealed envelope.
Place in a 450 degree oven for about 18 to 20 minutes.
Check the calzone after ten minutes because every oven is different.
I have two ovens and both of them cook differently.
Make sure the bottom of the calzone is nice and crisp.
Serve this with a big salad or a cup of soup.
This serves about four big eaters.
