Valerie’s Amazing Sausage Calzone – Recipe

Sausage Calzone

Ingredients:

Store Bought Pillsbury Pizza Dough (or make your own)

5 Oz of Pizza Cheese

1 lb of Sausage

5 Oz of Pepperoni

1 Organic sweet Onion, Chopped

3 Cloves of organic Garlic

1 Tbsp of organic Fresh Basil (or 1 tsp Dry)

1 tsp of organic Oregano

1.5 Cup of organic Frozen Spinach

1 Jar of Pizza Sauce

OR (FOR HOMEMADE SAUCE)

1 14 Oz Can of organic Crushed Tomatoes

1 tsp of Onion Powder

1 tsp of organic Oregano

1/2 tsp of Salt

1 Tbsp of Olive Oil

2 organic Garlic Cloves

1 Tbsp of organic Fresh Basil or (1 tsp Dry)

Directions:

Start it off by cooking up your sausage. When your sausage is nearly cooked, add in the pepperoni and cook it up for a minute or two more until all the meat is cooked through. Drain off the fat.

Now add in the garlic, basil, oregano, and onion and let it all heat up for a good two to three minutes. Finally, add in your frozen spinach and let it cook up and get hot. Remove the mixture from heat.

Grab your dough ball, rip a good sized piece off and roll it out about 1/4 thick. Grab your filling and spoon in a few decent sized spoonfuls. Be sure to leave enough room to fold it over and seal up your edges.

Fold the dough over your topping and seal the edges up. I rolled my edges into the top to seal it up. Be sure to cut a few slits in the top of calzone so that steam can release as it cooks in the oven. And this is optional, but I also brushed some egg white on the tops of these beauties to help them get a nice golden brown color in the oven.

Throw them in a preheated oven set to 425 for 15-20 minutes or until the top is a nice golden brown. I cooked mine on a preheated pizza stone to ensure the bottom had a nice, crispy crust.

For your sauce:

Add to your saucepan the tomatoes, onion powder, oregano, salt, olive oil, garlic and basil. Stir it all together and let it heat up.
