 Ingredients List

  • 1 pound pizza dough homemade or store bought
  • 8 ounces Italian sausage casings removed
  • 3/4 cup bell peppers cut into thin strips, you can use any color you like
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni
  • 1 cup pizza sauce divided use
  • 8 ounce package Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a sheet pan with cooking spray.
Divide the pizza dough into 3 or 4 pieces, depending on the size you want your calzones.
Roll the dough into 1/4 inch thick ovals or rectangles.
Place the sausage in a pan and cook according to package directions. Use a spatula to break up the cooked sausage into bite sized pieces.
Add the bell peppers to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened.
Spread 2 teaspoons of pizza sauce onto one side of each piece of dough. Top with 1/4 cup cheese.
Divide the sausage and pepper mixture evenly on top of the sauce. Top with pepperoni and an additional 1/4 cup of cheese.
Fold the dough over and pinch to seal the edges. Use a sharp knife to cut 2-3 slits into the top of each calzone.
Brush each calzone with the beaten egg.
Place the calzones on the sheet pan. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.
Top with parsley, then serve immediately with remaining pizza sauce for dipping.
