Sausage and Sweet Pepper Calzones

Rate this Recipe

Serves 4 | 

These calzones are incredibly delicious and easy to make.

Ingredients:

1 lb Italian sausage, removed from the casing
1 onion, peeled and julienned
1 green bell pepper, seeded and julienned
1 red bell pepper, seeded and julienned
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
8 oz ricotta cheese
8 oz grated Mozzarella cheese
8 oz grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 individual pizza dough rounds, 6-inch each
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Bring a saute pan to medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the sausage and brown, cook for 6-8 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat, drain and cool completely. Bring another saute pan to medium heat, add the remaining oil. Add the onions and peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and remove from the heat. Cool completely.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the sausage, onion-pepper mixture, cheeses and crushed red pepper. Mix well. Season with salt.
  5. Using a fork, dock each round of pizza dough. Divide the mixture into fourths and place in the center of each round of dough. Fold one end of the dough over the other, forming a half-moon shape. Using a fork or your fingers press the ends together, sealing the calzones completely.
  6. Place the calzones on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
