Have you ever had a calzone? They’re delicious! Think pizza folded in half. Only instead of your typical pizza toppings, calzones doesn’t have a sauce, and are filled with a cheesy, pizza topping mixture. The crust gets nice and crusty on the outside, and the cheese turns delightfully molten on the inside (don’t burn yourself!). Dip it in a marinara sauce, and you might even consider swearing off “normal” pizza for good.
First, make up your dough and let it rise.
While it’s rising, make your filling. Brown the sausage, dice the pepperoni, shred the cheese, mix it all together.
After the dough is done, punch it down and divide it into two. On a floured surface, roll out each half. Cover one half of the dough with half of the filling, leaving a border around the edge.
Fold the other side over the top, and brush with egg wash (a beaten egg+a Tbs. water).
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with a hearty side of marinara sauce.
This recipe is a winner and is a fun twist on traditional pizza. Give it a try!
