Here is a recipe that I have used many times and love it………………easy to eat as you do not need a fork and knife; just a small bowl of pasta sauce to dip it in.
Mini Sausage Calzones
Preparation time: 25 min.
Cooking time: 15 min.
Ideal condiment: pizza sauce
1 pound frozen bread dough, thawed
8 ounces sweet Italian sausage
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup Italian-style tomato sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons milk
MAKES 8 CALZONES
Divide dough into 8 portions. Heat a large skillet over medium heat; add sausage. Cook until brown and crumbly; drain fat. Preheat oven to 425′ F. Grease a baking sheet.
Stir onion, garlic, basil, oregano, and tomato sauce into skillet; simmer for 10 minutes. Roll each dough piece into a 5-inch circle. Spoon sausage mixture onto each circle; sprinkle with cheeses.
Moisten edges of dough with water. Fold dough over to enclose filling; press to seal. Place on prepared baking sheet.
Beat egg with milk. Brush over calzones. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
If it is more convenient than you can prepare calzones as recipe directs and wrap individually in foil; freeze for up to 2 weeks. Thaw; reheat in a 325′ F oven for 10 minutes or until heated through.
The filling possibilities are endless-add 1/4 cup chopped black olives, chopped pepper or sun dried tomatoes.
