On most Wednesday nights I like to do something fun for dinner,
and that usually means calzones.


Start out with PIZZA DOUGH.
You can make your own, buy some from the grocery store or you can
even buy some from your favorite pizzeria. 

I usually make my own and have a GREAT recipe that you can find HERE.

To make individual calzones, you need to divide the dough into TWO pieces,
OR even FOUR pieces and roll the dough out flat...

Spread some ricotta cheese down the middle, followed by YOUR 
favorite toppings.  I love pepperoni...

My Colonel loves cooked sausage and peppers and onions on his calzone.
I always have a container of sauce with meatballs and sausage in my refrigerator.
And it's easy to take out a few pieces of sausage, cut them up and add them to a calzone.

Cover with mozzarella cheese and fold one end over...

Now fold one side over and then bring the other side up and tuck in the ends...

Place the calzones on a tray that is lined with parchment paper 
and allow them to rise for another hour...

Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley.
Bake in a HOT 435 degree oven until they are golden brown...

Slice and serve with some warmed sauce on the side for dipping...

Enjoy your day!
