DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven and pizza stone (if available) to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large grill plan, cook sausage until browned. Drain.
  • In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, seasonings, pepperoni and cooked sausage. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  • Roll dough out to a 15" circle on a pizza paddle or baking sheet that has been lightly dusted with cornmeal. It doesn't have to be a perfect circle.
  • Spread meat and cheese filling over 1 side of the dough. Leave at least 1-inch of the edge without filling to ensure a tight seal.
  • Lift 1 side of dough and fold over so that it meets the other side, forming a half moon, and pinch the edges together to seal, using a fork to press edges together. Remove any excess dough which isn't needed for the seal.
  • Brush with olive oil and sprinkle some parmesan cheese over top.
  • Cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to release.
  • Transfer calzone from pizza pad to pizza stone in oven.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes, until puffed up golden brown.
  • Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • Heat the marinara sauce in the microwave for dipping.
