Ingredient List
For the Calzones:
  • 1 (13.8-ounce) tube refrigerated pizza dough
  • 8 ounces ground Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 8 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese
For the Egg Wash:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • Pizza sauce, for dipping, optional
To make the calzones
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Open the tube of pizza dough and cut the dough into 4 equal squares. Use your hands or a rolling pin to roll each out to a thin circle (about 6 inches in diameter).

  • Divide the sausage and shredded Mozzarella cheese between the 4 circles, placing the filling on just one half of the circle.

  • Fold the dough over and pinch the edges to seal. Place them on the parchment paper.

  • For Egg Wash: In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, water, garlic powder and Parmesan.

  • Brush over the calzones and bake for 15 – 18 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • Serve with warmed pizza sauce, if desired.
