Turkey Sausage & Pepper Calzone. Customizable.

I used King Arthur’s Italian Style flour (but you can buy pizza dough at the grocery store).  I used their recipe on the back of their product to make the dough.  You can use other pizza dough recipes (I have several on my blog that you can search).

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. You can bake on pizza stone or a Silpat lined baking sheet (which is what I used).  From there, you will divide the dough into two balls.  Roll them out about 14×14 inches and about 1/4 inch thick.  Place your filling (I used turkey sausage and peppers/onions that was already cooked and cooled) in the center of the dough.  Make slices into the dough as pictured above.  Then starting at the bottom you are going to overlap the dough resembling a braid (although it isn’t a braid).  Maybe I should say criss-crossing.  Using two spatulas’ I gently lifted and placed on my baking sheet.  Bake until golden brown and heated through.  I baked it for about 35 minutes but every oven is different.  You want a nice light brown crust and heated ingredients.  I made one with mozzarella and one without (my youngest isn’t a fan).  I have marinara sauce for dipping.  Easy and can prepare ahead of time and reheat.  Also would be awesome for your Super Bowl party.  Fill it with whatever fun ingredients you love.  Pepperoni, sausage, beef, cheeses etc.
