"I made my own pizza dough and used this recipe for ideas of what to fill it with. I used a bag of frozen peppers and onions from Krogers, Morning Star Sausage crumbles, Stuffing mix (seasoned bread crumbs), and marinera sauce. After they were done baking I topped them with shredded cheese. I look forward to following this recipe more directly and trying a million other variations! Calzones are so yummy!"

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350F. In large skillet, brown sausage, pour off fat. Add 3/4 cup pasta sauce, mushrooms, green pepper and onion. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, unroll crescent dough and separate into 8 rectangles. Firmly press perforations together and flatten slightly. In a small bowl mix egg and water, brush on dough edges. Stir cheese into meat mixture. Spoon equal amounts of meat mixture onto half of each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges. Fold dough over filling. Press to seal edges. Arrange on baking sheet; brush with egg mixture. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Heat remaining pasta sauce; serve with calzones. Refrigerate leftovers.

The basic process is good, and next time I want to add more vegetables and less pasta sauce.

Dough is a little hard to work w/ and lacking flavor.
