Jenstarling 3y agoThe basic process is good, and next time I want to add more vegetables and less pasta sauce.
katiepearson1 3y agoI 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!
