Easy Calzone

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Here is an easy weekday meal. This meal takes a little longer then my typical recipes. To speed it up I'd cook my meat ahead of time.

1 lb. ground turkey or sausage
1 box Hormel Pepperoni
1 package shredded cheese 
1 roll refrigerated pizza dough
1 can pizza sauce
3 tablespoons butter (melted)
1 bell pepper
1 small onion
oregano(to taste)
garlic salt (to taste)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Sauté' onions and bell peppers in one teaspoon oil. Set aside.
Next brown sausage and drain.
In a bowl combine vegetables and sausage. Add 1/3 cup pizza sauce.

In a greased baking dish, roll out pizza dough and cover the middle with pizza sauce.
Cover sauce with cheese.
 Next pour the meat mixture on top of the dough.
Carefully stretch the dough to fit around the meat mixture.
Use toothpicks to hold the pizza dough closed on the top and sides, if needed. Use toothpicks to close up any holes that may pop open.

in a bowl, melt butter and mix with oregano and garlic salt. Pour the mixture over the pizza dough.

This creates a soft buttery crust on the outside of the pizza. Yours should look similar to this.
 Next bake according to dough instructions.
