A nice alternative to pizza
1-1/2 lb. pizza dough (made in bread machine)
calzone toppings
Pesto (enough to spread)
1/2 lb. sausage, cooked
sliced mushrooms, green peppers and plum tomatoes
Onions (optional)
spinach (optional)
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parmesan cheese, shredded
2 spoons full ricotta cheese
1. Heat the oven (with baking stone in it), to 550 degrees.
2. Meanwhile, roll out the dough to about 12" circle.
3. Spread the pesto, then top with all of the ingredients (in order), making sure you leave a 1" parameter to "seal" the edges.
4. Fold the calzone, in half, keeping all of the toppings inside and press around the edges so the cheese doesn't melt out.
5. Take the pizza stone out of the oven, sprinkle with corn meal (working quickly) then place the calzones on the stone.
6. Bake for 8 mins. Take out of the oven, flip and bake for an additional 7 mins.
7. Make sure to let the calzone cool a little before cutting into.
You can play around with the ingredients and put whatever your family likes, instead.
