Many pizzerias make this popular Northern Italian food. It's like a double-stuffed pizza, which makes it double yummy!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms (2 to 3 ounces), sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons water, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 (8 ounce each) packages refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large nonstick skillet, brown sausage over medium-high heat; drain any liquid and add tomato paste, mushrooms, onion, green pepper, 2 tablespoons water, and Italian seasoning. Simmer uncovered, 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, unroll crescent roll dough, separating each dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations together on each rectangle and flatten slightly. In a small bowl, combine egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush mixture onto edges of dough.
  3. Stir cheese into meat mixture and spoon equal amounts onto half of each dough rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges. Fold dough over filling and press to seal edges.
  4. Arrange on a 10- x 15-inch rimmed cookie sheet and brush with egg mixture. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Heat spagehetti sauce and serve with calzones.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

forget the rolls, use pizza dough. makes for a more real calzone.

You can't get the real Italian Calzone test.You must use the home made dough. if you use ready made dough or Crescent Rolls, you will get biscuit test not a Calzone test.
