Tasty Tuesday: Calzone

As a special treat, occasionally I will make a home made Calzone for supper.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Pizza Dough

1 package of yeast
1 Cup warm water
1 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cups flour

Dissolve the yeast in warm water.  Stir in sugar, oil, salt, and I cup of flour.  Beat ingredients until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until almost double, about 30 minutes.

1 can tomato sauce
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 clove garlic, crushed

Mix the above ingredients together to make the sauce.  Prepare pizza pan by spraying with non stick spray.  Roll dough out into big circle and place on pizza pan.  

1 pound hamburger or Italian sausage browned and crumbled
1 onion chopped
pepperoni slices
mushrooms sliced
1 green pepper chopped
mozzarella cheese

Arrange your choice of pizza toppings on half the circle of dough.  When finished, fold dough over to make one large Calzone.  Seal the dough by pinching with fingertips.

Beat one egg and brush across the dough.  Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.  Slice and serve!

Bon Appetit'!
