    NAKABI - I found some calzone recipes on line and tried them one of them out. I can't remember which one I did use. Basically, I first cooked up sweet italian sausage in a fry pay and then put it to the side to finish draining. I added a little butter to the pan and sauteed up sweet onions, yellow bell peppers, and minced garlic. I rolled out the Harris Teeter pizza dough on a floured board and put the sausage down the center then topped with the peppers, onion, and garlic. To that I put in sliced ham and sliced salami. On top of the ham and salami I added cheese (whatever I had) and banana peppers. Then you fold over the dough to make a 1/2 moon shape. Place on a cookie sheet and brush with an egg wash. Cook in a 375 oven for about 30 minutes or until the dough is a golden brown. They were a huge hit with the 17 year olds I had at my home along with the adults that were there.

    Homemade calzones. Other than needing to pick up some salami I have everything else in my freezer or fridge from previous sales over the past few weeks. I made these a couple of weeks ago for a youth leadership training at my home so have some left over items from then. They were a huge hit. My hubby is looking forward to having these tonight as he is home recovering from hip replacement surgery earlier in the week.
