If you have been reading my blog for very long, you know that I like to have a few quick & easy dishes I can make without having to think about them ahead of time. Tonight, I had a plan to use some sweet turkey sausage I had in the fridge. Since My Boys love sausage, I thought I might be able to create a calzone they would dig into and really love.
We've had calzones before, and even though they were tasty they weren't something they would ask for again. I even asked some of my Facebook friends for new name ideas to entice them into eating them... one was "pigs in a sleeping bag" while another was "flying sauce-ers" (that one was courtesy of my blogging friend, Janet of LaDue & Crew). Unfortunately, cute names did not do the trick. They would prefer just cheese inside and nothing else - basically the Pizza Bubble Ring is what they wanted. My Husband and I loved them, so I think they will be out-voted on this one and will be asked to try them again.

If you make your own pizza dough and keep it in the freezer or fridge (if its from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking - love their recipe for Olive Oil Pizza Dough!), you can throw this together in a snap with ingredients you probably have on hand anyway. Usually, I like to keep the ABin5 dough in my fridge, but didn't have room for it this week, so the prepared pizza dough from the market worked out fine in a pinch.
I would love to read what fillings for calzones you enjoy in a calzone. So, do tell if you could add anything what would it be?
