This is a great calzone. There are a myriad of fillings that can be used but this is one of the favorites of my family.
• 1 Tbs olive oil • ½ Cup grated parmesan or romano cheese
• ½ Cup chopped onion • 2 tsp chopped fresh sage - if you use dried, use ¾ teaspoon
• ½ Cup chopped green pepper • ½ tsp black pepper
• 1 recipe of the calzone/pizza dough • 1 lb italian sausage
• 1 Cup ricotta cheese - this is important as it acts as a binder for the filling • 1 large egg
• 1 Cup cubed or shreaded mozzarella cheese [p]
Preparation Directions:
• heat the oil in a skillet and brown the sausage - set aside
• in the same pan, saute onion and pepper for 5 minutes
• press the dough out into a 12 inch circle, dough recipe makes 2
• combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add veggies and meat
• mix well
• place ½ of the filling on ½ of the calzone, fold dough over to make a half circle, seal the edges well
• repeat for the other calzone
• using a fork, make several holes in the calzone [p]Cooking Directions:
• preheat the egg, using an indirect setup, to 450 to 500 degree dome temperature
• place calzone on the pizza stone and cook until golden brown, usually 15-20 minutes
• watch through the chimney for doneness [p]Special Instructions:
• be sure not to allow any of the calzone to hang over the edge of the stone as the crust will burn at these high temperatures [p]

    Char-Woody,[p]Thanks CW, glad you enjoyed it. We generally do one of those a week, a real crowd pleaser at our place too. Thanks again.[p]Just grilled burgers here last night. It was terribly rainy and sleety, kinda "snain" if you know what I mean. I've been battling the flu for a couple of days and was just not up to much so I mixed up some burgers with ketchup, minced garlic, minced onion and green pepper, a little worst... sauce, salt and pepper, and made patties. I put on some McKormick Seasoning and grilled them till done at about 375. Pretty simple but good eats.[p]Glad you liked the calzones.
