Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground sage sausage
  • 1 sweet Vidalia onion
  • 1 jar Bertolli Riserva Asiago Cheese and Artichoke Sauce
  • 2 packages pizza dough or make your own
  • 1 cup shaved parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  • Saute onion until golden. Remove from pan.
  • Brown sausage. Drain.
  • Add onion and jar of Riserva Asiago Cheese and Artichoke Sauce to sausage.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook over medium low until warm.
  • Roll out dough.
  • Use a 4 1/2- 5 inch cookie cutters or a same size bowl turned upside down to cut out circles for the calzones.
  • Fill each circle with about 2 Tablespoons of the sausage mix, depending on the size of your circles.
  • Top with a pinch of shaved parmesan, or more if you prefer.
  • Try not to get sauce on the outer edge of the dough as it will not stick together as well.
  • Stretch the dough a bit when folding over in half. Use a dough crimper/sealer to seal the dough. If you don't have a crimper, just use a fork, pressing down on edge so the sausage mix doesn't seep out while baking.
  • *Optional: Take some of the leftover dough and cut out a shape for the top of the calzones. I chose a leaf for fall.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until calzones are slightly browned.
