I don't know whether it started when he and Kenna started dating or when he moved into his apartment, but Philip, my brother, has a few specialties in the kitchen. One of them is a semi-homemade calzone. When he came home for Thanksgiving, surprising me Tuesday night...I was NOT expecting anyone when the garage door started going up...he started looking through the fridge for something to eat. Well, my mom had not stocked up, knowing that we'd have lots of food for Thanksgiving. There really was nothing to eat unless you had eggs or cereal! So, he went out to the grocery store and returned to make his calzone...while I napped on the couch at 8pm! I think that the concept is really good but my calzone would be QUITE different from Philip's...think lots of veggies and less cheese! However, because he's the chef for this meal, I'll give you his recipe!
1 Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough
1 pack of pepperoni
1/4 lb sausage ("depending on how much you want" per Philip)
1 small can olives
1 bag (I believe the 2 cup variety) mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to temperature indicated on the dough package. In a skillet, brown the sausage; drain. Roll out the dough on a cookie sheet or stone (Philip prefers the sheet). On half the dough, pile all of your ingredients, spreading out the pepperoni and cheese. Fold other half over the filling and roll the sides to close edges. Put in oven and bake for time instructed on dough...I'm really not sure on this, Philip didn't tell me. Just be sure the crust is done and brown. I'm thinking 15-20 minutes. Let cool for a little bit so you don't have too many juices come out. Cut to the size piece you want (Philip ate half) and serve with pizza/marinara sauce on the side. Enjoy!
