I’m a true pizza fan but I’ve never really paid that much attention to the calzone. I don’t know why because it’s really quite a genius thing. It has all of the flavors of a pizza but is much easier to eat. The choices for fillings are endless, but I made these lasagna versions which were extremely well-liked in our house.
The filling has only four ingredients but you’d never know it due to the flavor that these calzones pack! I love how you can just lift up the calzone and eat it. No mess, no fuss. For my calzones I used mild Italian sausage, but next time I’ll try making a hot version. Ground chorizo would be great to use as well. This recipe is so easy to make, so get the kids involved. They’ll love making their own food.
Start by browning the sausage in a pan with the canola oil. Cook until the sausage is fully cooked, and transfer to a bowl.
