Pillsbury Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb bulk Italian pork sausage
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 can (10.2 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (2 oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato pasta sauce, heated

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In 8-inch skillet, cook sausage, onion and bell pepper over medium heat 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 5 biscuits. On ungreased large cookie sheet, press each biscuit into 6-inch round. Top half of each round with sausage mixture and cheese to within 1/2 inch of edge. Fold dough over filling; press edges firmly with fork to seal.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm calzones with warm pasta sauce for dipping.

  • To reduce the fat in each serving by about 6 grams, substitute turkey sausage for the Italian sausage and use Grands!® reduced-fat buttermilk biscuits instead of the regular ones.
  • The calzones can be assembled up to 2 hours ahead. Be sure the sausage filling is completely cooled before filling the dough. Cover the calzones and refrigerate until you're ready to bake them.
