Grilled Pepper, Onion, and Sausage Calzones

EvergreenHealth logo

Use turkey sausage to keep the fat in these calzones in check, or try a veggie-only version. You can make and freeze these, then pop one in the oven for a quick meal. From Cooking Light.

Ingredients

  • 1 package refrigerated pizza dough (or homemade dough)
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, quartered
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound Italian turkey sausage links
  • 1 3/4 cups plus 3 tablespoons pizza sauce
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Remove pizza dough from refrigerator; let stand at room temperature 1 hour.
  2. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Coat onion slices and bell pepper pieces with cooking spray. Place vegetables and sausages on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill vegetables 4 minutes on each side or until browned; grill sausages 8 minutes or until done, turning occasionally to brown on all sides. Remove vegetables and sausages from grill; cool slightly. Cut onion slices in half; cut bell pepper pieces into 1/2-inch strips. Cut sausages diagonally into thin slices. You can also sauté the sausage and vegetables instead of grilling.
  4. Preheat oven to 500°
  5. Place dough on a lightly floured surface; divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 9 x 5-inch rectangle. Spread 1/4 cup pizza sauce evenly over each rectangle, leaving a 1/4-inch border of dough. Arrange sausage evenly over half of each rectangle; top evenly with onion and bell peppers. Sprinkle each calzone with 1/3 cup cheese. Fold other half of dough over filling; press edges together with a fork to seal. Freeze portions you will not eat right away.
  6. Place calzones on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Coat calzones with cooking spray. Bake at 500° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Cut each calzone in half; serve with remaining sauce.
