Sausage Calzones, you’ll be on fire for this one

Homemade sausage calzones are a beautiful thing. They’re pockets of pizza dough that have been stuffed with sweet Italian sausage, bacon, fresh herbs, and lots of ooey, gooey cheese, then baked up until they’re golden on the outside and outrageously delicious on the inside!

It’s like a bazillion degrees outside today and I’m blaming it on the people who weren’t happy with last weeks refreshing break mother nature granted us with. If it was a bazillion and it rained every now and then it may not be such a bad thing. It hasn’t rained though. The grass is brown and my plants are starting to turn yellowish brown even though I’ve been making sure to water them. I’ll be really sad if I lose my garden now due to a PO’d Mother Nature.

Speaking of hot…

I made a total newb mistake today and put my hand down on a burner that was cleverly disguised as off. Ha! Got me. I have been removing random things from the freezer to cool my burns for a few hours now. Dummy.

Oh, and speaking of hot again, but in a good way…

Homemade sausage calzones for dinner, anyone?!

Homemade Sausage Calzones \\ Recipe on



The filling for these homemade sausage calzones was actually quite tasty and I may use the left overs in a pasta dish later this week.

These are a great quick dinner that can be customized to each person. Mushrooms, broccoli, pepperoni, ham – you get the idea (how do you think the bacon ended up in there?). It could all be thrown in to each individual calzone.

Off to go find a fresh from the freezer item….

Is it wrong that the first thing I thought of when I came here was "omfg, I'm going to eat those thumbnails!" ?? Cause, seriously. All of this food is amazing. *drool*

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. IE is SO annoying when you're trying to code. I'm glad that isn't just me that thinks this though. I checked out your design site, too. Very cool :) You do amazing typography work.

Um, this doesn't just make my mouth water and my stomach rumble, it makes me want to jump for joy a little. I LOVE homemade calzones (and highly recommend the pizza dough they sell in the cold section at Whole Foods). And? I love your blog design! Too cute!
