Prep: 30 Minutes
Cook: 30 Minutes

Cook sausage links according to package directions; drain, cut into 1/4 –inch slices and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine mozzarella, ricotta, egg, parsley and seasonings.  On a lightly floured surface, cut dough in half.  Roll each into a 12-inch circle.  On two parchment-lined baking sheets, carefully place one dough round on each baking sheet.  Spoon ½ cup of pizza sauce, half the cheese mixture and half of the sausage slices onto the lower half of each dough round, keep the outer ½ -inch edge of dough free of ingredients.  With a pastry brush, moisten the outer ½ -inch of each dough round with water.  Fold dough over filling and crimp edges firmly to seal.  Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.  Cut each Calzone in half and serve with remaining pizza sauce.
