We also tested with frozen vegetables, but we found better flavor and saved money by using a fresh bell pepper and onion.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Sauté first 3 ingredients in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink and vegetables are lightly browned. Remove from skillet, and drain well.

Step 2

Stir together ricotta cheese, eggs, and seasoning.

Step 3

Unroll 1 can of dough on a lightly greased baking sheet. Stretch dough into a 10- x 13-inch rectangle. Spoon 1/4 cup pizza sauce, 1 cup ricotta mixture, and half of sausage mixture on half of rectangle, leaving a 1-inch border. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Moisten edges with water; fold dough over, pressing and crimping edges to seal. Cut 3 (1-inch) slits on top of dough to allow steam to escape. Repeat procedure with remaining dough, pizza sauce, ricotta mixture, sausage mixture, and cheese.

Step 4

Bake at 425° for 24 to 26 minutes or until golden. Serve with additional warm pizza sauce, if desired.

Step 5

*Marinara sauce may be substituted.

Step 6

Note: For testing purposes only we used Mrs. Dash Original Herb Seasoning Blend.

Step 7

Cheesy Mexican Calzones: Prepare recipe as directed, substituting 1 lb. ground beef and 1/2 tsp. salt for sausage, 2 tsp. salt-free Southwest chipotle seasoning and 3/4 tsp. salt for salt-free herb-and-spice seasoning, and shredded Mexican four-cheese blend for shredded Italian six-cheese blend. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend.
