Mini Sausage Calzones

I forgot to take a picture of these before freezing them, but we didn't forget to taste them--they are delicious! I found this recipe on You and your kids will love them!! To freeze, prepare them completely; cool and then wrap each individually in saran wrap and foil and place in a labeled ziploc bag. When you are ready to serve from the freezer, thaw and reheat for 10 minutes or until heated through. Easy!

    • 1 lb frozen bread dough, thawed
    • 4 ounces sweet Italian sausage
    • 1/2 cup chopped onions
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced

    • 1/2 cup pizza sauce

  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add sausage.
  5. Cook until brown and crumbly, drain fat.
  6. Stir onion, garlic, basil, oregano, and pizza sauce into skillet, simmer for 10 minutes.
  7. Roll each dough piece into a 5in circle.

  10. Fold dough over to enclose filling, press to seal.
