Recipe and photos by Reel Flavor
- 1 package (7.5 oz) Chebe Pizza Crust Mix
- 2 Tbsp olive oil or organic canola oil
- 1 cup shredded cheese (sharp or hard works best) firmly packed
- 2 large eggs
- 4 Tbsp water
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1 clove pressed garlic
- 1-2 Tbsp fresh basil, shredded
- 1 cup ground Italian turkey sausage, cooked and drained
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Marinara for dipping, optional
Preheat oven to 400F
In a large bowl, beat the eggs before adding the shredded cheese and 2 Tbsp of oil. Mixing well with a fork, slowly add the Chebe Pizza Crust mix. Stir well with a spoon before adding 4 Tbsp of water.
Mix as well as you can with a spoon, then knead the dough with your hands until smooth.
Roll out pizza dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out hearts using a heart shaped cookie cutter (or freehand with a knife).
Combine mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, garlic, basil, sausage and salt & pepper in a bowl.
Spoon the sauce mixture on one dough heart. Place another dough heart over the filling and seal the edges using a fork. (Be sure to not get the edges of the dough wet with the sauce as it will make sealing more difficult.)
Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet and spray the calzones with cooking spray or brush with oil.
Bake for about 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and serve with marinara sauce.
