Salami , Roasted Red Pepper Calzones

I made pizza last week , and i froze the other half of the dough , a good way to use the left overs pizza dough , either you make another pizza , or make calzones . I ended up using it for calzones . I thawed out my frozen pizza dough in the fridge this morning , by late afternoon it was pretty much ready to be used . The pizza dough i used freezes very well , and i can use it as if it’s a just made fresh today . For the filling , i put some salami , added some mushroom , roasted red pepper , and used mozzarella cheese and provolone cheese . It was super easy and pretty yummy . For the dipping sauce , i used my regular pizza sauce , i made it from tomato paste mixed with water , and some spices , such as basil , oregano , marjoram , onion , etc .

You need :

1 pizza dough and pizza sauce

1/4 lbs of salami from deli, thinly sliced

1 can or fresh button mushrooms

1 roasted red pepper , chopped

1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese

about 4-5 slices of provolone cheese

bunches of parsley leaves , chopped

2 eggs

In a bowl , beat the eggs and parsley , set aside half of the beaten eggs . Add mozzarella into the half beaten eggs with parsley . Preheat oven to 400 F , preheat the baking sheet too . Roll out your pizza dough into 9 x12 rectangle on a parchment paper , spread the mozzarella egg mixture on the one half of the dough , topped with salami , mushroom and roasted red pepper , and provolone cheese . Fold the top over it , crimp well , and slide the calzone on the parchment paper into the preheated baking sheet , and bake for 15 minutes . Brush with the beaten egg mixture , bake for another 5 or 10 minutes until it’s golden brown . Serve with pizza sauce as the dipping sauce .
