Reviews for Italian Sausage Calzone
"This was really good. I left out the mushrooms because I don't like them. I think I will use olives in place of them the next time. I agree with the previous writer that this does make a lot of filling and you could easily use 2 pizza crusts. It was difficult to stuff it all in one."
"i would use 2 pizza crust rolls--this makes a lot! Absolutely delicious!!!"
"This always satisfies my hungry boys. We use Italian sausage in alot of recipes and this one is a sure winner. It gets made alot since its so easy and fast to make."
