Sausage Broccoli Calzone Recipe

You know how people drop in unannounced and often a little famished? To remain calm in your own kitchen, reach for packaged French bread dough, sausage, cheese and veggies - then roll out the red carpet. —Angie Colombo, Oldsmar, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 12 ounces bulk pork sausage
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated crusty French loaf
  • 2 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a small skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in sage.
  • 2. On an ungreased baking sheet, unroll dough starting at the seam; pat into a 14-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spoon sausage lengthwise across center of dough. Sprinkle with broccoli and cheeses. Bring long sides of dough to the center over filling; pinch seams to seal. Turn calzone seam side down.
