This filling was inspired by meat and potatoes. Take a bow.

Go here for the dough recipe.

Sausage Potato Calzone

  • 2 Italian sausage sliced thin
  • 1 lb red potatoes diced small
  • 1 jalapeno minced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced small
  • 2 cloves garlic sliced thin
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil
  • one recipe pizza dough

Steam potatoes until almost cooked through. In a large frying pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil and saute peppers and garlic until soft. Add sausage and brown. Add potatoes and fry until sausage is cooked through and potatoes are browned. Spoon filling into calzone dough. Add cheese and seal. Bake at 400 degrees until browned and done, about 20 minutes.

    I have no doubt that this will be replicated by one of the big nationals, how could it not, it’s amazing looking and sounds like it would taste equally as good. That cheddar is really what makes it for me.

  6. Sausage and potato sound delicious.
