Recipe Ingredients for Sausage and Broccoli Calzones

16 oz Lean Turkey Italian Sausage
10 oz Frozen Broccoli
1 serving Garlic Cloves
2 oz 75% Light Cheddar
0.33 cup Fat Free Ricotta Cheese

Recipe Directions for Sausage and Broccoli Calzones

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray.

  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, breaking it up into small pieces with a spoon, and cook until browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Add the broccoli, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let cool, about 10 minutes. Add the provolone and ricotta cheeses; stir until well blended.

  3. Sprinkle a work surface lightly with flour. Unroll the pizza dough onto the surface. With a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the dough into an 11 x 16-inch rectangle. Cut the rectangle into 6 squares.

  4. Spoon the sausage mixture evenly onto the squares, using about 1⁄2 cup for each, and covering half of the dough in a rectangular mound, to 1⁄2 inch from the edges. Fold the dough over the filling and press the edges firmly to seal. Place the calzones on the baking sheet. Make 3 slashes in the top of each calzone. Bake until the crust is golden, about 12 minutes. Yields 1 calzone per serving.
