Sausage, Onion and Pepper... Calzone, I Guess.

I woke up at around seven AM the other day (I usually work nights so that's really early for me) and couldn't get back to sleep. So once again I got bored and wrapped something in pizza dough. Hey, I needed something to do. Making the dough took up a couple hours and while I was waiting for the dough to rise, I spent some time cleaning. Two birds and such. I had a couple cooked Italian sausages left over from a previous meal, so I figured I would just wrap them up with some sauteed onions and peppers. It came out really well, here's a pre roll shot. Please ignore the stuff on the counter, it's all from this meal I swear. I also put some mozzarella and a little Dijon mustard on there. Then I popped it onto the pizza stone in the preheated 500 degree oven. And I pulled out this. Kinda.. popped open a bit. Had a cheese explosion or two as well. But whatever, look at that. It was wicked good, even lukewarm after I took a million pictures. Heh.I meant to brush it with olive oil before it went in but completely flaked. That would have made it brown much more evenly. Darker, too. You could just as easily cut up the sausages and put little bites of them with some diced vegetables in a smaller piece of dough and have some appetizers if you wanted. Good times.

It's totally a hand sandwich. You're good with these meats in the bread creations.
