This turned out pretty good for us. It was a lot like the Calzones we made with the Philsbury pizza dough, which had the italian sausage and onions in it. We still prefer homemade pizza dough but this only took a few minutes to make, and that sure makes a difference when you don't have a lot of time.

I tried this recipe last night and we thought it was good too. I replaced the mushrooms with red pepper. The dough was a little hard to work with and definitely turned out more like biscuit crust than bread crust, but it was easy. (just be sure to only add in 1/2 c. of the pizza sauce instead of all of it, oops!) I think we'll do it again sometime.
