Calzone o Greatness

A whole pizza folded in half. Is there anything better than that. Enough said.

I used the pizza dough recipe that I posted a while ago. I prefer to use homemade vegan sausages but Tofurky ones work great too.

Vegan Sausage Calzone

1 recipe pizza dough
a few italian style seitan sausages, diced up
1/2 med onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
crushed red pepper
1 zucchini, diced
handful of heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved
shredded vegan cheese
dried oregano
garlic salt

First get a pan on medium heat add a few glugs olive oil and saute the onion and garlic. Season with salt and crushed red pepper flakes. Add the seitan sausages. Brown them for about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and zucchini and cook for 5 minutes until the zucchini is tender. Let cool and set aside. Get your dough worked into a circle about, as big as you want but not too big, spread the sausage mixture over half the circle then top with cheese. Add a bit of oregano. Fold over and crimp the edges, rub the calzone with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake at 450F until golden brown about 20 minutes.


  1. oh man. oh man. Did you know I made your mac and cheese the other night and it may have been the best meal I've ever eaten, which means you should forget about engineering anything but amazing food.

  2. That calzone is a thing of beauty. Nice work!
