This recipe was so easy and came out great. I did not have the vegetables, but was still amazing. I had alot of sauce leftover, so maybe just use a smaller can next time to avoid waste. I did however put the remaining sausage in with the sauce to top it off after baking, with more shredded chheese too. Also 15 minutes was the perfect amount of time. Will probably be making this weekly as it was a big hit with my family. Thank you readyseteat.com.

Very good, easy to make meal. I used fresh onions and peppers instead of frozen, and I used two Pilsbury refrigerated pizza crusts instead of one. Loved by all who ate it, and will definitely make this dish again.

Very good, however, I make my own dough using yeast.

I just returned from Europe where I ordered and enjoyed my first "Calzone Baked Pizza" in Italy. It was so delightful that I had to look up this recipe and make my own. The one thing that made it so tasty was the use of Blue Cheese with the Italian sausage. It smelled delicious and tasted better. Hope someone tries it.
