Homemade Pizza Pop/Calzones

Ingredients for Pizza Dough
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Ingredients for Filling
Jar Spaghetti Sauce
Green Pepper
Mozzarella Cheese

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a bowl.
Stir in sugar, oil, salt and 1 cup of flour. Beat until smooth.
Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
Place in greased bowl; turn greased side up. Cover and let rise in warm place until almost double, about 30 minutes

Prepare Filling:
Fry green pepper, onion, pepperoni and mushrooms. Add salt and pepper to your liking. In a bowl mix the above mixture with a small amount of spaghetti sauce. This is the mixture you will place on your rolled out dough. (other ingredients you can use: ham, pineapple, italian sausage, anything you like on a pizza).

Finishing Pizza Pop/Calzone:
Roll dough out on floured surface. Cut into 7 inch circles. Take the filling mixture and spread over half of each circle to within 1 inch of edge; top with cheese. Carefully fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal securely. Place sandwiches on greased cookie sheet; let rest 15 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Brush sandwiches with egg. Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

So Yummy! My husband likes them made really large. I baked them until slightly brown then cooled them and put them in plastic bag and froze. Just reheated on pizza stone at 350 degrees.
My boys just loved them and way cheaper than buying store pizza pops oh and did I mention they taste way better. Yup I am all about saving money.
