I adapted an Allrecipes.com for a student to complete a final who did not eat red meat.
These were mind blowingly delicious! It was my first experience with Italian seasoned turkey sausage and I LOVED IT!

How to Make Healthy Turkey Calzones

Step-by-Step

  1. In a skillet, cook the turkey sausage until cooked through. Add onion, green pepper, and galric; cook over medium heat, drain and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, bring tomato sauce and Italian seasoning to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir 1/2 cup of sauce into meat mixture; keep remaining sauce warm.
  3. Unroll pizza crust on a floured surface. Roll into a 12 inch circle; cut into 2 sections. Spread ricotta cheese over each section to about 1/2 inch of the edge. Top with meat mixture. Sprinkle with cheese, mushrooms, and olives.
  4. Fold dough over filling, forming a triangle; press edges together with a fork to seal.
  5. Place on a greased cookie sheet. In a small bowl, combine egg and water, whisk together. Lightly brush over calzones with a pastry brush. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining sauce.
