4 oz. sweet Italian sausage, casings removed and crumbled
1/2 c. tomato sauce
1/4 c. yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1 lb. frozen bread dough, thawed
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 T. grated parmesan cheese
1 large egg
2 T. milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease baking sheet. Cook sausage about 10 minutes until browned, drain well.
Combine tomato sauce, onion, garlic, basil and oregano in skillet with sausage. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a 5-inch circle. Spoon the filling evenly onto half of each circle. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Moisten edges of dough with water. Fold dough over filling and press edges to seal. Combine egg and milk and brush over calzones.
Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
You may add any additional ingredients you like (spinach, pepperoni, olives, etc.)
