Homemade Vegan Sausage and Cheese Calzones



  • Jamie Oliver’s Pizza Dough Recipe (I halved this recipe, which still produced 4 large calzones)
  • olive oil, for sauteing
  • 4 shallots, sliced
  • 10 oz bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 vegan sausages, sliced thinly
  • 810 oil-cured olives, pitted and sliced
  • 12 cups prepared marinara sauce
  • homemade mozzarella cheese (I halved this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place a pizza stone into the oven on the lowest rack. Allow to preheat at 500 while you prepare the other ingredients and roll out the dough.
  2. Heat a teaspoon of olive oil over medium low heat in a saute pan. Add in the shallots and allow to soften, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and place into a small bowl.
  3. Add a little more oil to the pan and add in the mushrooms. Allow to soften for 6-8 minutes, then add in the garlic and saute for about a minute more. Transfer to another small bowl.
  4. If needed, re-oil the pan and add in the sausages. Saute until slightly browned, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  5. Separate the dough into flour equal pieces. On a floured surface, roll them out to form circles with a 8- to 10-inch diameter. They don’t need to be perfect.
  6. Fill one side of each of the calzones with all of the components. Fold the dough over the top, and pinch the sides together to form a seal.
  7. Once the pizza stone has preheated at 500 for about 30 minutes, place the calzones on it (I did two separate batches). Brush with a generous amount of olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for about 15 minutes, checking the bottoms to ensure they do not burn.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes, then serve.
