1/2 pound Italian Sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
2 tablespoons fresh snipped parsley
1 garlic clove, pressed
2 packages (10 ounces each) refrigerated pizza crust (2 crusts)
1 ounce fresh Parmesan cheese, grated (1/4 cup)

Additional pizza sauce (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In small batter bowl, combine sausage, mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, parsley and garlic pressed with garlic press; mix well.

2. Unroll pizza crusts; place side by side on Cutting board. Using pizza cutter, cut each crust into six squares, for a total of 12 squares. Divide filling evenly onto centers of squares using Medium scoop. Gather four corners of each square up over filling; twist together to seal. Place calzones, seam side up, into Stoneware Muffin Pan. Using Deluxe cheese grater, grate parmesan cheese over calzones.

3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan. Serve with additional pizza sauce, if desired.
