2. Cook hot Italian sausage,  pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and garlic.

3. Add sauce and sauteed vegetables to half of the calzone, as well as cheese and artichoke hearts.

    OMG that looks so delicious! 🙂 I love calzones, even though they make me extremely full by the time I’m done with them.
