Chicago Seven Calzones

Chicago Seven Calzones are like a supreme pizza in a portable pocket form.  This particular combination of ingredients was inspired by one of our favorite pizzas, “The Chicago 7”  at the Old Chicago restaurant chain.  They no longer have a restaurant in our area, so of course I had to figure out how to make it myself!  Of course, like many recipes I make, these are customizable.  Notice that some of the calzones have three slits in the top instead of two?  Those have no green pepper, just for my husband 😉

Sausage, Pepper, & Onion Pizza

First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers out there!  I realize this isn’t your normal “Mother’s Day Brunch” post or something like that, but I hope you all like it anyway.  Celebrate mom by making her something special, no matter what it is!

I love to make and eat the “street food” of Sausage, Peppers, & Onions.  Have I ever actually ate it as “street food”?  Well, no.  But I can imagine that it’s pretty great when other people make it too.  When I found some great looking (and great priced!) bell peppers at the market, I knew what I wanted to do with them.  However, my husband commented that night that, “Pizza sounds really good,” so I decided to experiment.

Thus, Sausage, Pepper, & Onion Pizza was created.  And I’m so glad my husband was craving pizza that night!
