Homemade Vegan Sausage and Cheese Calzones

One of the best parts about making these was the aroma that's emitted during the baking time, which lingered throughout our house through the following morning. Allow to preheat at 500 while you prepare the other ingredients and roll out the dough.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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes, then serve. I'm always a little intimidated by calzones, but this makes it seem fairly easy! I used to make calzones all the time, but it's been years. i loved calzones growing up, and have made a few gf vegan ones. they were nothing special and it's probably been about a year since i've tried making them again.
