The long awaited Heroes season premier/calzone sandwich night arrived!
I'm skipping the "are calzones really sandwiches" question. They have bready stuff on either side of filling. Enough said.

First, the ingredients: I went to Cossetta's, of course. I got the dough, pizza sauce, pepperoni, Italian sausage, and olives there. Their pizza dough is so good, I don't know why you would even bother trying to make your own. Homemade dough always tastes so yeasty, unless you put a couple days into it.
I also picked up spinach, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, parmesan, and ricotta. I made a lovely ingredient buffet so everyone could assemble their own concoction (that's my favorite Sandwich Night arrangement!)

Kate, Karen and Angie came. The assembly area was such a frenzy that I didn't really keep track of what anyone was putting in their calzones. I do know that Karen made two--a veggie and a meat-tastic. Which was fortunate since half of the veggie went home with Angie to give to Mandy. (Calzones were Mandy's idea in the first place!)

We tossed them into the oven in time to catch the second half of Dancing With the Stars (seriously, who are half of these "stars" who are dancing? Do they expect the magnitude of Wayne Newton to make up for the D-list qualifications of some of the others?)

Then it was on to the big event! Heroes! Calzones! Lovely!
