Full Answer

This recipe makes eight servings and takes only about 20 minutes to prepare. Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and lightly grease a 12-inch pan. Unroll one of the cans of dough, then place the dough in a greased pan. Press the dough from the center to the edge of the pan. Layer the pepperoni, olives, mushrooms and provolone cheese over the dough.

Unroll the second can of dough, and press it out on a work surface to form a round pizza dough about 12 inches in diameter. Fold the dough in half, place over the provolone cheese, then unfold and seal to the bottom dough. Cut in a number of slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese, and then place in the oven for about 30 minutes. The crust should be a deep, golden brown color. Cut the calzone into wedges. Serve it warm with pizza sauce for dipping.
