  • 1 pound pizza dough see notes
  • 1 cup pizza sauce plus more for dipping
  • 7 ounces pepperoni chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 4 ounces Italian sausage cooked and crumbled
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese shredded
  • Spray olive oil


  • Split the pizza dough into six pieces. Make sure to coat it in flour first, so it does not stick to your hands.
  • Roll each piece of dough out or stretch it with your hands until it is about 6 inches all the way around.
  • Layer the dough with pizza sauce, pepperoni, onion, bell pepper, sausage and italian cheese.
  • Fold the dough over and seal the edges with a fork.
  • Spray the air fryer with olive oil spray. Place the calzones in the air fryer and spray them with olive oil spray. Cook on 370 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes.


  • Make sure your pizza dough is fully thawed before using. Homemade pizza dough can be made 3 to 4 days ahead of time and be kept in the fridge.
  • Pizza dough is very sticky, so be sure to coat it in flour and roll it out on a floured surface.
  • Don't go too crazy on the fillings, the calzone need to be fully sealed before the are cooked.
  • If you make these in a basket air fryer, you will have to cook them in batches. You can keep them warm in the oven once cooked.
  • I used store-bought pizza dough. It can be found at some grocery stores. Pizza dough can also be found in the frozen section in some grocery stores.
