  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage, crumbling with a wooden spoon, until cooked through. Season with oregano, salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.
  • Reduce the heat to medium, add olive oil and cook the peppers until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Dust the counter with flour and roll each piece of dough into a 9- by 9-inch circle.
  • Spread ¼ cup of tomato sauce on one half of each dough circle, leaving a ½-inch border.
  • Divide the sausage, peppers, olives cheese and basil evenly between the pizza dough, piling on top of the tomato sauce.
  • Fold the other side of the dough over top of the filling and, using a fork or your fingers, seal the edges of the dough.
  • Place the calzones on the baking sheet and bake until the dough is golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Let the calzones rest for 5 minutes, than cut in half and serve with extra tomato sauce, if desired.
