3 lbs. frozen bread dough (3 loaves)
10 oz. Italian sausage
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb. sliced mushrooms
1 grated carrot
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 2 1/4 oz. can sliced black olives
1 tsp. dry basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp sugar
2 c. mozzarella cheese
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Let frozen bread dough defrost 1-2 hours. Brown and crumble sausage; add onion, garlic, mushrooms, and carrot. Cook until limp. Drain fat. Stir in sauce, olives, and seasonings. Simmer 5 minutes. Add cheeses and salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
Divide dough (each 1 lb. loaf) into 3 sections. Pull or roll to make 6-8" diameter circles. Fill centers with approximately 3 T. of the filling. Fold over and pinch sides. (Shaped like a semi-circle) Place on greased cookie sheets. Prick tops and brush with a little oil. Bake 15-20 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You can make substitutions: hamburger and/or sausage, chopped pepperoni etc. I have shaped them as 3 long loaves; rolled them out oblong and cut and braided the bread like a coffee cake. (Check Betty Crocker :-) if you don't understand.) Great for a Super Bowl party or slumber party etc.
