1 lb. hamburger
1 lb. pork sausage/breakfast sausage
black olives
1 c. bell peppers (any color), chopped
1 c. onion, chopped
1 c. mushrooms, chopped
1 c. warm water
2 packages quick rise yeast
3 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/3 c. dry milk
c. melted butter
About 4 or 5 c. of flour
Shredded mozzerella cheese
Shredded Co-Jack cheese

In a skillet, brown hamburger and sausage. Add olives and bell peppers (we prefer some red, orange,
green, and yellow). Add onions if desired (I have not found that too popular) and mushrooms.

In a bowl combine water with yeast (let the yeast activate). Add sugar, salt, dry milk and butter. Then add flour, starting with just two and then mix and knead and add flour until you get good kneaded dough (by the way -it makes good pizza dough too.). Let the dough rise for half an hour.

Cut dough into 8 pieces, roll each one out with a rolling pin, let rise another half hour.

Put burger/sausage/vegetables mix on each piece of dough, along with shredded mozzarella and CoJack cheeses, fold over and seal the edges.

Bake on a non-stick cookie pan at 425 for about 12 minutes.

Serve with spaghetti sauce poured over the top.

We strongly prefer and recommend half white and half whole wheat flour for the dough.
