  • 1 garlic clove , minced
  • 1 1/2 227-g pkg sliced mushrooms , about 5 cups

  • 2 cups grated mozzarella

  • Position rack in bottom third of oven. Preheat to 500F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  • Heat a large frying pan over high. Add 2 tsp oil, then onion and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until onion starts to soften, 1 to 2 min. Add mushrooms, tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook, stirring often, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 8 to 10 min. Remove from heat.
  • Place pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 6 pieces. Pat each piece into a flattened round. Using a floured rolling pin, roll each piece into a 6-in. circle. Dividing mushroom filling into 6 portions, scoop each one onto lower half of each circle, leaving a 1-in. border. Top with cheese and kielbasa. Brush dough edges with cold water. Fold top over filling. Firmly press edges of dough together to seal. Twist edges or press with a fork.
  • Place calzones on prepared baking sheet and brush lightly with remaining 2 tsp oil.
  • Bake in bottom third of oven until golden, 10 to 12 min.
