Homemade calzone

OK, so late Friday night my husband got the munchies.  We were out of Cheez-Its (keep reading for a homemade Cheez-Its recipe) so he decided to make a pizza.  Much to his chagrin we didn't have pizza sauce, so he decided to make his own from tomato sauce and a few spices.  It was great!  He had a little left over so I decided to use it in tonight's dinner.

This is what you will need to make homemade calzones.

A thawed freezer bread dough, ricotta cheese, pizza sauce, cheese and toppings
It's super easy and delicious!  First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Spread the dough out on an oiled baking sheet or cornmeal-dusted pizza stone

Spread about half a pint of ricotta on one half of the dough

Add the sauce

Top with mozzarella or any Italian blend of shredded cheese

Add pepperoni, veggies,  etc.

Gently fold dough over and roll the seams

Slit a few holes to release steam, brush with egg wash, and lightly salt

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown
