Cheese Calzone

Serves : 8
Prep. Time : 0:35

1 recipe New York Style Pizza Dough
16 oz. ricotta cheese - lowfat okay
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese - lowfat okay
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 pinch sea salt
Toppings - of your choice (optional, see notes below)

-Divide the dough ball in four parts and place on floured surface.
-Spread, with finger tips, to four 6" circles.
-Combine ricotta, mozzarella, pepper, and salt.
-Place 1/4 of the cheese mixture on one side of a dough circle and top with desired meats/vegetables. Keep toppings to a minimum, as the center will not cook if you use too many.
-Fold dough circle in half. Seal with fingertips, making sure no cheese mixture is in the seal. Pinch the edge to assure a tight seal.
-Pat calzone to even filling inside.
-Check seal again for leaks.
-Repeat with the other dough circles.
-Place calzones on a lightly greased baking sheet.
-Cut a 1" slit in the top of each for venting while baking.
-Place in center of 500 degree oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

NOTES : Serve with your favorite tomato sauce, warmed, either on top or on the side for dipping.
