Semi Homemade Calzones!

There used to be a Calzone/Pizza chain in Seattle called Pete's Calzones, where I used to go all the time during college for a quick bite that would last me at least two meals. I started thinking about Pete's the other day when I was watching something on tv where they were eating Calzones. I couldn't stop thinking about 'em, so I decided to make what I remembered was Pete's Garlic Lovers Calzone. It was easy and quick and oh-so-delicious. A true winner!

Semi Homemade Calzones

by Chop Mince Dice
Yields 3 calzones:

Pre-made frozen pizza dough
1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup Marscapone
1/4 cup grated Parmeson Cheese
1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese

Fix-ins - whatever you like! I used...
Chopped-up Sun Dried Tomatoes
6 garlic cloves sliced thin
1 zucchini
Salami cut into small pieces
1/2 red onion

1. Pull the frozen pizza dough out of the freezer the morning of the night you're planning on making your calzones, to de-thaw

2. Once it's fully dethawed roll out the pizza dough and brush with EVOO, Salt, and Pepper

3. Slice the dough into 3 different pieces (should be about 6" wide 12-15" long)

3. Mix all of the cheeses together and put a hefty amount into each piece of dough

4. Place a generous amount of ingredients into each dollop of cheese mixture

5. Fold over the dough and then crimp the edges (making sure to close very tightly)

6. Follow the pizza dough instructions on baking time - mine baked at 375* for 40 minutes
