Remove dough from machine and roll it into circles of approximately 8 inches. Spread filling on one half of the circle leaving a border around it for closing. Close the >> calzone by folding the unfilled side on top of the filled side and crimping the edges closed with your fingers or a fork. Place on a lightly greased baking pan. Let rise approx. 30 minutes. Brush lightly with olive oil and bake at 500 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until puffed and golden. (I bake them at 485 degrees for 15 minutes in my oven.) The original recipe says to put 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons each or ricotta and grated mozzarella cheese in each calzone. >> My favorite filling is the following...... SPINACH FILLING : Saute thawed spinach in olive oil and garlic powder until all water has evaporated. (I squeeze out excess liquid first) Mix cheeses into spinach. You may substitute frozen chopped broccoli for spinach.

Measure -----------ounce cups cup cups teaspoon ounces pound pound pound ounces

Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------------------------------active dry yeast warm water olive oil bread flour salt chopped fresh rosemary -- tarragon and oregano for the filling pesto ham -- thinly sliced provolone cheese -- sliced coppacola (spicy italian -- ham) thinly sliced sweet red peppers, roasted -- peeled and sliced pepperoncinis -- drained and (6 - 8) egg egg white cornmeal

For the Pizza Dough Soften the yeast in the water. Stir in the oil, then the flour and salt. Knead dough on a floured board until smooth and elastic (about 20 minutes). Shape into a round ball, cover with plastic and refrigerate 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Shape the pizza dough into a ball and then roll out into a large oval shape (about 24 inches long). About 2 inches behind the front edge, spread the pesto in a long stripe, stopping just short of the ends. Just behind and overlapping the pesto, place a layer of the ham slices, then a layer of cheese then the coppacolla, peppers and pepperoncini. You should still have about 2 inches of dough showing at the back edge. Beat the egg and brush on the back edge and ends of the dough. Roll up Calzone as firmly as possible (so no air gets inside). Tuck the ends in and finish with the back edge on the bottom, not on the side. Place on a baking sheet pan sprinkled with corn meal, brush with egg white and bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature and slice. Can be sliced thin for appetizers NOTE: To roast peppers, preheat broiler. Slice the peppers in half lengthwise. Core them and remove the seeds and ribs. Lay the pieces skin side up on a flat broiling pan and place the pan 3 - 4 inches below the heat. Broil the peppers until the skins are charred (they should be black). Then place the peppers in a plastic bag, seal it with a twist tie and set aside. Let peppers steam in the bag for 15 minutes. Remove the peppers from the bag and slip off the charred skins.
