Cheese Calzones

I used my basic pizza dough for this recipe and created a filling based loosely on a standard lasagna filling.  Of course I served it with my marinara sauce.

1 recipe pizza dough (enough for two pizza crusts)
1 15-ounce container ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 ground pepper

  1. Prepare the pizza dough as instructed, after the second rising, divide the dough into four equal portions and roll out into four circles.  Set aside.  Combine the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt, basil, oregano, and pepper.  Place 1/4 of the filling into each disc, fold over and seal but pinching shut the edges.  
  2. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.  
  3. Serve with marinara sauce and enjoy
