Yields: 12 pieces



Preheat oven to 425⁰F. Grease a large baking sheet.

Place herbs in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle and grind into a fine powder. The finer the better, but don't stress if it isn't super fine.

Place cheeses, herbs, salt, pepper, egg white, onion powder and garlic powder into a medium bowl. Stir until combined. Set aside.

Roll out dough. Cut into 12 even squares. spread out dough to twice its size. On one side of the dough, add a heaping tablespoon of ricotta cheese mixture, a teaspoonful of pizza sauce, and any other fillings as you wish.

Fold the top half of the dough over the fillings, and press on the edges to seal. If there are corners on your calzone, remove them.

*Optional: to round your calzones, pinch where the corners were and pull the dough around and to the back of the calzone. This should round the dough into a crescent. *

Repeat until all the dough squares are filled.

Place on greased baking sheet. Place tray in oven for 10-12 minutes, or until very lightly browned. Pull baking sheet out of the oven and place extra mozzarella on top. Place back into the oven for 4-5 minutes, or until cheese is brown and bubbly.

Allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve with extra pizza sauce.
