Calzones are another item that you can make from pizza dough. Here is how I do it:

1/2 recipe of pizza dough
15 oz. ricotta cheese (can use the part skim)
1 egg
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Mix together the ricotta, the egg, and the shredded mozzarella and set aside.

Divide the dough into 4 or 5 portions, depending upon your appetite and the number of people you are feeding. Roll each piece of dough into a circle about the size of a dessert plate. Place some of the ricotta mixture on half of the dough circle.

Fold over the dough to cover the filling and crimp the edges to seal with a crimper or with a fork.

Place the completed turnovers on a baking sheet (I like to line this with parchment or use a silpat). Brush with a little oil. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 mins. Serve with heated spaghetti sauce.

You can vary these by adding well drained spinach or chopped pepperoni to the filling.
If you have any leftover you can reheat them at 375 degrees for about 15 mins.
I hope you will give them a try.
