Calzone is a folded pizza.  It uses same pizza dough and ingredients as pizza and it is in half moon shaped. But we like to use different ingredients in it. so I used Ricotta, Spinach, carrot, garlic and spices. You can use any vegetables or  meat to stuff this dish. Just make sure that those ingredients don't have any water in it otherwise dough become soggy and it's a disaster   I like to make  big calzone so when other one is in the oven we can share the ready one but you can make personal size calzone too.

Ingredients :

Pizza dough (use the recipe which i have it home made wheat dough)
8 oz Part Skim Ricotta cheese
8 oz frozen spinach (thawed and squeeze)
1 carrot shredded
8 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 green chili finely chopped
few black olives
8 oz mozzarella cheese
3 tbsp parmasean cheese
salt to taste
1 tsp dry parsley leaves
1 tsp red chili flakes
Marinara sauce for dipping

Make dough as per the recipe.

Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a bowl, add ricotta, spinach, garlic, carrot, chili, 1/2 cup mozzarella , olives, parmigiana cheese, salt, parsley , chili flakes and mix it. taste it if its need re seasoning.

Take one part of the dough and make big pie.
Put 1/3 of the mixture in one side of the pie. I am making 3 calzones from this so divide mixture in 3 parts.

then add some mozzarella on the mixture.

Now fold it with other half and make half moon.
Make sure you seal it properly so stuffing don't get out. Then prick it with fork lightly on dough so it doesn't get big.
Put it in the oven and bake it till it's nice brown on both side.

Cut it in half and serve it with marinara sauce and Red Wine on side.

BE VERY CAREFUL while eating cause inside will be piping hot.
