I made these last night, they were a hit! I thought I would share them with you:

2 Tbsp. yeast
2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup oil
2 tsp. salt
5-6 1/2 cups flour

optional filling choices:
shredded mozzarella cheese

start yeast 5 minutes. Add other ingredients. Mix until well blended about 3 minutes (I use a kitchen aid mixer) Rest dough 30 minutes. Divide dough into 12 equal parts. Pat into 7 " circle. Fill with choice of filling Carefully fold over filling; pinch edges to seal. Let rest 15 minutes; brush with beaten egg (I used egg white). Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

The fun thing about these are they are FILLING! Each of us had one, (they were all varying sizes because well...I can't cut dough evenly....) there was enough for everyone to take one (the kids took halves) in their lunches today, and STILL have leftovers... this was my first time ever making calzones, it was fun, a little work, but SO worth it! Enjoy!
