Calzone (trousers)

My Master Pizza Dough Recipe OR 2 pizza doughs frozen/defrosted OR 2 pizza doughs from a Bakery

a few scrapes of nutmeg
1 egg
2 cups ricotta whole milk
4 oz. mozzarella ( 1 cup)
¼ cup parmesan
1T. fresh chopped parsley
OPTIONAL:1/2 pound chopped meat such as ham or salami (Our favorite!)
OPTIONAL:1 cup chopped greens such as arugula
OPTIONAL: 4 ounces chopped provolone
OPTIONAL: 3 tablespoons rinsed and dried capers (This goes well with the arugala)
Mix your filling and set aside.
grease 1 pan or place a piece of parchment on pan and place stone in oven
set oven to 550
cut the dough into 6 -8 pieces
roll out each piece to a circle
place 1/6 or 1/8 of mixture in lower middle section of circle and slightly wet bottom edge of the circle with a wet fork:If you add any extra ingredients to the filling you will not be able to use it all because if you use too much filling they will burst (step 1)
Wet edges of one side of the circle with a wet fork
flip over top half (step 2)
fold over edges & press down (step 3)
crimp with a wet fork (step 4)
Pierce with a fork gently (step 5)
slide on stone (step 6)
Bake 10 minutes
Brush w/ butter and garlic and serve with sauce (step7)
fry in 375 canola oil until golden and then flip and fry other side. Drain on paper towels. This is my family's favorite way to eat them and the only way my Dad ever cooked them!! This is also what you see in the first photo.
