2 2/3 cups ricotta cheese
10 ounces ham, chopped
6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more or less for taste)
2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed and risen
Preheat oven to 375.
Stir ricotta cheese, ham, mozzarella cheese, and pepper until well blended.
Take each loaf of bread and either tear or cut into five pieces.
Flatten each piece of bread into a 5" circle.
(This part is tricky and with practice, it gets easier. I usually just use my hands to stretch the dough into a circle).
Place about a 1/4-1/2 C filling in center of bread and fold to one side.
Seal edges together by squeezing.
Place calzones on cookie sheets and brush with vegetable oil.
Cook for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.
I have also added in chopped onions, sliced mushrooms, sliced black olives, fresh spinach,… The limitations are up to you.
