Serves Makes 2 calzones
1 cup fresh ricotta or part skim ricotta
A handful parsley, chopped
A handful basil, chopped
About 1/2 cup provolone cheese, shredded
2 cloves garlic, finely grated or minced
Fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
1 round pizza dough
Salt and pepper
EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat waffle maker to high heat.

In a medium bowl mix together ricotta cheese, parsley, basil, provolone, garlic, salt, pepper and a little EVOO.

Halve the room temperature dough and roll out the doughs into 8inch rounds. Spread 1/2 ricotta cheese mixture all over dough, leaving a inch around the edge. Lay a few slices of mozzarella across on side. With your finger, rub water around the edge of the round. Fold the dough over and crimp the edges.

Lay the calzone in the waffle maker and gently shut. But do not apply pressure. Let cook until brown or waffle maker sounds. Repeat for other piece of dough.

Serve with your favorite marinara sauce as a dipper.
