Easiest Calzone Ever

Calzones don’t get any easier than this and especially since there are only 5 ingredients.  Serve with tomato sauce for dipping and add any ingredients you like.  I buy marinara sauce from my favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant and it’s the next best thing to being there.  Extra sauce freezes well and you can use it again 4 an easy spaghetti dinner another night.

This makes one big Calzone that you cut into 3 or 4 pieces depending on how hungry you are!  Start with Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza Dough that you can pick up at any grocery store.  Mix together ricotta, mozzarella, and garlic, and pop it in the oven to bake.  Parents and kids will both enjoy this one.
