I cannot imagine anything more delicious than a pizza pocket...except of course a cheese stuffed crust pizza. Or perhaps a Stromboli! But this is knock your socks off yummy and the entire family will agree with me. You can whip up the EVOO Fridge dough way in advance, then literally cook to order, based on what everyone likes in their calzone. You can fill your calzone with any favorite pizza toppings of your choice. Feel free to add pestos, other cheeses, roasted veggies such as eggplant, pumpkin or zucchini, meats etc., as desired.
And please, use your hands to eat, and whenever you say "Calzone!" It is truly the only way to enjoy them.

To assemble Calzone
Divide dough in 2-4 pieces or or reserve some remaining dough in the fridge until the next pizza day. Roll each piece out into large circle on a piece of baking paper. Sprinkle with a little grated cheese and arrange some red capsicum over.
Divide the ricotta and spread on top, and then add mushroom mixture. Repeat with grated cheese, and the remaining capsicum.
Roll other half of dough into a large circle and lay over the top of the pizza. Bring base dough up and over the top dough and pinch all the way around to seal edges.
Slide onto the pizza stone and cook for approximately 25-30 minutes until golden all over.
Slice into large wedges and serve immediately.
