Caprese Calzone
1 tube refrigerated pizza crust …or make your own!
2 Roma tomatoes, halved and sliced
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cubed
1/2 cup fresh basil chopped or torn
Your favorite pizza sauce for dipping

Preheat oven to 425º F.

Roll out pizza dough onto a non-stick or lightly floured surface and cut it into 4 equal squares.

Layer each square with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil.

Fold in the 2 long sides of each square, pinching at the seams and the edges to seal the calzones.

Place the calzones seam-side down onto a cookie sheet and bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve hot with dipping sauce.
