Easy Calzone!

I tried to be fun and make this look like a Christmas tree over Christmas break and it did not turn out that way, but this was delish anyway!! The dough was perfect (and I am picky!) The prep was easy (and I am picky!) The kids loved it (and they are picky!)
The recipe came from Squidoo

2 1/2 to 3 cups flour (can use a combination of white and whole wheat if you prefer)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) yeast
3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 cup very warm water

Combine yeast, sugar, 1 cup of the flour, and salt in a large bowl. Add the warm water and oil and mix. Stir in remaining flour slowly until dough is soft but not sticky. Knead until smooth. Let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes before making the calzone.

Here is the step by step instructions for making a calzone.....

But here's a quick version,

1) Roll out like a rectangle

2) Cut about 2 inch lines on the sides of the dough. Make sure they will pull over the top to keep the filling inside.

3) Pull over the top criss cross alternating.

4) Bake 375 for 25-30 minutes.
