Homemade Calzone

I've been looking for a way to use the fresh mozzarella that I have leftover from the Grilled Onion & Red Pepper Sandwich that I made early last week. Then I stumbled upon this lovely looking calzone on Pinterest and decided that a calzone would be a perfectly delicious way to use up the leftover mozzarella cheese.

-Package of Pizza Dough
-Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
-1 Egg
-Garlic Powder
-Italian Seasoning

Preheat your oven to 375.

Mix dough according to package directions.

Slice the mozzarella as thin as possible.

Spread out the dough in a rectangular shape of a foil lined baking sheet.

Spread marinara sauce down the center.
Top with the mozzarella.
Cut the sides into strips and  fold them across the center.
Once the toppings are covered, brush the top with the egg wash and sprinkle Italian Seasoning and Garlic Powder on top.
Ready to bake.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until the top is crispy.

Slice and serve.

The calzone was pretty good and it was great to use fresh mozzarella. It's best served as a light lunch or dinner if it's going to be split three ways because overall the portions weren't very filling.
