Anita --- Baked Chicken Calzones

The great thing about calzones is that beyond the basics, you can add and subtract what you like. Stuff this pizza-like pastry with your favorite toppings.

1            10 ounces package refrigerated pizza dough
1/4         cup prepared pesto
6            tablespoons  ricotta cheese
1-1/2     ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (scant 1/2 cup)
1           ounces sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1           boneless, skinless chicken breast half, cut into bite-size pieces
1           teaspoon grated Parmesan/Romano mixture
2-1/2     tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil Parsley sprigs for garnish

1 .   Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

2 .   Unroll pizza dough and place on greased baking sheet. Layer pesto, cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes and chicken breast pieces in middle of dough. 

3 .   Lift one edge of dough and stretch over the filling to form a half-moon. Seal edges by pressing with tines of fork or pizza wheel, and make a fluted edge around the seal.

Prick top with fork to allow steam to escape. Brush with olive oil. Bake in preheated oven 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley.
