Easy Homemade Calzones

I made this recipe on a whim.  These calzones were amazing, I'm thinking we will be making these a lot!  This recipes made 6 calzones.

1 recipe Thin Crust Pizza Dough 
1/3 cup Ricotta
1 cup Shredded Mozzarella
1/4 tsp Italian Seasoning
Toppings of Choice
1 Egg
Pizza Sauce for Dipping

Heat oven to 425. In a small bowl mix together the ricotta, mozzarella and italian seasoning.  Divide the pizza dough into 6 equal parts.  Roll out the pizza dough, layer a few toppings, add approximately 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture and more toppings on top. Fold the dough over and press the edges together then roll the edges slightly. Repeat with each calzone. Place the calzones on a greased cookie sheet.  In a small bowl whisk the egg. Using a pastry brush, brush the egg onto the calzones.  Bake in the oven for 10 to 20 minutes or until the calzones are nice and browned. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
