  • Roll each half out on a floured surface to a 12-inch circle.
  • Spread half of the ricotta filling over half of each circle of dough, leaving about a 1/2-inch margin.
  • Fold circles in halves over filling.
  • Moisten edges and pinch together [or press edges together with tines of fork] to seal.
  • Sprinkle a large, greased baking sheet lightly with cornmeal.
  • Place calzones well apart on prepared baking sheet.
  • Let rise until puffy (12 to 15 minutes).
  • Brush tops lightly with olive oil.
