I didn''t use the Ragu pizza sauce but instead a chunker pasta sauce (Classico tomato-basil) which I think was good. I also added chicken and ham.

Thank you for a wonderful recipe, All I did was cut the dough into individual sizes and allow everyone to choose thier toppings. My out of town relatvies now think I'm a wonderful cook, and can't wait to come back for another visit. Thanks again.

I may have rated this before, but I had to come back and add....I made a chicken calzone, fried the chicken with a little olive oil, garlic and basil. Shredded the chicken, added chopped onion, green olive and sliced mushrooms, with a bit of mozzarella and feta, marinara was AWESOME!!!!! I like it even better than all the veggie and pepperoni calzones I made before. I'm going to continue to make this over and over and over! So good!
