Chicken and two-pepper Calzones

1 lb pizza dough
(purchased or prepared)
8 Tbls tomato sauce
1 red pepper, roasted and chopped
1 green pepper, roasted and chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 C cooked, shredded chicken
1 C shredded mozzarella
1 tsp oregano

Preheat oven to 450°.

Divide pizza dough into 4 pieces (I used my own homemade dough, recipe is posted). Stretch each piece into a 7" circle. In the center of each, spread 2 Tbls tomato sauce and sprinke with oregano and salt. Top with chopped peppers, onions, and shredded chicken, spreading evenly to within ½" of the edges of dough. Top with mozzarella. Fold circles over to make half-moons; firmly press edges to seal.

Bake 15 minutes or until top crusts are lightly browned.

Obviously, you could come up with endless combinations of what to use as fillings for the calzones...try different meats and veggies as well as different cheeses and sauces for endless variety! :)
