Ham and Chili-Cheese Calzones

A great alternative to the ham and cheese sandwich, Henry’s Ham and Chili-Cheese Calzone will leave you wanting more!

450g frozen pizza dough (thawed)
100g ricotta cheese
150g mozzarella cheese
300g chopped ham
1 / 2 red chili seeded (optional, sweet chili is a good alternative)
Salt and pepper

Preheat a large baking sheet in a 240C oven for 10 minutes and carefully spray it with oil. Meanwhile, on a lightly floured work surface, roll or stretch each ball of dough into a 9-inch round.
Mix both cheeses and the chili together in a bowl with a small amount of salt and pepper.
Top half of each circle with the chili cheese mix and ham, leaving a one-inch edge all the way around.
Moisten the edge of the dough with water, and fold the untopped side over the filling. Then seal the edges by pressing down with the tines of a fork. Finish by cutting slits in the centre of each calzone to allow the steam to escape.
Bake at 240C for 10 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. For additional cheesy goodness, top with cheddar or mozzarella cheese with 5 minutes left on in the cooking process!
