Directions:
To make dough: in a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water; add the oil, sugar, and salt. Mix in 1 C. of the flour until smooth. Gradually stir in the rest until dough is smooth and workable. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes. Lay dough in a bowl containing 1 tsp of olive oil. Then flip, cover, & let rise for about 40 minutes.

To Make Filling: While dough is rising, combine the ricotta cheese, Cheddar cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms and basil leaves in a large bowl. Mix well, cover bowl and refrigerate to chill.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

When dough is ready, punch it down and separate it into 2 equal parts. Roll parts out into thin circles on a lightly floured surface. Fill each circle with 1/2 of the cheese/meat filling and fold over, securing edges by folding in and pressing with a fork. Brush the top of each calzone with egg and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
