Ingredients:  
1- Pizza dough ( home made or store bought which ever you prefer)
2 - Pizza Cheese ( I used delicious mozzarella)
3 - Parmesan Cheese for topping

1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning

Directions:
Directions:
1- Before you begin, Lay out parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat they length of your jelly roll pan.. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP! Dust the parchment with flour.
2- Cut the batch of dough in half and roll out the first ball of dough in a lengthy oval. You are not rolling a circle like a regular pizza. When the dough is about 1/4 in. thick, take your pizza cutter and slice little strips toward the
3- Next, fill the center section with a thick pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese blend, and your favorite toppings. I chose pepperoni and fresh basil. I NEVER make any type of pizza without fresh basil!
4- To “braid” the dough you just start with the top. Fold the very top edge down slightly to form a seal.
5- Brush cut strips with water to help them stick to each other when you start to braid. Take the first right strip and fold over the width of the the calzone and tuck under. Next, take the first left strip and cross over to the right, and tuck underneath. Repeat steps down the whole length of the calzone.
6- Take both sides of the parchment paper or Silpat and transfer the calzones to you baking sheet.
7- Bake at 425 for 12 – 14 minutes or until top crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately brush with Garlic Butter.
