Calzone dough (see recipe - double batch)
1 10 ounce package frozen chopped broccoli
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 jars roasted red peppers, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 375. Grease 2 baking sheets. Cook broccoli according to package directions; drain well. Chop fine.
In a medium skillet, heat oil over low heat. Add garlic; saute' for 2 minutes. Add broccoli; cook, stirring until moisture has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
In a medium bowl, combine broccoli mixture, mozzarella, parmesan, roasted peppers, oregano, salt and pepper; mix well.
On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 8 pieces; roll out each piece to form a 6 inch circle. Spoon an equal amount of broccoli mixture in the center of each circle. Fold dough over filling to form a half circle. Press edges with a fork to seal; prick a few holes in calzone tops.
Place calzones on prepared baking sheets. Bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Serve immediately.
