Quick Pepperoni Calzones

I made these pepperoni calzones for the kids’ lunchbox, and they were well received! 

1 cup chopped pepperoni 
½ cup pasta sauce 
¼ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (make sure it’s lactose-free) 
1 lb. pizza dough (thawed if frozen) 
1 to 2 Tbsp. 2% lactose-free milk 
1 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese 
½ tsp. Italian seasoning (optional; I used dried oregano and basil) 

Preheat oven to 350 °F. 

In a small bowl, mix pepperoni, pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese. 

On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 4 portions. Roll each into a 6-in. circle; top each with a scant 1/3 cup pepperoni mixture. Fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet (I just used a silpat). 

Brush milk over tops; sprinkle with parmesan cheese and, if desired, Italian seasoning. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
