Caprese Calzones with Homemade Pizza Sauce

Caprese Calzones

1 tube refrigerated pizza crust ...or make your own!
2 Roma tomatoes, halved and sliced
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cubed
1/2 cup fresh basil chopped or torn
Your favorite pizza sauce for dipping
    Preheat oven to 425º F.
    Roll out pizza dough onto a non-stick or lightly floured surface and cut it into 4 equal squares. Layer each square with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. Fold in the 2 long sides of each square, pinching at the seams and the edges to seal the calzones. Place the calzones seam-side down onto a cookie sheet and bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
    Serve hot with dipping sauce.
