I just stretch out the dough and put my fillings in. Cheese is a must, then just about anything else you like. Fold the dough over to seal it all in and cut a coule of vent holes in the top. Preheat the over to at least 450, but higher if you like. Bake until golden brown.

I roll the dough into a rectangle and place Italian cold cuts on it. Cappacola, genoa salami, provolone, mortadella...

Fold it up, sealing the edges tightly. I brush it with egg to make it shiny (optional).

You can use all kinds of fillings. Meatballs and sauce, ham and swiss, roasted veggies, mozzarella, basil and tomato slices...

I baked mine at 375, and it turned out great. But ovens are different.

Is it a homemade pizzadough? If it is, it is suggested to bake in a high temperature, just like pizza, 225C/450F and above if possible, and bake until golden brown... more or less like GB sugested. If it is a readymade dough, just follow the instruction on the package...

stretch the doug to a circle. When you mix the ricotta cheese, mix in a beaten egg. This will help bind the cheese and prevent it from watering out. Mix mozzarella and fresh chopped flat parsley along with some grated parmesan into the ricotta. Seal the edges and let it rest for awhile. I like to fry them first to give them a nice golden colour, then finish baking in the oven.

What about using puff pastry for this? or, what is that layered dough? How about using that?
