In a large bowl, combine the
Shredded Italian Blend Cheese (1 1/2 cups)
Ricotta Cheese (1/2 cup)
Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (1/2 cup)
Mushrooms (1/2 cup)
Italian Seasoning (1 tsp)

down and divide it into two equal portions. On a surface dusted with
All-Purpose Flour (to taste)
, roll each dough portion into an 8 by 10-inch oval.

Fold a short end of each dough oval over its filling, forming 2 half-moon shaped calzones. Roll the bottom edge up and over, twisting and pressing with your thumb to seal as you go.

Transfer the calzones to your prepared baking sheet, spacing at least 2 inches apart. Brush the tops with

Italian Seasoning (1/2 tsp)

Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool. Cut each calzone into four wedges. If desired, garnish with
