How to make Goat Cheese and Peppers Pockets

1. Swirl a bit of olive oil in a pan. Add garlic, peppers and onions and cook until slightly softened, approx. 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Salt to taste.

2. As veggies cool, roll out dough on a lightly floured surface and split into 2 or 4 even pieces based on preference.  (Try the mini pockets by cutting dough with a glass or knife into smaller circles.)

3. Spread pepper mixture evenly between pieces of dough, followed by goat cheese.

4. Fold over and press edges of dough together with a fork. Lay on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

5. Whisk egg with milk. Brush mixture over each calzone and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

6. Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until top browns. Allow to rest at least 5 minutes before cutting.
