To Make Filling; combine the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, basil, and Parmesan, and refrigerate. Saute your veggies (if using) in 1 tsp oil until desired texture (they will cook a bit more in the Calzone). Add garlic, Mix well, and refrigerate to chill.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
When dough is ready, punch it down and separate it into 2 equal parts. Then do it again to get 4 portions. With your hands, press parts out into thin circles on a lightly floured surface. Fill each circle with 1/4 of the cheese/meat filling and 1/4 veggie filling. Fold over each of 4 corners, securing edges by folding in and pressing with a fork. Brush the top of each Calzone with egg and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20 minutes. Serve hot.
