This is a great thing to make ahead to put in lunch boxes or on the go. Not very messy at all if you're on the run. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. My dad was coming to pick up some stuff around lunch time on his way out to the cabin so I wanted to make him something he could sit down and eat or take with him if he wanted to. Homemade HOT POCKETS! were perfect.

Of course all these measurements are approx. since I don't measure very often.

Mix well: 9 oz ricotta cheese, 1/2 C broccoli florets (I use frozen), 1 chopped roasted yellow or red pepper, 1/4 C chopped parsley or basil leaves (optional), and any other ingredients you want...pepperoni, corn, zucchini, sausage, ground beef, Parmesan cheese (1 oz), etc. - about 1/2 C of one or more of those.  
Roll out pizza dough (even if it's the refrigerator kind) and cut into quarters. Spoon 1/4 ricotta mixture on 1/2 of each piece of dough, leaving 1/2 inch border.
Top with 2 T mozzarella each.
Fold other half of dough over filling. Pinch edges together tightly to seal and transfer to pizza stone or greased cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated oven 475 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes. I cooked them for 15 min & it was a little too long. Still really good though!

Okay, here is a recipe that I need you to "veganize" for me...Tomato Basil Soup.
