  3. On a floured surface, roll out each portion of the pizza dough into thin circles not more than 1/4" thick. Place them on a greased baking tray. Spoon some filling on one side of each circle. Top with mozzarella chunks and parmesan slices. Brush the edges with a little water and fold over each circle so as to form a semi-circle. Squeeze the edges or press well with a fork to seal.
