Three-Cheese Calzone

Hot Tips for Cooking With Cheese From Food Network Kitchens’ Katherine Alford:

Ricotta is high in moisture, so when it’s baked on a crust (think calzones, pizza or savory pies), it can make the dough soggy.

The crumbs will absorb excess liquid from the cheese and keep the crust dry.
