Brush all around the edges with the egg then fold the pastry over the filling, stretching it out a little if needed. Pinch the edges together really well with your fingers all the way around. Then crimp with a fork all the way around.

 

Brush beaten egg all over the tops of each calzone and make a few slits in the top with a knife to let out the steam.
