Beat with electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and almost smooth, 1 to 2 mins. Stir in chocolate chips. 2. Unfold puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured pastry cloth and trim corners of each to make a 9- to 9½-inch round. Place rounds on a baking sheet. Sppon half of ricotta filling mixture on half of each pastry round to within 1 inch of edges. Top each with half of strawberry slices. With a pastry brush or fingers, spread some of beaten egg around edges of pastry.
Fold pastry round in half like a turnover to form a half-moon shape.
Pinch edges to seal. Brush top of calzones with more beaten egg. 3.
