Sealing Drywall hole where Gas Water heater vents

I have a gas water heater inside the house in a closet. It vents to the roof trough the ceiling with a single pipe. The pipe gets pretty hot. Currently there is a hole in the drywall about an inch in diameter larger than the pipe, leaving a large hole going into the attic. Whats the best method of sealing this up?

Depending on diameter of opening and pipe, there are large hinged escutcheons available for this purpose at the plumbing supply store.
