Meaty Calzones

Oxmoor House
Prep: 7 minutes; Cook: 21 minutes. Prepare the pizza dough rectangles while the beef mixture cooks so that you can spoon hot beef directly from the skillet onto the dough.
4 servings (serving size: 1 calzone and 1/3 cup pasta sauce)

1/2 pound ground round
3/4 cup frozen chopped onion
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella or reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
Cooking spray
1 1/3 cups pasta sauce


Preheat oven to 400°.

Cook beef, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain. Return to pan, and add Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Unroll pizza crust onto an ungreased baking sheet. Cut dough into 4 squares. Press each square into a 6 x 5-inch rectangle. Spoon beef mixture evenly into center of each rectangle; sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bring opposite corners of rectangles together, pinching seams together to seal. Coat tops of calzones with cooking spray.

Bake at 400° for 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Place pasta sauce in a microwave-safe dish; microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve calzones with warm pasta sauce.
