These easy beef calzones start with canned refrigerated pizza crust dough and are filled with ground beef, pepperoni, and two types of cheese.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut pepperoni slices in half, and set aside.

Step 2

Cook ground beef, onion, and garlic in a large skillet, stirring until beef crumbles; drain.

Step 3

Stir in tomato paste and next 3 ingredients; cook, stirring often, 5 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in pepperoni and cheeses.

Step 4

Combine egg and milk, stirring well; set aside.

Step 5

Unroll pizza crusts; cut each into 4 squares. Spoon 1/3 cup ground beef mixture onto each square, leaving a 1-inch border around edges; brush borders lightly with egg mixture. Fold in half diagonally, and press edges together to seal. Place on lightly greased baking sheets; brush tops of calzones with egg mixture.

Step 6

Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Kind of bland and ordinary. Not sure what it's missing...

Big hit! The whole family loved this one! My eleven-year-old loved helping me make this! Next time - I will omit the salt.

I wanted to make something different and never made calzones before. I tried this recipe and everything was so easy to make, and turned out great! However, it made way too much for two people, next time I will half the recipe.
