“Lamb, olives, feta, garlic- all stuffed inside a wonderful calzone. If you're in a hurry, substitute refrigerated pizza crusts, but I think its well worth it to make your own. So yummy! From BHG.”

  3. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly.
  4. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.
  5. Using a spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can (I usually never get all of the extra flour to work in).

  13. For the filling, cook lamb, onion, and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender.
  14. Drain fat.
  15. Stir in cinnamon.
  16. Spread pizza sauce on half of each dough circle to within 1 inch of edge.
  17. Sprinkle meat mixture over sauce.

  20. Fold dough in half over filling.
  21. Seal edges by pressing with tines of a fork.
