“This recipe came from meals.com. Using the pre-made dough makes these much quicker, and they are so yummy. I frequently "customize" the ingredients, but am posting the original recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup marinara sauce or 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package prepared pizza crust
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  3. Brown the meat, drain and transfer to mixing bowl.
  4. Add marinara and Italian seasoning; mix together well.
  5. Add salt and pepper.
  6. Make 4 circles from the dough, approx.
  7. 8 inches in diameter.
  8. Place circles on baking sheet and spoon 1/4 of the meat mixture onto each circle, being careful not to place too close to the edge (it won't seal and your fillings will leak out).
  9. Top each circle with 1/4 of the cheese.
  10. Fold over one edge and press down to seal, using your finger or an oiled wooden spoon handle.
  11. Brush top of calzone with a mixture of beaten egg and water.
  12. Bake for 15 minutes, or until crust is golden.
