Now it's easier than ever to make restaurant-caliber calzones at home. Try these Easy Calzones and see for yourself!

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 (11-ounce) container refrigerated French bread dough
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices mozzarella cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large skillet, cook ground beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat until beef is crumbly and no pink remains; drain well then stir in spaghetti sauce and Italian seasoning.
     
  3. Unroll bread dough onto a lightly floured work surface; roll or press with your fingers to a 16-inch square. Cut dough into 4 even squares and transfer dough squares to baking sheet.
     
  4. Spoon equal amounts of meat mixture into center of each square and top each with a slice of mozzarella cheese. One square at a time, fold dough over to form a triangle, pressing edges to seal. Coat each with cooking spray, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
     
  5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Serve immediately.
Serving Tip

If you'd like, serve with additional warm spaghetti sauce.

I like to add mushrooms, olives, and either onions or bell pepper to my calzones. :)

also, I use refrigerated pizza dough instead of french bread dough (2 cans)

i can't wait to start making calzones for the kids this is great

Made homemade dough using bread machine pizza crust recipe. Doubled cheese, using mozzarella and provolone. Next time I would make more meat sauce. Great dinner!

These calzones are delicious. How ever had terrible time unrolling the French bread roll. Any sugestions would be helpful. Used lightly floured surface, and lightly floured hands. Bread just doesn't want to unroll. JN
