THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #11 and Cheesy Hamburger Calzone

Pizza - Pizza - Pizza

The second week of January is National Pizza Week. Who says so? The American Food Calendar, that's who! I just think it's amazing to have National Food Days, kind'of fun and just a little crazy, but cool none-the-less! It's a weird time of the year for PIZZA, I would think summer time would be more appropriate, not the cold days of winter. But, pizza is good any time of year.

I made this really awesome BBQ Pizza last year and you MUST check it out if you are a PIZZA Lover! It is now our ALL-TIME favorite way to make pizza at home. Since, I had already blogged about our FAVORITE way to have pizza, I had to try something new for today's post, a PIZZA theme.

We started with this Pizza Sauce Recipe that we came across accidentally, but that we now use for ALL pizza's made at our home. And looked through piles of recipe books before we picked this simple, easy and just plain ole' delicious Calzone Pizza.

Cheesy Hamburger Calzone
adapted from Pillsbury Classic Cookbooks Crescents Biscuits & More (March 2004)

Favorite Pizza Sauce (or from a jar)
1/2 lb hamburger meat (or you can use sausage, pepperoni or your favorite topping)
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 can Pillsbury Grand refrigerated biscuits
1/2 cup shredded cheese 

Heat oven to 375. In skillet, cook meat, onion and bell pepper over medium heat 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until meat is no longer pink; drain. Separate dough. On ungreased large cookie sheet, press each biscuit into round disk. (my only complaint is that they are very small calzones, but would be great for lunch size pizza's) Top half of each biscuits with sauce, meat mixture and cheese to within 1/2 inch of edge. Fold dough over filling; press edges firmly with fork to seal. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm calzones.
