Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 pound extra-lean ground sirloin
    2 Tablespoons beef broth
    3/4 cup frozen chopped onion
    1 teaspoon bottled minced (dried) garlic
    1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
    1/4 tsp onion powder, or to taste
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
    3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
    4 tsp shredded parmesan
    1 1/3 cups pasta sauce (Simple Tomato Sauce)


Preheat oven to 400░.

Cook beef, broth, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain. Return to pan, and add Italian seasoning, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Unroll pizza crust onto an ungreased baking sheet. Cut dough into 4 squares. Press each square into a 6 x 5-inch rectangle. Spoon beef mixture evenly into center of each rectangle; sprinkle evenly with cheeses. Bring opposite corners of rectangles together, pinching seams together to seal. Coat tops of calzones with cooking spray.

Bake at 400░ for 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Place pasta sauce in a microwave-safe dish; microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve calzones with warm pasta sauce.

Serving Size:áMakes 4 servings, 1 calzone and 1-1/3 cup sauce each
