I made this recipe but I did it using Pillsbury premade pizza dough (soo good by the way), without the bbq sauce and added mushrooms...thanks for an awesome idea!!! P.S. I LOVE recipes that are amazing as they are or that can be changed and varied by taste so definitely kudos to you.

This was a fun way to eat cheeseburgers! I slipped some pickles and chopped tomatoes in as well. I made my own crescent roll dough and rolled it out for individual calzones. Thanks for sharing!
