    MadCatKim's Note:

    This is a quick & dirty weeknight supper recipe that is very filling and takes little effort to pull together. I really enjoy the taste of hamburger and spinach together.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Season ground beef with onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      Brown beef.
    4. 4
      Open pizza crust package and slice into 2 or 3 sections depending on how hungry you are!
    5. 5
      Stretch dough sections a bit to thin them out and to make room for the filling.
    6. 6
      Layer beef, cheese, and spinach on each dough section.
    7. 7
      Wrap dough around filling.
    8. 8
      Bake on a cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes until golden.
    9. 9
      Serve with warm tomato sauce for dipping.
    10. 10
      Tips: I like to wrap the crust around the filling so that all four sides overlap on top.
    11. 11
      Then I flip them over so that they bake on the overlapping sections to prevent the bottom from falling out.
    12. 12
      You can patch any thin spots before baking by pulling dough off the thick spots and pressing it over the thin area.

      I rate 5 stars for taste but three stars for ease of making.. I could NOT get the calzones to stop ripping~ I finally just made a pizza out of it! :) I'm going to keep trying though! Thanks for a tasty and different recipe!

      Very tasty! I used the Pilsbury light croissant dough and 2% cheese (colby/jack mix) to reduce calories from fat. I chopped up and cooked a small onion to add to the 1/2 pound of hamburger as well as 2 cloves of fresh garlic. I didn't notice that you said one cup of frozen spinach and used the entire 10 oz package. This produced eight little (baseball-size)calzones, using up every bit of the fillings. Then I mixed a can of the basil/garlic/oregano tomato sauce with a can of no salt tomato paste to create the dipping sauce. This dish was a hit with my 1 year old, 8 year old and dh. Thanks!

      We made these much smaller, using the croissant dough instead of pizza dough. My husband thought they may taste good with the sauce added into the mix instead of just for dipping. My three year old ate them up. We will definitely make these again! Thanks!
