Beef and Cheese Calzone


1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 cup italian cheese blend
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 package refrigerated pizza dough


Heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Drain any excess fat.  Add salt and pepper while browning meat.

While beef is cooking chop up the peppers and onions.

After beef is done, add peppers and onions and saute until done.

Add beef back to the pan and add the tomato sauce.

Combine all ingredients and let simmer about 5 minutes.

Sprinkle cornmeal evenly over rimmed baking sheet.  Unroll pizza dough lengthwide on baking sheet.  Spoon beef filling over long half of dough, leaving about a 1 inch border on three sides.

Sprinkle cheese over the meat.

Gently pull top half of dough over filling to enclose, pinch dough edges to seal.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before slicing.
