what you need
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) prepared marinara sauce
  • 1/2 small carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, divided
make it
1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position. Preheat oven to 425 F. Sprinkle cornmeal on large cookie sheet. Set aside.

2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, celery, garlic and salt. Cook, stirring, 3 minutes, until vegetables soften. Stir in ground beef, breaking up with the back of the spoon. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, until beef is no longer pink. Add marinara sauce and carrot, stirring until combined. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl; cool 15 to 20 minutes, until room temperature. Makes 4 cups.

3. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into four 7-inch circles. Spread 1/2 cup of the meat filling in bottom half of dough circle, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the parmesan. Fold top half of circle over filling to make a semicircle. Fold edge over and flute. Transfer Calzone to prepared sheet. Refrigerate. Repeat process with remaining dough and 1 1/2 cups filling. Brush top of each Calzone with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.

For another batch of Calzones or a pasta topper: Freeze remaining 2 cups filling in a microwave-proof bowl for up to 2 weeks. To reheat: Microwave on high 5 to 6 minutes.
Look for fresh or frozen pizza dough at a neighborhood bakery, pizza parlor or supermarket.
