Cheeseburger Calzones ~ Our Cozy Den

Cheeseburger Calzones is a family favorite recipe in our house! The kids love it because it’s delicious, and I love it because it’s SO much cheaper than regular cheeseburgers!

Here’s the recipe so you can make some of your own! {This recipe makes 6 adult-sized servings, so feel free to halve or double it as needed. It also reheats really well and freezes well if you want to make extra for other meals!}

Ingredients:

Dough

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp yeast
  • 1½ cups warm water
  • 1/3 cup oil

Filling

  • ½ pound ground beef
  • salt, pepper, and onion powder
  • sliced cheese
  • your favorite cheeseburger toppings

 

Instructions:

Combine all the dough ingredients. Stir it until it is well mixed, then roll it out on a flat surface. Add more flour as necessary, and roll until it is about ¼ inch thick. Then cut into 6 sections. (If you are cooking for adults + children, you can make some of them bigger than others, and littler ones for the kids.)

Transfer the dough sections to a cookie sheet. Put a spoonful of ground beef onto one side of the dough.

Then add your favorite condiments: ketchup, mayo, mustard, pickle, etc. Cheeseburger Calzones ~ Our Cozy Den

Top with a slice of cheese. Cheeseburger Calzones ~ Our Cozy Den

Then fold over the other side, and pinch the seam tightly closed. I carve initials in the top of each one so we know whose is whose. I also like to spritz olive oil on the top of the closed calzones.
