  • 1 Heat oven to 450ºF. Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir in pizza sauce.

Fold other half of each circle over filling. Press edges together with fork to seal. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Expert Tips

Make a double batch and freeze. You'll always be ready for extra guests, quick dinners or a midnight snack.

Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons Bisquick mix over a clean surface, such as a kitchen counter or breadboard, before you knead the dough.

Use a pizza cutter to cut calzones into wedges.

If you can't fit two cookie sheets side by side in your oven, bake one calzone while you make the second one.
