Pizza Calzones

Today I tried another new recipe, Pizza Calzones. It's from Bisquick, and I know that I will be making it again. I served it with fried zucchini(fried in olive oil butter with salt and pepper) and applesauce.

Here's the recipe:
1 pound lean ground beef
3/4 cup pizza sauce
5 cups Original Bisquick® mix
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Grated Parmesan cheese with garlic and herbs

1. Heat oven to 450ºF. Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir in pizza sauce.
2. Stir Bisquick mix, water and oil until dough forms (dough will be dry). Place dough on surface generously dusted with Bisquick mix; gently roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into ball; knead 5 times.
3. Divide dough in half. Roll or pat each half into 12-inch circle. Place each dough circle on ungreased cookie sheet. Top half of each circle with Cheddar cheese. Top cheese with beef mixture. Fold other half of each circle over filling. Press edges together with fork to seal. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to wire rack. Cool 5 minutes. Cut each calzone into 5 wedges.
