Tex-Mex Calzones


For 4 people

  • 16 ounce(s) ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup(s) onion, chopped finely
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) dark chili powder
  • 1/2 cup(s) red bell pepper, chopped finely
  • 12 tablespoon(s) salsa verde, fire roasted
  • 11 ounce(s) can pizza dough, refrigerated, thin crust (use whole wheat if you can find it)
  • 1 cup(s) Mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg white, beaten


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Adjust oven rack to upper third of the oven. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ground turkey and cook 5 minutes, stirring to crumble. Add onion and garlic; continue to cook for an additional 4-5 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add spices and cook for 1 minute to bring out the flavors in the spices. Add chopped pepper; continue to cook 1 minute. Remove mixture from heat and stir in salsa. Unroll dough and divide into 4 equal portions. Working with one rectangle at a time place, 1/2 cup of turkey mixture on half of the dough then top with 2 tablespoons of cheese. Using a pastry brush or fingers, brush the egg mixture on the border of the dough. Fold dough over turkey mixture and press with a fork to seal. If you prefer a crisp crust, brush some additional egg wash over the top of the calzone. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Lower Carb Suggestion: Individual Serving
Place 1/2 cup of turkey mixture into an oven safe ramekin dish. Top with cheese and a quarter size portion of the dough. Bake 10 minutes.
