Italian Baked Hamburgers with Cheese (i.e. Calazones)
8 servings

2 loaves of pizza dough or thawed frozen bread dough
1/2 lb ground beef (ground round or other low fat ground beef)
1/4 - 1/3 cup dried tomatoes
1 cup shredded mozerrella cheese
2 cups spinach (wash it and cook it; chop coarsely)
1-2 cloves garlic
1 tbl (or less) olive oil
parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Refresh the tomatoes in hot water and chop them.

Crush and saute garlic in olive oil. Add the ground beef. Cook.
Drain off excess oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Take each loaf of pizza dough or bread dough and cut it into 4
pieces. Pat, roll or stretch each piece into a 6-9" circle.

Filling the calazones: Be sure to keep all filling at least 1/4"
from the edge or else you will have trouble sealing them. Place
1-2 tbl of meat on half of the dough. Add some tomato bits and
spinach. Top with 1 tbl cheese and a bit of parmesan.

Dip your fingers into warm water. Wet the edge of the dough.
Stretch half of the dough over the filling and press the edges to
seal. Either use your fingers or a fork to seal them. Or you can
roll the bottom edge up over the top edge, twisting them together
like a rope around the edge. This method in slightly more time
consuming, but the calazones generally don't leak.

Place calazones on a baking sheet that has been greased or covered
with cornmeal. Let them rise in a warm place for 30-60 minutes.
Brush lightly with oil. Bake 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
