Every since Kindergarten started and my calendar got PACKED like most moms with school age children- I feel like a superstar any night I can get a home made meal on the table. It’s true. So I love quick and easy meals because usually it is the last minute and I just need something on the table fast because people are starving! These are a new family favorite and the leftovers (if there are any) are amazing as well! Check out these Sloppy Joe Calzones made with only 4 ingredients!
These are so simple to put together and the main ingredient is probably something you have in the pantry already- I know I always have a couple of cans of MANWICH on hand just in case! In addition I used some pizza dough, carrots and ground turkey. Parmesan cheese is an optional 5th ingredient and I put it on about half of mine so there were choices.
It was easy to grab all these ingredients at my weekly Walmart trip because they are all kitchen staples!
First things first, I got the ground turkey on the heat to brown and I started cutting up the carrots. When I am sneaking carrots into things I like to make sure that they are smaller than whatever I am trying to hide them in and in this case I used a potato peeler to peel small strips that I then chopped up.
Once the ground turkey is about done, I tossed in the carrots to soften for a couple of minutes.
Then all I had to do was add the MANWICH! Love this stuff because it is so easy to turn a couple of ingredients into a meal!
I heated that through and then turned the heat off so it could cool a bit before I put it on the pizza dough. In the meantime, I rolled out the pizza dough and since I was serving this at a play date, I used fun shaped cookie cutters. The great thing about this is that you can make them in any size or shape, if you were really in a hurry, you could even just fill up half of the dough and fold the entire piece over and make one large calzone! Spoon on your filling and add any extra cheese you might like, most of my daughter’s friends opted out of cheese.
Then add the other side and seal the edges with a fork!
I put mine on a parchment lined baking sheet and cooked it at 375 for about 15 minutes- they were delish!
