  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir ground beef and onion in a skillet over medium heat until the meat is crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain grease.
  3. Combine ground beef mixture, chicken, tomato, mushrooms, and ripe olives in a bowl. Stir spaghetti sauce into ground beef mixture. Lightly mix mozzarella, sharp Cheddar, and Parmesan cheeses into the filling.
  4. Place a pie crust flat onto a work surface; spread with half the cream cheese, leaving an edge about 1/2-inch deep without cream cheese. Spoon half the filling over cream cheese. Fold the crust over the filling to make a large half moon-shaped calzone; press the edges together with a fork. Cut several slits in the top of the calzone to vent steam. Repeat with second crust and remaining filling. Place calzones onto a baking sheet. Brush tops with olive oil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is hot, about 25 minutes. Sprinkle tops with Italian seasoning; return to oven and bake until crusts are lightly golden brown, about 5 more minutes. Let calzones stand for 5 minutes before cutting into servings.

5 for quick and easy! We liked it and will make again. We tweaked the ingredients some - based on who liked what - which made it even more convenient for a family with different taste buds.


Very good! As the other review said, you could tweak the filling and it would still be an easy, yummy calzone. We liked the pie crust vs a pizza doughy bread crust. Next time I'll add pepperoni bits instead of chicken, maybe even add pineapple bits :-)


I used a jar of pizza sauce and that was just the right amount. I also changed around the ingredients for our liking.
