A Recipe: Meatball Calzone

I made this for lunch today and it was so quick, easy, and delicious I thought you guys might appreciate it.

Meatball Calzone adapted from Mr. Food
1 bag of frozen small to medium meatballs, thawed
1 jar of spaghetti sauce 1 bag Italian shredded cheese
1 tube pizza dough

Directions:  Preheat oven according to pizza dough package.  Cut the pizza dough into large enough pieces so that they can be folded over.  Place meatballs on dough, cover with spaghetti sauce and cheese.  Fold dough over to create pockets.  Cook according to pizza dough directions.

Here's what you'll need:
Roll out pizza dough onto a greased baking sheet.
Cut dough into large enough pieces so that it can be folded over.
Place meatballs on dough.
Cover with spaghetti sauce.
Add cheese.
Fold over making sure to close all holes so that the sauce doesn't seep out during cooking.
Spread out on baking dish.  Bake in oven according to directions.
Here's what you'll end up with:
Our Thoughts:
This was a perfect weekend lunch recipe.  When I first saw this recipe I thought that Scott and Kanin would love it because they love meatball sandwiches.
They both absolutely loved it.  It was so easy to make and took about 15 minutes with little prep. 
We will definitely make this over and over.  Perfect for kids!!

Hope you enjoy!
