Tex-Mex Calzones

by Erika Nicole Kendall

8  ounces  ground turkey breast
1/2  cup  chopped onion
1/2  cup  chopped green bell pepper
1/2  cup  chopped red bell pepper
3/4  teaspoon  ground cumin
1/2  teaspoon  chili powder
2  garlic cloves, minced
1/2  cup  fat-free fire-roasted salsa verde
1  (11-ounce) can refrigerated thin-crust pizza dough
3/4  cup  (3 ounces) preshredded Mexican blend cheese
Cooking spray
1/4  cup  sour cream

Preheat oven to 425°.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring to crumble. Add onion and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) to pan; cook 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring mixture occasionally. Remove turkey mixture from heat; stir in salsa.

Unroll dough; divide into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 6 x 4–inch rectangle. Working with one rectangle at a time, spoon about 1/2 cup turkey mixture on one side of dough. Top with 3 tablespoons cheese; fold dough over turkey mixture, and press edges together with a fork to seal. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining dough and turkey mixture. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until browned. Serve with sour cream.
