1. Cook beef and next 3 ingredients in a large skillet, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink. Add Italian seasoning, salt and pepper; drain and remove from heat.
2. Divide dough evenly into 4 pieces; pat each dough piece into one square. Spoon beef mixture evenly onto each square, leaving a 1/2-inch border; top evenly with cheese.
3. Fold dough over filling until edges almost meet. Bring bottom edge over top edge; crimp edges of dough with fingers to form a rim. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
4. Bake at 450F for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve topped with marinara sauce.

Cooking Tip: Lightly brush calzones with olive oil before placing in the oven for a nice golden color and crisp texture. These calzones keep well in the fridge for leftovers, too.
