To prepare these cross-cultural calazones (HA! my spell check tried to turn "calazones" into "lazybones". Apparently calazones are too multicultural for Google) you need to prepare a few things:
You could absolutely buy this ready made, but if you have a few hours to let it rise, it is incredibly cheap to make yourself.
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup lukewarm water
2 cups flour
splash of oil (I like olive for this)
Notice the bubbles on top of the dough, that means it ready. While the dough rises or whenever you like, make the meat mixture.
20 oz package of ground turkey
1/8 cup of prepared bbq sauce (you won't really taste it, it just does good things in there)
Heaping teaspoon grill seasoning
2 tablespoons chives (or parsley would work I just have an abundance of chives in my garden)
¼ cup grated onion
Directions: combine all the above ingredients just as you would to make hamburgers (which is what I did and how these left overs came to be).
6-8 cloves of roasted garlic or 2-3 cloves fresh garlic, diced
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chile powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 loose cup of shredded cheese ( I used cheddar and mozzarella)
Saute garlic and onion in the oil for a minute or 2, over med-high heat, until starting to turn translucent. Add the meat mixture to brown. When your turkey is cooked through, drain the fat and add the tomato paste, smoked paprika, chile powder, and oregano. Allow these ingredients to toast and cook and fully incorporate with the meat mixture, 2 minutes or so.

Now we are ready to assemble these beauties.
Divide your pizza dough into 2 Whoa-you-really-are-hungry portions, 3 still-really-big portions, or 4 normal person sized portions. You can see what I went with.

And come out looking like this. Yummy. And because dinner can't just be all meat pies, I made a salad. My garden lettuce is going crazy, so my salad is a simple lettuce, with cucumber and tomatoes from the farmer's market.
