Tex-Mex Calzones

In my quest to keep dinner somewhat exciting, while still watching calories, I have been trying many different dishes. We really enjoyed this dish and it will probably be a regular from now on. I was thinking if you have older kids, it might be a fun thing for them to make their own calzone.
8 ounces of ground turkey
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 fat-free sour cream

1. Preheat oven to 425°.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring to crumble.
3. 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.
4. Unroll dough; divide into 4 equal portions. Flatten each portion into a 6 x 4–inch rectangle.
5. 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.
6. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining dough and turkey mixture.
7. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until browned. Serve with sour cream.
