    Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground chicken and chopped onion. Brown completely, breaking up the meat as you go. Once the meat is browned throughout and the onions are soft, add the water and taco seasoning. Give everything a good stir and simmer until the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.

    Unroll the pizza dough and cut it into 4 squares. Fold the corners over so you create an oval shape. Working on one half of the oval, spread some cheese. Now top with taco meat, refried beans, salsa and then more cheese. Fold the top half of the dough over the filling and pinch the seams together with your fingers to seal the filling inside. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.

    Bake the calzones for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and top each calzone with fresh tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro, lettuce and sour cream.
