Over low heat in a sauté pan, cook onion slowly for about 30 minutes until caramelized and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove to small bowl to cool.

Fold other half of circle over the mixture and seal by crimping the dough with a fork. Repeat process with remaining 3 calzones and place on baking sheet or pizza pan.
