Preheat oven to 400° Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with either parchment paper or grease it with cooking spray.
Mix wet dough ingredients together and warm in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Add yeast. Let the mixture rest about 5 minutes until yeast becomes frothy.
Gradually add dry ingredients to the yeast mixture. Mix/knead until smooth. Add more flour if necessary.
Let the dough rise in a warm place for 30-60 minutes until dough has doubled in size.
Brown hamburger and drain grease. Add in diced onion and cook until onions are tender. Stir in spices and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a medium sized pot, melt butter. Add chopped cabbage, salt, and pepper. Heat until the cabbage is wilted. Add into the hamburger mixture and stir thoroughly.
Once dough has doubled. knead a few time to get the air bubbles out. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Roll out into circles about 1/4 inch in thickness.
On each rolled out piece of dough, place half of a single of cheese in the center of the dough circle. Place about a 1/2 cup of hamburger filling on top of the half single of cheese.
Fold sides of the dough up, pinching the sides together to seal each runza.
Bake 12-15 minutes at 400° Fahrenheit or until runzas are golden on the tops and underneath.
