- 1/2 lb pizza dough (You can buy it frozen or make it yourself - I used a mix)
- 1 10 oz frozen package of spinach (be sure to defrost before starting)
- 1/2 cup fat free Ricotta cheese
- 1/2 t garlic powder
- 1/2 t onion powder
- 1 t basil
- 1/8 t salt
- 4 oz mozzarella cheese
- Sauce for dipping (marinara or garlic butter are both great)
Preheat the oven to 425.
Separate the dough into two balls. Stretch and roll out the dough with a rolling pin.
Drain any excess water from the defrosted spinach and put in a large bowl. Mix in the ricotta, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, salt and mozzarella cheese.
Pour half the mixture on each piece of rolled-out dough. Fold over the edges of the dough and seal the edges. Then pierce the top with a knife a few times.
Put calzones on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for about 20 minutes until crust is firm.
Serve with dipping sauce such as marinara or garlic butter.
For a quick garlic butter sauce, melt some butter in a pan under low heat. Mix in minced garlic or garlic powder. If you want a golden, tasty crust on the calzones, brush on dough when they have 10 minutes left to bake. Or use garlic butter as a dipping sauce for serving.
