Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. On a floured surface, roll out each piece of dough into a 6-inch circle. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together ricotta cheese, eggs, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, spinach, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the filling onto each circle, leaving a 1-inch border along the bottom half of the dough circle. With wet fingertips, moisten the bottom border. Fold dough over filling; press to seal. Place on a large parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Everyone in the family loved these calzones. I added in some pasta sauce into the spinach mixture. I also used refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (because that's what I had in the house). We dipped them in a bit of the extra pasta sauce. Yum!

I didn't leave these in for even half the time, and they were burnt to a crisp. The filling was good, though.

Very good for the whole family with a side of pizza sauce. I wish the dough got a little crispier. I had enough filling to make another four calzones!

I really like this! The bread was fantastic. But I agree, a marinara sauce would make it even better.

The dough was really tasty, but I would have preferred a red sauce to dip them in. Overall - very good.

The flavor was good, but they were a little dry. I would brush them with some garlic-infused olive oil a few minutes before they're ready to leave the oven. You could also mix some cottage cheese in with the ricotta to up the moisture and creaminess.
