Big Bite Spinach Calzones

Big Bite Spinach Calzones 
  • 1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed  very dry
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tubes refrigerator pizza dough


  1. Preheat the oven to 400*
  2. Mix together the ricotta cheese, eggs, Italian seasoning, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and spinach. Set aside.
  3. Roll dough out into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle shape and spoon all the cheese mixture onto dough and spread evenly.  Roll several times across lengthwise and place seam side down onto a greased (foil lined for less clean up) cookie sheet.
  4. Brush the top of the roll with olive oil to encourage browning while baking.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until nicely browned on the tops and bottoms.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes then cut into 1-2 inch slices

I served mine with Tomato Mozzarella Slicers
