Secondly, I am guest posting over at Mama's blog today! I made calzones last night and Mama made a homemade marinara sauce!
This recipe made two calzones.
Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes (or until golden)
Easy Spinach Calzones
2 prepared pizza doughs
2 packages of spinach (10 ounces each)
1 medium-large onion, finely chopped
5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 cup ricotta cheese
½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
½ cup mozzarella, shredded
About 8-10 slices of deli ham, cut into long strips
Salt & Pepper to taste
Approximately 4 tablespoons Olive Oil
Dashes of Living the Gourmet Dry Herb Rub
In an extra large skillet on medium low heat, drizzle about 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Add onion and sauté until tender and golden. Then add garlic and spinach, sautéing until large clumps are broken up. Add salt and pepper.
Transfer the dough to a medium bowl and let cool. Once cool enough, stir in ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, and ham.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare 2 cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper and sprinkling paper with cornmeal. Set aside.
Flour the pizza dough and work the dough using your fists into a large circle, do not roll the dough out, about 12 inch circles. Fill one half side with spinach mixture and fold over. Press the edges with a fork to seal the calzone.
Transfer the dough onto cookie sheets. With fork press the edges and seal. Rub each calzone with a tablespoon of olive oil and bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
While calzones are baking, prepare marinara sauce, which my Mom has posted on her blog, Living the Gourmet.
I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!
