    WJKing's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from one published in Taste of Home magazine. It's delightful in that you can substitute, add or remove the filling ingredients to suit your particular tastes. Enjoy! Prep time doesn't include 1 hour dough rising time. My children (ages 5 & 4) LOVE this recipe - no complaints about the spinach! HOORAY!

      Very Good! I wasn`t sure how my family would like the spinach, but I didn`t get one complaint. I did add a slice of mozerella cheese in each calzone. Will definately make them again. Thanks for sharing this recipe

      These were so delicious! The dough turned out perfect! I'm rating it based on slightly different fillings as I think that really anything would taste good inside the calzones. I used 1 cup of mozerella instead of the 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. I still thought that it needed more cheese. I will add a lot more next time. I also used a tablespoon of Papa John's Pizza Sauce Papa John's Pizza Sauce inside when I put in the filling. I'm glad that I did. I felt that it needed the moisture. I used 1/2 lb of venison sausage (hunted by my husband) and the other 1/2 pound was pepperoni. Also, I brushed the tops with egg yolk to give it a nice glazed crust and cut a 1" slit in the top of each to allow steam to escape. My husband gave it 4 stars and said that it would be 5 stars if they had more cheese. He almost ate 2 of them... and they are big! Thanks so much for the recipe. They were delicious!
