I used fresh spinach and drained my ricotta well over a bowl with cheesecloth. I quick chopped the spinach in the food processor and added 1c. shredded mozzarella to the filling and some sliced pepperoni. I also used Recipe #43740 for the dough. It's really easy and smelled just like an Italian restaurant while baking. We will be making this again. Thanks for sharing, this is a very versatile recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Position the oven rack in the lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough into a 10-inch circle. Cover and let rest while making the filling.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the spinach tomatoes, ricotta, scallions, basil, oregano, garlic, pepper, and salt.
  4. Spoon the mixture over half of the dough circle to within 1/2-inch of the edge.
  5. Fold the dough over the filling to close, crimping the edges to seal.
  6. With a large spatula, transfer the calzone to a baking sheet or to a baking stone in the oven.
  7. Sprinkle the top with the mozzarella.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the crust browns.
  9. Cut in half.
  10. Heat the tomato sauce and serve with the calzone.
