DIRECTIONS

  • Heat thawed spinach in a skillet on medium heat. Add garlic, salt, and pepper-stir together. Add cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese and stir until melted. Add sliced mushrooms and cook 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and let stand.
  • Grease a pizza/cookie sheet. Roll out the pizza dough from the pkg. Stretch the dough to just fit the cooking sheet. Cut the dough into 4 rectangles.
  • Divide Spinach mixture into 4 portions. Drop one portion onto each pizza dough rectangle. Take one corner of the dough and pull it to the opposite corner to enclose the spinach mixture. Pinch close to form a triangle. Brush tops with either melted butter or egg white. Sprinkle tops with remaining parmesan cheese.
  • Bake calazones for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Use marinara sauce as a side to dip your calazone in!
