Spinach Calzone

"This is delicious even if you don't particularly like spinach. The recipe originally called for 10 oz of spinach, but since I don't care for it, I cut it way down. Still gives a little taste without being overpowering."

    Well, I didn't eat this, but my husband said "5 stars". I added 1/2 tsp of jarred mixed garlic to the filling. I also added more mozzarella to the top of the filling before I folded it over. I also used olive oil and parm cheese for the top because we were out of eggs.

    I added shrimp and mushrooms to the recipe and sauteed them in garlic which proved to be a bit ;much after I seasoned the spinach. Next time I will just sautee and not season the spinach, but it was still delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

    MMmmm, delicious! I always make a few changes, no matter the recipe, so here goes....instead of using bread dough, I used the Herb and Parmesan Pizza Dough (found on this site) from my breadmaker, I added sauteed chicken for my meat-eating hubby, a teaspoon of red pepper flakes (because we like it spicy!), substituted low-fat cottege cheese (I like it in lasgna better, so I thought I'd try it here rather than buying ricotta cheese just for this) and spread sundried tomato pesto as a base before filling. It turned out DELICIOUS!! I love this recipe, and it gives plenty of room for imagination.

    Great recipe wih great flavor. I used refrigerated pizza dough instead of bread dough because that's what I had on hand. My daughter and I had a great time preparing this together. Thanks for posting!

    The filling was quite bland so I added fresh lemon, garlic, caramelized onions, and a lot of salt. I won’t be making calzones again. Even after stretching the dough thin and overstuffing each one they turned out thin and bland.
