“Originally from All You Magazine, but I tweaked it a little for my family. For the dough, I used Pizza Dough and Sauce with part whole wheat flour. Or use any recipe that makes 2 16-inch pizzas. (Prep time will be longer if you are making your dough from scratch.) The calzones are excellent the next day as well, warm or cold.”
8 calzones

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat to 450ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; sauté until softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper, if desired. Sauté for 30 seconds. Reduce heat to low. Add broccoli. Sauté for 2 minutes. Cover and cook until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in spinach.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Stir in broccoli mixture.
  4. Divide the dough into eight portions. Working with 1 portion at a time, roll out dough on a lightly floured counter into 8-inch rounds. Divide filling among dough circles (about 3/4 cup each). Fold dough over to enclose filling; press to seal edges. Beginning in 1 corner, stretch sealed edge outward, pinching and rolling dough up and over to form a decorative edge.
  5. Transfer calzones to baking sheet. Whisk egg with 1 teaspoons water. Brush top of each calzone with egg wash. Cut 3 small vents in each calzone. Bake until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Serve with marinara or Italian dressing if desired.
