“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.”

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.
