The filling has flavor, but is dry. Needs more cheese and some kind of white sauce. The canned pizza crust is bland and messes up the flavors.

This is delicious! It had some prep time for cutting up the spinach and artichokes, and shredding the chicken after cooking it. Not a quick recipe, but delicious nonetheless!

So I had to change a few things, just because of the past reviews on here. I also added chicken sausage in addition to one chicken breast, also I used a multi-grain pizza dough (available at Publix) to add some extra nutritional value (or so I think extra..). Anyways, the whole thing came together great, was very flavorful and filling with a small side salad in addition. A definite MUST TRY recipe!

Not my favorite, but not terrible. A bit bland and boring. Check out my full review at http://alittlenosh.blogspot.com/2010/07/roasted-chicken-artichoke-calzones.html

I really enjoyed this recipe. I made some slight adjustments after reading the other reviews. .. I used a rotisserie chicken , doubled the garlic, and instead of provolone I used an Italian cheese blend (provolone, mozzarella, romano, asiago and parmesan) . We had a great pasta dipping sauce. I will definitely make this again.

My family loves these. I now almost always make a double batch to make sure we have leftovers. Using a rotisserie chicken definitely speeds up the process. I've also just used leftover baked or sauteed chicken (just so it doesn't have too much conflicting flavors) I don't often make the marinara sauce - I just use whatever sauce we have on hand. My picky eaters don't seem to even notice the spinach and artichokes :)

A tiny bit of tweaking makes this a great recipe - like a previous reviewer, I also use rotisserie chicken and also a reduced-fat Italian cheese blend, which is much more flavorful than provolone and eliminates a bit of fat. I make six at a time and wrap the leftover ones individually in foil - when we need a quick meal, I just open up the foil and put in the oven at 350 degrees for about fifteen minutes, flipping them half way through so both sides get a little crispy. Throw together a salad and dinner is done. Delicious!
