We ate this as a side dish - I used Trader Joe's garlic and herb fresh pizza dough and rolled it out fairly thin. I also cooked sliced leeks and mushrooms before preparing the calzone. Lastly, because I don't care for blue cheese - I used a little bit of ricotta (I had it in the house) and shaved parmesan. It was very delicious! I packed in the fresh spinach - so I felt it was a good veggie side dish with chicken breasts. Very delicious!
Spinach Calzones with Blue Cheese
The combination of onions, mushrooms, and fresh spinach packs a serving of veggies into each of these easy, impressive calzones. We found that a pizza cutter works well for dividing the refrigerated dough into 4 equal portions.
