This calzone-like roll mixes fresh spinach with cheese, raisins, and pine nuts—a flavor combination reminiscent of the Mediterranean.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 (6-ounce) packages baby spinach
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
2/3 cup golden raisins
3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
1 tablespoon 2% reduced-fat milk
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add half of spinach; cook 1 minute or until spinach wilts. Add remaining spinach; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until spinach wilts. Remove from heat; stir in feta and next 6 ingredients (through pepper).
Place dough on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; pat dough into a 15 x 12-inch rectangle. Spread spinach mixture lengthwise over half of dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold other half of dough over filling; press edges together with a fork. Cut 5 (1-inch) diagonal slits in top of dough.
Combine milk and water; brush evenly over dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until golden.
Made exactly as the recipe called for. Husband felt the raisins were a little overpowering, and suggested leaving them out next time and using mushrooms instead. He still loved it and the raisins certainly didn't keep him from eating 2 pieces.
I substitueted orange cherry tomatoes for the raisins. I also used half kale and half spinach. I also rolled whole wheat dough with cornmeal (very farmhouse feel). My famiily asked for more and we ate it all! There was none left. I will definitely make it again. I might add artichokes. :)
This was delicious and very easy to put together. Love the combination of pine nuts and golden raisins. Thought two bags of spnach would be too much but it wasn't. Didn't change anything in the recipe. A definite repeat.
WOW, this was unbelievably GOOD!! We ended up doubling the recipe for our family of 5 and doubling the fetta cheese as we didn't want the fetta to go to waste ;) It was just perfect combination of flavors, a bit sweet but WONDERFUL! Never have I thought spinach would taste so good!!
