Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 calzone)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Unroll dough onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; cut into 4 quarters. Pat each quarter into a 6 x 5-inch rectangle. Sprinkle garlic evenly over rectangles. Top each rectangle with 1 cup spinach, 2 onion slices, 1/3 cup mushrooms, and 3 tablespoons cheese. Bring 2 opposite corners to center, pinching points to seal. Bring remaining 2 corners to center, pinching all points together to seal. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until golden.

Delicious. I did a quick saute of the onions, garlic and mushrooms then wilted in the spinach. Put a thin layer of tomato sauce on each calzone then filled them. I subbed in goat cheese for the blue cheese. These were a definitely hit. I was going for a vegetarian meal so I served stuffed mushrooms and salad.

Love all the ingredients, but was not happy with the taste or texture of them together. Surprised not only did I not love it, but couldn't even eat it.

These are delicious...great combination of flavors and easy to make. I used a buttermilk blue which worked well with the mushrooms. My husband suggested adding a bit of leftover steak. I might try that next time.

I combined this recipe and one for a roasted onion tart from cooking light. Basically I just tossed the sliced onion and halved garlic cloves with balsamic vinegar and some salt and pepper then roasted them for 25 min or so. Then I put a handful of spinach on each dough piece and a fourth of the onions and garlic, sprinkled the cheese on top (sometimes I use feta instead of blue) then folded the dough. They didn't take quite as long to bake in my oven. They were a huge hit, tons of flavor. Plus they were much easier to make then I expected.

These were amazing! This recipe was easy to make and didn't take a lot of time. I bought the pizza dough from the grocery store. I don't like blue cheese so I used mozzarella. I would suggest adding more spinach to each calzone then they say because it shrinks when cooked.

These were AWESOME! I disagree with all the reviewers that added sauce or sauteed the veggies. It's not needed and will only drown these wonderful flavors! I was skeptical at first too with all that onion and raw spinach, but make the recipe as is and you will be pleasantly surprised!

Very simple and easy recipe. The calzones came out good but I don't think the recipe is anything too special. I won't make this exact recipe again but it is a good base to use for other ideas.

Super-easy. Made to directions except added 1/4 of a pre-cooked hot italian turkey sausage link, diced, to each calzone. Baked on pizza stone 14min. Served with green salad. Good, quick dinner, no need to pre-cook any of the vegs.
