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.

This is a good solid weeknight meal.  I added extra blue cheese and served it with a green salad.  I agree that you can switch this recipe up with different cheeses and serving it with a tomato sauce.

Quick and easy! Very good - a favorite so far on my culinary exploration. I'm a vegetarian so am always looking for new recipes. Only changes were I used a feta with tomatoes and olive blend vice the blue cheese - calzone and blue cheese just didn't sound appealing. Added some marina. This recipe has limitless possibilities when it comes to ingredients so plan on experimenting in the future.

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.

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!

These were pretty good. I used shredded cheddar for my daughter's because she doesn't like blue cheese. I also took the extra step of carmelizing the onion. Served with Waldorf Coleslaw (also Cooking Light) for a quick work night dinner.

These were sooo good. I used pizza dough from the grocery store and rolled it out into squares myself. I lightly caramelized 1 onion before I put it in the calzone and I HIGHLY recommend this! I also used feta cheese instead. Absolutely delicious!

I cut my dough in 1/8's instead of 1/4's and served as an appetizer. Worked great. May try to make them even smaller next time.
