How to Make It

Step 1

Place a rack on bottom shelf of oven; preheat to 450ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.

Step 2

Warm oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; sauté until softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper, if desired. Sauté for 30 seconds. Reduce heat to low. Add broccoli. Sauté for 2 minutes. Cover and cook until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in spinach.

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Stir in broccoli mixture. Working with 1 portion at a time, roll out dough on a lightly floured counter into 8-inch rounds. Divide filling among dough circles (about 3/4 cup each). Fold dough over to enclose filling; press to seal edges. Beginning in 1 corner, stretch sealed edge outward, pinching and rolling dough up and over to form a decorative edge.

Step 4

Transfer calzones to baking sheet. Whisk egg with 1 tsp. water. Brush top of each calzone with egg wash. Cut 3 small vents in each calzone. Bake until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Serve with tomato sauce if desired.

We loved this quick and delicious recipe. The filling is so good, loved the broccoli and spinach mixture. As always I have trouble with rolling out pizza dough but that does not ding this recipe at all!
