Calzones nice change from pizza

By Nancy Morgan

Using store bought pizza dough, change up pizza night.

SPINACH-CHEESE

CALZONE

• 15 oz container ricotta cheese

• 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

• 1-10 oz pkg frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

• Salt and pepper to taste

• Pinch of nutmeg

• 3 tbsp Parmesan cheese

• 1 tsp dried basil, crushed

• 1 pkg fresh or frozen pizza dough, thawed if frozen

• 1 jar prepared marinara

Preheat oven to 400. Combine ricotta, mozzarella, spinach, & spices. Mix well. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough out into a 15 inch circle. Spread cheese mixture over one half of the circle. Fold dough over, forming a half moon. Pinch the edges together to seal. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with parmesan. Bake until puffed up and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with warm marinara.
