Give me Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza dough and I will figure out some way to use it with whatever I have in the fridge. Today it was a box of frozen spinach and some fat free ricotta, 2 things I try to keep on hand. Of course I used more spinach then cheese but it was still a tasty guilt free pizza like lunch while being super healthy! How can you beat that?
I’ve made something similar to this awhile back with fresh baby spinach, Spinach Ricotta Roll, but here’s what I did today. . .
- 1/2 Pound Pizza Dough (1/2 package of Trader Joes works great or you can make your own)
- 1 10 oz frozen pack of spinach defrosted
- 1/2 cup fat free Ricotta cheese (124 g)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/8 tsp kosher salt
- 2 oz mozzarella cheese
- Sauce for dipping – I used leftover homemade
Preheat oven to 425 Degrees
Separate the dough into 2 even 4 oz balls. Stretch and roll out the dough.
Drain any excess water from the spinach and mix it with Ricotta, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and mozzarella.
Half the spinach-cheese mixture on place each half on one side of rolled out dough. Fold over the dough, flatten a bit, seal the edges and pierce the top with a knife a few times.
Place calzones on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake on the middle rack for about 20 minutes until crust is firm to the touch and the spinach is warmed through.
Serve with dipping sauce and enjoy!
