Mini Spinach Calzones
I was surprised at how good this recipe was. This makes a great snack or appetizer.
5 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
4 ounces reduced fat cream cheese
2 tbs green onion, finely chopped
1 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
10 ounce package pizza dough
1 tbs milk
pepper, to taste
Prep time: 30 mins :: Baking time: 8 mins :: Standing Time: 5 mins
To make filling:
In a medium mixing bowl stir together the spinach, cream cheese, green onion, Parmesan cheese and pepper. Set aside.
Unroll pizza dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15-inch square. Using a knife, cut into 25 three inch squares.
Spoon 1 rounded tsp of filling onto each dough square. Brush edges of each square with water. Lift a corner of each square and stretch over the filling to the opposite corner, making a triangle. Press edges of dough well with a fork to seal.
Line a baking sheet with foil; lightly grease the foil. Arrange the calzones on the baking sheet. Prick tops of calzones with a fork. Brush milk over the calzones.
Bake at 425 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes or until golden. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with marinara sauce. Makes 25 mini-calzones.
