This recipe I clipped from the April 20, 2004 edition of Family Circle. I remember when Calzones became popular here in America. I believe it was in one of the Seinfeld comedy shows when the world over was making Calzones. LOL. I had heard of them before that, but never had made one. This recipe is an easy one to make, and I love spinach and hope you all do to. I think the spinach is safe to eat now, isn't it?? In this recipe, I substituted turkey for the ham as we do not eat pork.
1 package (12 ounces) frozen spinach souffle, thawed in refrigerator overnight
1/4 pound sliced cooked ham, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese (2 ozs)
1 tube (10 ozs) refrigerated pizza crust
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Coat baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In large bowl, combine thawed spinach souffle, ham and cheese
Unroll tube of refrigerated pizza crust into 10-inch square; if necessary roll out with rolling pin. Cut into four 4-inch squares. Spoon 1/2 cup spinach mixture onto each square; spread into a triangle to cover half. Fold dough over filling to form triangle. Roll edge over once to seal. Invert onto prepared baking sheet. with fork, press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and dough.
Bake in 400 degree oven until calzones are browned and filling is hot, about 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
