Cheesy Spinach Calzones

Cheesy Spinach Calzones
My modifications below recipe

1 package (10-ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 8-ounce package cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese
4 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 chopped green onion
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 13.8-ounce package refrigerated pizza dough
1 egg white
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Method: Grease a large cookie sheet and set aside. For filling, combine spinach, cream cheese, 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese, green onion and pepper. Set aside.

Unroll pizza dough on lightly floured surface. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knive, cut into four even pieces. Spoon filling (divided evenly) onto one side of each piece of dough and fold over, carefully pinching the edges. (You can use a fork and a Tablespoon of water to seal the edges if needed.) Brush tops with egg white and remaining Parmesan cheese.

Place on cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until nice and golden brown.

You can also divide the dough into 25 three-inch squares for appetizers, fill and bake.

My modifications: I use Wildtree's Quick and Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Crust Mix and add 1/4 cup of Wildtree's Alfredo Mix to the filling. It makes it extra cheesy and gives it gourmet flare. Instead of brushing the tops with egg white, I use Wildtree's Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil.
