Position rack in lowest position; preheat oven to 450 °F. Sprinkle a baking sheet generously with cornmeal.
Prepare Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough, if using.
Divide the dough into 4 pieces on a lightly floured surface,. Roll each piece into an 8-inch circle. Spread 2 tablespoons sauce on the lower half of each circle, leaving a 1-inch border. Season spinach with salt and pepper and distribute it over the sauce. Top with roasted red peppers and cheese.
Brush the border with cold water and fold the top half of each circle over the filling. Fold the edges over and crimp with a fork to seal. Transfer the calzones to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the calzones for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Let cool slightly before serving.
Ingredient Note: Ricotta salata is ricotta cheese that has been aged with salt. Look for it in a specialty cheese shop or gourmet food store.
Tastes good. Looks bad.
As someone else said, way too many wet ingredients in this. It happen to taste great, but I'm not surprised that no one had a good picture to post of it.
Pros: Tasted really good.
Cons: Always ends up looking sloppy due to the shape and it being wet

Ingredients too wet.
First of all the amounts specified for the ingredients are way to much. Our calzones unwrapped like a badly-stuffed kebab. The marinara and spinach was too wet and juices ran all over the place. I am usually so happy with Eatingwell recipes but this one's a dud.
Pros: Tastes nice.
Cons: Awkward to make

I amazed myself and my dinner companions with this wonderful recipe. It was the first time I had made pizza dough from scratch. They weren't kidding - only 5 minutes of prep if you use the food processor. I sauteed leeks and fresh rainbow chard instead of frozen spinach and put a bowl of extra homemade tomato sauce on the table. Delicious.

Well, I used roasted sliced pimentos, but nevertheless delicious! I'm always a fan if feta is involved :) It's also super easy to make
