  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¼ cup chopped shallot
  • 1 (11 ounce) package baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 1 minute. Add spinach in batches and cook, stirring, until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in dill, parsley, garlic and pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Transfer the spinach mixture to a large mixing bowl. Stir in ricotta and feta.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, cut dough into 4 equal pieces. Pat and roll each piece into a 7-inch circle. Place ½ cup filling on one half of each circle, leaving a ½-inch border. Top with 2 tablespoons mozzarella. Fold the dough over the filling and crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Cut 3 small slits in the top to vent steam; brush the calzones with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Transfer the calzones to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake the calzones until browned on top, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
