Ingredients

1
pound
refrigerated pizza dough
1
cup
fresh ricotta
1
cup
grated mozzarella (4 ounces)
1/4
cup
grated Parmesan (1 ounce)
1
bunch
spinach, thick stems removed and roughly chopped (5 cups)
black pepper
1/4
pound
thinly sliced salami
2
tablespoons
olive oil
1
cup
jarred marinara sauce, warmed

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. On a lightly floured surface, divide the dough into 4 equal portions and roll and stretch them into 8-inch rounds.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, spinach, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  3. Layer the salami on one side of each round of dough and top with the cheese mixture. Fold the dough over the filling and pinch the edges to seal.
  4. Brush the tops of the calzones with the oil. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with the sauce.
