Italian Sausage–Spinach Calzones

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb. Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (15-oz.) container part-skim ricotta
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend (4 oz.)
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 (10-oz.) pkg. frozen spinach, thawed, drained well
  • 1 (16-oz.) pkg. fresh pizza dough
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • Additional marinara sauce (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat 2 large nonstick baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage; cook 6 minutes or until no longer pink, stirring to break up sausage. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain; let cool completely.
  2. In a medium bowl combine ricotta, Italian cheese blend, egg yolk, spinach, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Cut dough into 4 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into an 8-inch round. Place rounds on baking sheets. Evenly spoon cheese mixture on half of each round, leaving a 1-inch border. Top evenly with sausage. Top each with 1/4 cup marinara.
  4. Fold dough over filling until edges almost meet. Bring bottom edge over top edge, and crimp edges to seal. Prick the tops with a fork to vent steam.
  5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with additional marinara, if desired. Serve warm.
