Mini Spinach Calzones

Makes: 25 servings
Prep 30 mins Cool 15 mins Bake 400°F 8 mins to 10 mins
Mini Spinach Calzones
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 10  ounce package  frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
  • 1/2 8  ounce package  reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • 2  tablespoons  grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped green onion
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1 13.8 ounce package  refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1  egg white
  • 1  tablespoon  water
  • 1  tablespoon  grated Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with foil; lightly coat the foil with cooking spray. Set baking sheets aside. For filling, in a medium bowl, stir together spinach, cream cheese, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, green onion, and pepper. Set aside.

2. Unroll pizza dough on a lightly floured surface; roll dough into a 15-inch square. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into twenty five 3-inch squares. Spoon a slightly rounded teaspoon of filling onto the center of each square. In a small mixing bowl use a fork to combine egg white and water. Brush edges of dough squares with egg white mixture. Lift a corner of each square and stretch dough over filling to opposite corner, making a triangle. Press edges with the tines of a fork to seal.

3. Arrange the calzones on prepared baking sheets. Prick tops of calzones with fork. Brush tops of calzones with egg white mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Bake one sheet at a time for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly on baking sheets. Serve warm.
