Air-Fryer Calzones

You'll love these healthier stuffed pizzas using your air fryer. Make sure to not overfill them, so they'll stay sealed with all that cheesy goodness. Don't forget to flip them once while cooking so they'll get perfectly golden brown on both sides. Serve them up with a side of marinara sauce for dipping!

Hands On Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
27 mins


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion

  • 3 ounce baby spinach leaves (about 3 cups)

  • cup lower-sodium marinara sauce

  • 2 ounce shredded rotisserie chicken breast (about 1/3 cup)

  • 6 ounce fresh prepared whole-wheat pizza dough

  • 1 ½ ounce pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 6 Tbsp.)

  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2 minutes. Add spinach; cover and cook until wilted, 1 1/2 minutes. Remove pan from heat; stir in marinara sauce and chicken.

  2. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece on a lightly floured surface into a 6-inch circle. Place one-fourth of the spinach mixture over half of each dough circle. Top each with one-fourth of the cheese. Fold dough over filling to form half-moons, crimping edges to seal. Coat calzones well with cooking spray.

  3. Place calzones in air fryer basket, and cook at 325°F until dough is golden brown, 12 minutes, turning calzones over after 8 minutes.
