Turkey Meatball & Spinach Calzones

We love calzones but to find a really good one around here at a restaurant is a big challenge, not to mention the price! It's not as hard as you might think to make your own. I took a big short cut and used frozen bread dough. If you're more inclined to make your own dough, here's an easy bread machine dough recipe that's delicious.

Either way, just add your favorite pizza toppings and bake. It's that simple.

Tonight's calzones have turkey meatballs, spinach, mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce in them. MMM! The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it's so versatile. You can clean out the frig and stuff it into a calzone and your family will think that you are a 5-star chef! Get creative and get the kids into the kitchen. It will taste even better to them since they've helped to make it.

Turkey Meatball & Spinach Calzones

2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed according to package directions. Let rise according to package directions
1 bag frozen turkey meatballs, thawed
1/2 bag frozen spinach, thawed
shredded mozzarella cheese
pizza sauce

Sprinkle flour onto a large cutting board or onto the table. Divide each loaf of bread in half. Working with one piece of bread at a time, roll it out flat.

Cut the turkey meatballs in half. Lay 12- 14 pieces onto the bottom half of the dough. Spoon 2-3 tbsp. of pizza sauce over the meatballs.

Divide the spinach into 4 equal amounts. Sprinkle 1/4 of the spinach over the meatballs and sauce. Top with a generous sprinkling of cheese.

Fold the top half of the dough down over the filling. Wrap the dough into a rope form around the edges of the calzone, making sure the edges are sealed tightly. Refer to picture for help.

Lay the calzone on a baking sheet. Bake at 350* for 45-55 minutes, depending on the size and ingredients. Bake until the calzones are a deep golden brown. Serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping.
