Family Recipe Review

As promised, I did a review of this calzone recipe.

As suggested by the reviewers I decided to use the Philsbury Pizza Crust instead of the homemade bread. We also used pizza toppings instead of spinach.

PREP TIME 1 Hr (if made by recipe directions)
READY IN 1 Hr 30 Min


1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
2 eggs
2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
salt and pepper to taste
1 (32 ounce) package frozen white bread dough, thawed

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, eggs, Italian seasoning, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and spinach. Set aside.
Divide the bread dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece out to about an 8 inch circle. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the ricotta filling onto each circle, fold over and seal the edges. Place onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until nicely browned on the tops and bottoms.

My Review

I think that if I used some other kind of crust, this would have been better. It really reminded me of a biscut. And maybe more regular cheese and not as much ricotta. I will be trying a different calzone recipe next time! We all ate it, it just wasn't the best.
