      Ingredients:

      • 1 diced onion
      • 1 clove garlic, minced
      • 3 cups roughly chopped fresh spinach
      • 1 cup ricotta cheese
      • 2 oz feta cheese
      • 1/2 tsp each nutmeg and salt
      • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
      • 1 egg yolk
      • 1 recipe pizza dough (although I used Pillsbury)
      • 1 tbsp yellow corn meal

      Directions:

      1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
      2. Heat some oil in a frying pan. Saute onion for 5 minutes till soft. Add garlic and saute another minute. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about two minutes.
      3. Combine in a mixing bowl: feta, ricotta, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and egg yolk. Add spinach mixture. Stir to combine.
      4. Roll out pizza dough into a 12″ square. Divide into 4 equal pieces. Mound the filling equally on the squares, leaving 1/2 of the diagonal empty and also leaving a 1/2″ border. Fold over the dough, using a fork to pinch the edges shut.Use a knife to vent the tops.
      5. Sprinkle the corn meal on a large baking sheet. Place the prepared calzones on the sheet.
      6. Bake at 375 for 25 – 30 minutes, or till golden brown.
