Calzone Supreme

Calzone Supreme

Inspired by For the Love of Cooking
Makes 1 Calzone (double, triple, etc. for more)

4 oz. Trader Joe’s Pizza Dough
6 tbsp Naturally Preferred Mushroom Pasta sauce, divided
25 g Fat-Free Mozzarella cheese, shredded
15 g Fat-Free Feta cheese
½ cup mushrooms, diced
1 Fresh basil leaf, chopped
10 baby spinach leaves, chopped
12 Hormel Turkey pepperonis, chopped
1 tsp olive oil
Olive oil flavored cooking spray
Red pepper flakes to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray pizza tray with olive oil. Roll dough out to form a 8” pizza and place on pizza tray. Spread 2 tbsp sauce over half the dough. Add 1 tsp olive oil and toppings (cheeses, mushrooms, pepperonis, spinach, basil, flakesl). Fold the other half of the dough over the toppings and carefully fold and crimp the ends of the dough so it's sealed. Use a knife to make a few slits on the top and spray with cooking spray. Place in the oven and cook for 20-22 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Remove from oven and let rest for 2-3 minutes before slicing into wedges. Serve with 4 tbsp sauce for dipping.

Review: I thought the TJ’s dough was GREAT! Next time I’ll rub the olive oil on top instead of having it inside, I’ll use more red pepper and I may even sprinkle some garlic salt on top! Also - the guy at TJ's strongly encouraged you to let it sit out for 30 minutes before starting (less sticky; easier to work with). We loved them though! I think I’ll definitely keep the dough in the house and will be making pizzas and calzones a lot! My next one will definitely be veggie with lots of tomatoes and basil – woo!
