What You'll Need

  • 1 (13.8-ounce) package refrigerated pizza dough

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add spinach and garlic and sauté 3 to 5 minutes, or until garlic is golden. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, the oregano, and salt. Add spinach mixture and stir until well blended.
  4. Unroll pizza dough and with your fingertips or the heel of your hand, spread dough out to a 10- x 15-inch rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise to make two 5- x 15-inch rectangles. Spread half the spinach mixture onto each piece of dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Fold each piece of dough over and pinch the edges to seal securely. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

This is more of a calzone than a stromboli. A stromboli is rolled up, while a calzone is simply folded over, as shown in the video and the written instructions. They're still both delicious and I am a great fan of both. We have a local Italian restaurant that makes incredible calzones, so I have a high target to shoot for when I try to make it at home. I'd definitely include some sausage in the spinach and cheese mixture and, yes, a marinara sauce is almost a given when eating one of these.

has anyone tried with a white sauce?

In my house, we would have a red sauce to dunk the Stromboli in.

I made it and it definitely needs a pizza sauce to dunk it in.
