Three Cheese Veggie and Beef Calzone
Yield: 6 servings
1 teaspoon olive or vegetable oil
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 cup sliced button mushrooms
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained
6 slices (6 ounces) deli roast beef
3 slices provolone cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (4-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained
4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the onions and mushrooms; cook 5 minutes or until softened and lightly browned at edges. Stir in the spinach and red pepper flakes. Remove skillet from heat and set aside.
2. In a blender, add the 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes and puree until smooth; set aside.
3. Preheat oven to 350F.
4. On a lightly floured work surface, cut dough into 6 equal pieces. With a rolling pin, roll each piece into a 6-inch diameter. Spread 1 teaspoon of the sun-dried tomato paste over 1 dough circle. Place 1 slice of beef in center. Top with half of a provolone slice, some of the mozzarella, some of the vegetable mixture, a piece of the roasted red pepper and Parmesan cheese. Fold circle of dough in half and press with fork to seal edges.
5. Place calzones on a large foil-lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining dough and ingredients. Bake about 30 minutes or until evenly browned and heated through. Serve hot or warm.
