- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1/2 of a 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
- 1/2 of an 8-ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), softened
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 13.8-ounce package refrigerated pizza dough
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
- Aluminum foil
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil; lightly coat the foil with cooking spray. Set baking sheets aside. For filling, in a medium bowl, stir together spinach, cream cheese, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, green onion, and pepper. Set aside.
Unroll pizza dough on a lightly floured surface; roll dough into a 15-inch square. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into twenty five 3-inch squares. Spoon a slightly rounded teaspoon of filling onto the center of each square. In a small mixing bowl use a fork to combine egg white and water. Brush edges of dough squares with egg white mixture. Lift a corner of each square and stretch dough over filling to opposite corner, making a triangle. Press edges with the tines of a fork to seal.
Arrange the calzones on aluminum foil-lined baking sheets. Prick tops of calzones with fork. Brush tops of calzones with egg white mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Bake one sheet at a time for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly on baking sheets. Serve warm.
