Spinach Calzones

Time: 1 hrs 45 mins


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 1/2-3 cups flour


  • 1 Filling:.
  • 2 If using fresh spinach, wash, stem and finely chop, steam it quickly on medium high heat, adding no additional water. When wilted and deep green, remove to a bowl with a slotted spoon. (if using frozen - thaw and squeeze out as much moisture as you can).
  • 3 Saute onion and garlic in butter till translucent and soft.
  • 4 Combine all ingredients, mix well, salt and pepper to taste.
  • 5 Dough:.
  • 6 Soften together yeast, water and honey.
  • 7 Add salt and flour to make a soft dough. Knead 10 minutes, or till smooth and elastic, adding flour if necessary to keep from being sticky.
  • 8 Cover and let rise till doubled (about 1 hour - less if using rapid rise yeast).
  • 9 Punch down. Divide into six sections and roll out in rounds 1/4 inch thick.
  • 10 Fill with 1/2-3/4 cup filling, placing filling on one half of the circle, leaving a 1/2 inch rim.
  • 11 Moisten the rim with a little water, fold the empty side over, and crimp the edges.
  • 12 Prick here and there with a fork to allow steam to escape.
  • 13 Bake on an oiled tray (I use a baking stone) in a preheated 450 oven for 15-20 minutes or till crisp and lightly browned.
  • 14 Brush each pastry with a little butter as it comes from the oven.
