Spinach Artichoke Calzones
"Ah, spinach. That leafy green that gets so much attention as a nutritional powerhouse. It shows up in everything from salads to side dishes. And it also commonly gets pushed around the plate by kids everywhere. For some reason, spinach gets a bad rap. And that’s where spinach artichoke dip comes in! For these Spinach Artichoke Calzones, I took stuffed pizza dough with a generous scoop of spinach artichoke dip. The dough gets folded over and sealed together before heading off to the oven. Oh, before it gets baked, I brushed an herbed olive oil on top. We learned this trick years ago, and we’ve been brushing the crust of our pizzas with an olive oil + herb combination ever since. I swear sometimes the crust is my favorite part of homemade pizza now! That herbed olive oil that gets brushed on top of these calzones is one of the secret tricks that takes these calzones from good to great."
