Mixed Greens Calzones

Mixed Greens Calzones

Frozen pizza dough makes preparing these vegetarian sandwiches a breeze.


Serves 6

  • 2 1/2 cups Pictsweet frozen Mixed Greens
  • 1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 1 cup Pictsweet frozen Seasoning Blend
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole-grain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


Place frozen greens in saucepan and cover with water. Place on stove top and bring to a boil. Boil 3 minutes. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain well, pressing out as much liquid as possible (should have about 1 cup). Divide dough into 6 equal pieces; with a rolling pin, roll out each to a 7" round. Set aside on wax paper. Preheat oven to 400 degrees; lightly oil a baking sheet. Sauté seasoning blend in oil until liquid evaporates. Remove from heat and stir in drained greens, ricotta, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, basil, salt and pepper. If necessary, reroll dough rounds to 7". Divide greens filling onto one side of each round (about 1/3 cup each). Brush the outer 1/2" of dough round with water. Fold uncovered sides of dough rounds over filling and pinch the edge together. Place on baking sheet; brush tops with water and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake in the upper third of oven until browned, about 20 minutes and serve.
