Recipe: Calzone

Thank you!
This delicious sandwich by Giada De Laurentiis is an ideal appetizer or lunch. 
Simply follow her recipe below and enjoy!  I did substitute pepperoni for the prosciutto and I rolled the dough into a rectangle rather than a circle. 
The pizza dough is often found in the deli or bakery department of most grocery stores.  You can now find gluten free pizza dough as well in some stores.

Flour for dusting
1 lb. purchased pizza dough
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
7 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
1 cup coarsely chopped baby spinach (about 1.5 ozs.)
1 tbsp. olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 425'F and position a rack in the lower 1/3 of the oven.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12 to 14" circle, about 1/4 inch thick.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella over the dough.  Arrange the prosciutto over the cheese in a single layer.  Sprinkle with the chopped spinach, then top with the remaining cheese.

Roll the dough into a thin cylinder, gently tucking in the ends.  Brush
the entire roll with the olive oil and season with the salt and pepper.
Place the dough, seam-side down, on the baking sheet and bake for 
25 mins. until the top is golden brown.  

Cool the roll for 3-4 mins. , then use a serrated knife to cut into slices.
