Spinach, Onion and Three Cheese Calzone

Warm, crispy calzone filled with onions and Parmigiano-Reggiano, Mozzarella and Ricotta cheese. Able to be made in two different sizes with our handy calzone press.


  • 1¼ lb dough (60 kg) pizza dough
  • 10 oz (285 g) baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 sweet onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup (45 g) freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 4 oz (120 g) fresh mozzarella cheese, finely diced
  • 1 cup (225 g) ricotta cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • All-purpose flour for dusting


Let the dough sit at room temperature 1 to 2 hours before building the calzone.

Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 400°F/204°C.

Rinse the spinach and let drain. In a pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the sweet onion and cook until translucent, then add the garlic and cook about 1 minute. Add the spinach, cover and cook until tender. Drain the spinach mixture in a colander, pressing gently to remove excess liquid; transfer to a bowl, add the cheeses and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

Roll out the dough on a Dough Rolling Mat and use the Calzone Press to cut out the dough circles and form calzones. Place the calzones on a preheated Pizza/Baking Stone and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
