Recipe Ingredients for Spinach Calzone

3/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 cup cream cheese
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
16 oz. frozen chopped spinach
7 oz. roasted red peppers
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
10 oz. pizza crust
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups pasta sauce

Recipe Directions for Spinach Calzone

  1. Preheat oven to 425.

  2. Combine first 4 ingredients; beat with a mixer at medium speed 2 minutes or until well-blended. Stir in spinach, bell peppers, garlic powder, and black pepper.

  3. Unroll pizza crust onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; pat into a 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread spinach mixture over half of the crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Sprinkle mozzarella and cheddar over spinach mixture. Fold dough over filling; press edges together to seal.
