Spinach and mushroom calzone

This was a quick vegetarian alternative to my favorite BBQ chicken calzone. It apparently turned out well.

5 oz frozen spinach leaves
4 oz mushrooms
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp minced onion
0.5 tsp pepper flakes
0.25 cup ricotta
1 tbsp hot sauce
0.5 portion pizza dough
2 oz mozzarella
olive oil
garlic powder
oregano salt

IngredientsSaute the minced onion in oil until translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft and slightly browned. Add the thawed, chopped spinach and heat through.

Salt to taste and mix in one grated garlic clove and some pepper flakes. Mix the ricotta with the other grated garlic clove and the spicy sauce. Salt lightly.

Roll out the dough. Brush with olive oil, but not all the way to the edge. Add in the veggies and the ricotta. Sprinkle small mozzarella cubes on top. Fold the top of the dough over. Pierce with a fork and brush with olive oil. Bake in a preheated 425F oven until golden brown.

Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano and a little bit of garlic powder. Serve.
