When we came across this calzone recipe on Squidoo (via Pinterest), we couldn't help but think how much it looked like a Danish. And that we should remake it. And then eat it. (And so we did.)

3 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup chopped red onion
1 tsp. chopped garlic
4 cups chopped spinach leaves
1 package refrigerated Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet, or HG Alternative
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup sliced black olives

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic. Cook and stir until softened, 6 - 8 minutes.

Add spinach and cook until wilted, 1 - 2 minutes. Transfer veggies to a large bowl and blot away excess moisture.

On the baking sheet, roll or stretch out dough into a large rectangle of even thickness. Arrange sheet with the short sides on the left and right.

Spread pizza sauce horizontally across the middle third of the dough, leaving 1/2-inch borders on the sides. Top sauce with cooked veggies and sprinkle with cheese.

Make vertical cuts about 1 inch apart along the top section of the dough, stopping about 1/2 inch above the filling, to create 1-inch-wide strips of dough. Repeat with the bottom section of the dough. Alternate folding the top and bottom strips over the filling, covering it completely and creating a "braided" criss-cross. Cross the last few strips toward the middle of the calzone. Fold the sides of the dough in and firmly pat to seal.

Evenly press olive slices into the dough strips on top. Bake until crispy and golden brown, 15 - 20 minutes. Slice and chew!


HG Alternative: If you can't find the Recipe Creations dough, go for Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent roll dough. (The products are nearly identical.) Then just pinch/seal up the perforations for a seamless sheet.
