Lentil and Spinach Calzone



  • 1 quantity of pizza dough made as in here

  • 200g green lentils

  • 100g spinach, washed

  • 400ml water

  • 200g block of mozzarella cheese, divided into quarters and sliced



  1. Make the pizza dough as in the other recipe.

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees.

  3. Place the lentils and water in a pan and bring to the boil.

  4. Simmer for 20 minutes and then add the spinach.

  5. Simmer for 5 more minutes until the spinach has cooked down nicely.

  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Divide the dough into four and roll out one of the quarters.

  8. Place a quarter of the lentil and spinach mix in the center of the rolled out dough.

  9. Place a quarter of the cheese on top of the lentil mix.

  10. Carefully use a finger dipped into a cup of water to make the edge of the dough wet. Then fold the dough over so the damp edges touch and press firmly to stick them together.

  11. Place the calzone on an oven tray and repeat for the remaining three.

  12. Bake for 20 minutes.

  13. Serve with some tomato salsa on the side.

Serves 4.
