Keto Calzone With Spinach & Cheese
Yields1 Serving
Prep Time30 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time1 hr
For the filling
 1 egg
 ½ cup shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
 ½ cup whole milk ricotta cheese
 ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled
 ¼ tsp nutmeg
 ¼ tsp ground black pepper
 ½ tsp kosher salt
 ½ tsp onion powder
 3 cups (packed) baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped
 1 clove garlic, minced
 2 tbsp butter
For the dough
 2 cups shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
 3 ounces cream cheese
 1 ½ cups superfine blanched almond flour
 1 egg
 1 tsp psyllium husk powder
Creating the filling
1

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.

2

When the garlic is aromatic, add it and simmer for one minute.

3

When the spinach is brilliant green and wilted, add it along with the onion powder, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring regularly. Get rid of the heat.

4

Then, thoroughly toss in the feta, ricotta, and mozzarella cheeses.

5

Stir in the egg thoroughly after adding it. Place aside.

Making The Dough
6

Put the cream cheese and mozzarella cheese in a bowl that can withstand microwaves.

7

For 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted, microwave the food, uncovered, on high.

8

Remove from the microwave and mix the cheeses using a spatula.

9

To the cheese mixture, incorporate the egg, psyllium husk powder, and almond flour.

10

A stiff dough will develop after vigorous stirring with a spatula or fork.

11

To make sure all the ingredients are well combined and the dough has a smooth texture, knead it by hand for 2 to 3 minutes.

To Put Together The Calzone:
12

Set the oven's temperature to 400.

13

Dough is divided in half. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, press one half into a 12 x 8 rectangle that is approximately 1/4 inch thick.

14

Leave a one-inch border all the way around after spooning the filling onto the centre and spreading it out.

15

To keep the filling in place, turn up the edges and pinch the corners.

16

Outline a 13 x 6 rectangle on a different piece of parchment, making it about 1/4 inch thick.

17

Cut the long strips into three braidable lengths or into six shorter lengths to lay across.

18

As desired, braid the strips or arrange them across and diagonally in a crisscross design.

19

To firmly affix the strips to the calzone's edges, press them into the dough.

20

If desired, top the calzone with beaten egg yolk and garnish with coarse salt, poppy seeds, or sesame seeds.

21

Bake for 35 minutes, or until lightly puffed and golden brown.

22

Before slicing, remove from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes.
