SPINACH CALZONES

1 pkg (10-oz) frozen chopped spinach
1 pkg (3.5-oz) sliced pepperoni
2 slightly beaten eggs
1 cup pizza sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp dried basil, crushed
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 pkg (10-oz) refrigerated pizza dough
1 pkg (4-oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
cooking oil
1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain spinach, squeezing out the excess liquid. Chop pepperoni. Combine the spinach, pepperoni, eggs, 1/4 cup of the pizza sauce, the 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, basil, and garlic powder.

Unroll the refrigerator pizza dough. Press the dough into a 15x10-inch rectangle. Cut into quarters. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese onto half of each quarter. Spoon spinach mixture over the top of the mozzarella. Fold the dough over the filling mixture; seal the edges. Place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with oil and sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese. Cut small slits in top of each. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Heat and pass remaining pizza sauce to spoon over calzones, if desired.
