  • air fryer


  • 6 ounces fresh prepared whole-wheat pizza dough
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion (from 1 small onion)
  • 3 ounces baby spinach leaves (about 3 cups)
  • 1/3 cup lower-sodium marinara sauce
  • 2 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken breast (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 1/2 ounces pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 6 Tbsp.)
  • Cooking spray


  • Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2 minutes. Add spinach; cover and cook until wilted, 1 1/2 minutes. Remove pan from heat; stir in marinara sauce and chicken. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece on a lightly floured surface into a 6-inch circle. Place one-fourth of the spinach mixture over half of each dough circle. Top each with one-fourth of the cheese. Fold dough over filling to form half-moons, crimping edges to seal. Coat calzones well with cooking spray.

    Spray the basket with cooking spray. Place calzones in air fryer basket, and cook at 325°F or 162°C for 12 minutes or until dough is golden brown.
