Spinach and Feta-Stuffed Focaccia

This calzone-like roll is filled with the flavors of the Mediterranean:  feta, raisin and pine nuts.  This recipe makes 6 servings.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 (6-ounce) packages baby spinach
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2/3 cup golden raisins
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 can refrigerated pizza crust dough
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onion and garlic and saute 1 minute.
  • Add half of the spinach and cook until wilted, about 1 minute.  Add the remaining spinach and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add in the feta, raisins, pine nuts, lemon juice, oregano, salt and ground red pepper.
  • Place the dough on a baking sheet covered with cooking spray.  Pat the dough out into a 15 x 12 rectangle.
  • Spread the spinach mixture lengthwise over half of the dough – leaving a 1-inch border.
  • Fold the other half of the dough over the filling, pressing the edges together with a fork.
  • Cut 5 1-inch diagonal slits on top.
  • Combine the milk and water; brush evenly over the dough.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake until golden, about 15 minutes.
