Ingredients
  

Crust:

  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 5 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • tsp xantham gum
  • salt to taste

Filling:

  • 2 cups fresh spinach chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

Filling:

  • Place a skillet over medium heat and pour in the olive oil. Add the chopped spinach and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the spinach turns bright green and the excess moisture evaporates, remove it from the skillet.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cooked spinach, cream cheese, minced garlic, egg, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Dough:

  • Put the shredded mozzarella cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave it on high for 30 seconds. Then remove the bowl, stir the mozzarella, and send it back into the microwave for 30 more seconds.
  • Add the egg, almond flour, baking powder, xantham gum, and some salt into the bowl with melted cheese. Then, use a spatula to mix everything together. If the dough isn’t of smooth consistency, knead it by hand for a few minutes.

Baking:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking tray with a piece of parchment paper. Spray it with some cooking oil.
  • Divide the dough into two parts. Roll the dough into a circle, place the spinach filling on one half, and fold the other half over it. Use a fork to secure the edges. Cut a few lines in the top to allow steam to release during baking. Repeat with the other part of the dough. You should get two calzones.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the calzones are golden brown. Let them cool for 10 more minutes before serving.
