Ingredients

  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tube (10 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Pizza sauce, warmed, optional

Directions

Cook spinach according to package directions; drain well. In a bowl, combine the spinach, Swiss cheese, ricotta cheese, onion, basil, salt, garlic powder and pepper.
Roll pizza dough into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle; cut into six 5-in. squares. Spoon 1/3 cup spinach mixture onto the center of each square; brush edges of dough with water. Fold one corner over filling to the opposite corner, forming a triangle. Using a fork, crimp edges to seal.
