Ingredients

• 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
• 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
• 1 1/4 cups warm water (110 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 cups whole-wheat flour
• 3 pounds fresh spinach, rinsed and stems removed
• 2 medium onions, finely chopped
• 2/3 cup lemon juice
• 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
• 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
Preparation

• In a small bowl, stir together yeast, sugar and hot water; set aside until bubbles form on the yeast's surface.
• Stir in salt and olive oil. Place flour in a large bowl, then stir in yeast mixture and bring mixture together to form a soft dough.
• Working on a lightly floured surface, use your hands to knead the dough until it's satiny smooth and soft, about 15 minutes.
• Cover dough with a clean towel and set aside to rest.
• Coarsely chop the spinach. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add spinach.
• Cook spinach 2 minutes, or just until wilted; drain very well and return to the pot. Add onions, lemon juice, garlic, basil, mint, and garlic salt.
• Cook and stir spinach mixture 2 minutes more to blend the flavors.
• Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 230 degrees C.
• Meanwhile, cut the dough into golf-ball size pieces and roll into 5-inch diameter disks about 1/4-inch thick.
• Place 1 tablespoon of spinach filling in the middle of each disk.
• Be sure to stir the spinach mixture frequently so the juice doesn't separate.
• Fold up three sides of the disk to make a triangle, leaving a small hole in the center to release steam while baking.
• Bake 10 to15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and cool on racks. 
Additional Notes
Its a good idea to have multiple pans going at one time to make the cook ... otherwise the 2 hours could turn into a half a day. :)
