Preheat oven to 425°F. Rinse broccoli and roughly chop, discarding thick stem and leaves. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice. Mince garlic. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add broccoli and sauté, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes.
Once broccoli is tender, drizzle another ½ tablespoon olive oil around broccoli, add onion, and sauté until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in spice mix, crushed red pepper (skip or use half for less heat), and half of garlic. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and sauté until garlic is fragrant, 2-3 minutes more. Remove pan from heat and stir in ricotta. Set aside.
Sprinkle flour onto a clean, dry surface. Divide pizza dough into 2 equal pieces and, using a rolling pin or the heels of your hands, roll each piece into a circular shape, about ⅛-inch thick. Place half of filling on 1 side of each dough and sprinkle over Cheddar. Fold dough over filling and pinch edges tightly together to seal well. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheet and cut a 1-inch slit on top of each for steam to escape.
Bake Calzones and Make Marinara
Bake calzones until golden brown and crisp, about 25 minutes. Meanwhile, wipe pan from vegetables clean and add 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add remaining garlic and sauté, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Stir in chopped tomatoes. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until flavors are melded, 10-12 minutes.
Cut calzones on a diagonal and serve with marinara sauce for dipping. Dig in!
