Prepare hot roll in according to package directions. While dough is rising, brown ground beef and onion; drain fat. Add seasoning, water and tomato paste. Set aside. Squeeze excess moisture from frozen spinach and combine with ricoota cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. After fillings are prepared, divide dough into 3 portions and roll each into a 9 inch circle. Fit one portion into a buttered 9 inch spring form pan. Spread meat almost to the edge of dough. Sprinkle cheese on top of meat. Add next layer of dough and let rise for 10 minutes. Spread with spinach mixture. Place remaining dough on top and cover with a damp cloth. Set pan in warm place and allow to rise about 40 minutes. When double in size, score top with a sharp knife into 8 pie shaped wedges. Brush top with egg. Bake on lower oven rack at 350 for 40-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
