Roasted Turkey Calzones

Cynthia Smith

Whether served for lunch or dinner, these roasted turkey calzones are a treat fresh or from the freezer!


  • 1 pound of chopped roasted or cooked turkey breast (perfect use for leftovers)

  • 2 1/2 cups of fresh chopped spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded four cheese pizza cheese (can substitute mozzarella)
  • 1 14 or 15 ounce jar of pizza sauce
  • 2 10-ounce packages of refrigerated pizza dough
  • Milk


In a large bowl, combine the turkey, spinach, cheese and 1/2 cup of the pizza sauce. On a lightly floured surface, roll each package of pizza dough out to a 12 x 12 inch square. Cut each square into four 6 x 6 inch squares. Spread about 2/3 cup of the turkey mixture onto half of each square to just about 1/2 inches of the edge. Moisten the edges of the dough with water and fold over, forming rectangles or triangles. Pinch and press with a fork to seal the edges. Prick the tops of the calzones with a fork, brush with milk and place on a large greased baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle the tops with your choice of cheese. Bake the calzones at 375 degrees for 18 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately with the remaining pizza sauce or freeze.


To freeze the Roasted Turkey Calzones, place the calzones on a lightly greased baking sheet, cover loosely and freeze until firm. Transfer to a freezer container or bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

To serve frozen Roasted Turkey Calzones, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until heated through.

Roasted Turkey Calzones yields 8 servings.

Although I've never froze them, I've made pepperoni rolls for years. Just fill the dough (I make home made pizza dough) with sliced pepperoni and cheeses. You can add some sauce if you want, I usually don't. Prick with a fork and bake. These are great for lunches or picnics. YUM.
