Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 loaves frozen bread dough (Italian, french, or pizza)
  • 6 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese, to taste (we usually use more)
  • 5 cups spaghetti sauce


  1. Thaw two loaves of bread dough.
  2. Divide each loaf into five parts each.
  3. One at a time, roll each dough piece on a floured board or stretch with your hands, making 10 7 inch squares.
  4. Fold each dough square over half a cheese slice to form a turnover, and pinch edges to seal.
  5. (You can also ladle 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup sauce into center of each square before making the turnover, but the sauce tends to seep out). Place each turnover in a small sandwich bag.
  6. Put 5 turnovers in a 1 gallon freezer bag.
  7. Divide sauce in half, and store in 2 1-quart freezer bags; enclose each bag of sauce in a bag of calzones.
  8. Do the same with the remaining 5 turnovers.
  9. To prepare for serving, thaw sauce; heat in a medium pan 10-15 minutes until bubbly.
  10. At the same time, take frozen turnovers out of bags, and place them about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet sprayed with a nonstick spray.
  11. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  12. Bake for 15 minutes.
  13. Turnovers will be golden brown when done.
  14. Ladle sauce on top of turnovers, and serve.
