“From BHG "Make Ahead Cooking" This recipe is perfect for all those Turkey Dinner leftovers! You can also make these into smaller calzones to serve as appetizers.”
8 calzones

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 ounces oven-roasted turkey breast, chopped or 12 ounces leftover cooked turkey
  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 12 cups of shredded 4-cheese pizza cheese or 1 12 cups your favorite kind cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) can pizza sauce
  • 1 pizza dough (I use Pizza Dough or use 2 pkgs store bought dough)
  • 18 cup milk
  • 4 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese (optional) or 4 teaspoons romano cheese (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine turkey, spinach, the shredded cheese, and 1/2 cup of the pizza sauce. On a lightly floured surface, roll one package of pizza dough out to a 12x12-inch square. Cut into 4 6x6 inch squares.
  2. Place about 1/2 cup of the turkey mixture onto half of each square to within about 1 inch of edge. Moisten edges of dough with water and fold over, forming a rectangle or a triangle. Pinch or press with a fork to seal edges. Prick tops of calzones with a fork; brush with milk and place on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Repeat with remaining dough and turkey mixture. If desired, sprinkle top of each calzone with about 1/2 teaspoon grated Parmesan or Romano cheese. Bake calzones in a 375 degree F. oven about 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining pizza sauce. Makes 4 calzones.
  4. To Make-Ahead: Prepare and bake calzones as above. Cool, wrap, label, and chill overnight or freeze up to 1 month. To serve, thaw frozen calzones in refrigerator overnight. Unwrap and place on baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until heated through.
