I decided I was going to make Calzones because my family loves them and they are relatively inexpensive. Then I decided they would make a super freezer meal. I gathered all the toppings you would need to make an awesome pizza.
ricotta cheese, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, cooked chicken, corn, frozen peppers, mushrooms, fresh garlic, Pepperoni, Italian Meat, cottage cheese and ziplock freezer bags. I bought a hug box of dough at Sam’s club for really cheap. I decided I was going to make my own flavor Calzones with what I had on hand.
I divided each ball of dough into fourths. I could have done fifths because we have five in our family but my husband likes his calzones stuffed to the hilt.
Then I cooked the mushrooms, frozen peppers which are a must from Trader Joe’s, garlic, in olive oil.
Then I stuffed the calzones with my favorite treats. This is the veggies with the frozen corn and cheese and the meat is chicken from the night before.
This is just the cheeses and the Italian meat and pepperoni.
Next I wrapped them up. Then I placed them in the oven at 350 degree for 20- 25 minutes depending on how stuffed I made them.
I placed them on a plate once I was done cooking them to cool. When they were cool I placed them in the ziplock bags. I frozen them.
Dinner take #2 Freezer cooking
When we were ready to have these again I placed them in the refrigerator,.Then I put them in the toaster oven until they were hot. You can also put them in the oven in for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. I am going to be making these again soon what a super easy dinner or lunch recipe! I love making one mess and having several meals.
