DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Lightly grease a very large baking sheet and sprinkle with cornmeal, set aside.
  • Drain tomatoes well, reserving oil.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, turkey and/or pepperoni, and olives.
  • Stir in the mozzarella cheese.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each package of pizza dough to a 12 x 9 rectangle.
  • Using a 3 inch round cutter, cut each rectangle into ten 3 inch circles.
  • Place about 1 tablespoon of the meat/cheese mix slightly off centre on each dough circle.
  • Fold dough over mixture, forming a semicircle.
  • Seal the edge of each semicircle with the tines of a fork.
  • Place the calzones on a prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush the tops with the reserved oil from tomatoes and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and, if desired, cayenne pepper.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until calzones are golden.
  • Serve warm.
  • MAKE AHEAD: Prepare and bake calzones as directed.
  • Remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
  • Place the calzones in a freezer container or freezer bag.
  • Seal, label and freeze for up to 2 months.
  • To reheat, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place the frozen calzones on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until heated through.
  • If necessary, cover loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning.
