  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 16 ounces thawed pizza dough
  • 1 cup chopped smoked turkey breast and dark meat
  • 16-20 pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 14 ounces jar pizza sauce
  • 1 small bell pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • Flour for rolling
  • Olive oil
  • Shredded parmesan optional garnish


  • Preheat oven for 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment, brush with a little olive oil (or use cooking spray) and set aside.
  • Form pizza dough into 4 equal-sized balls.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough ball into an 8-inch disc.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce onto one-half of the surface of each dough round. Set aside remaining sauce to serve on top of the turkey calzones.
  • Next, add 4-5 slices of pepperoni, then chopped turkey, peppers, onions, and cheese.
  • Carefully fold the other half of the dough over the filling, gently press the edges together, and crimp them closed.
  • Using an oiled spatula, carefully transfer the calzones to the parchment-lined baking sheet
  • Using a fork, lightly puncture the calzones to release steam as they cook. Brush the tops with olive oil, and place the pan into the oven.
  • Bake the turkey calzones for 15-17 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove calzones from the oven and place them onto a platter. Let them cool for a few minutes.
  • Heat the remaining pizza sauce in a small pot on your stovetop for 1-2 minutes.
  • Spoon pizza sauce over the calzones, top with shredded parmesan, and serve.
