Bread dough makes it a breeze to assemble these savory turnovers from Lee Ann Arey of Gray, Maine. "If you have a favorite pizza dough, use it instead," she recommends. "These freeze well and once they are frozen, they can be heated in half an hour."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2013

"I have made this a couple of times as a freezer meal for friends having babies and they have raved about them. I like that you can individually freeze them and take them out as needed. I also add sausage or turkey sausage to them for some extra flavor. I also use my bread machine pizza dough recipe (doubled) for the dough."

"These are fairly simple to make and always turn out well. I freeze them individually to use as a quick dinner or lunch later on."

"I want to try my homemade pizza dough instead of the bread dough next time. Also added turkey sausage to them. They tasted good but weren't so pretty to look at! I need to get better at shaping them LOL."
