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.

I substituted zucchini for the mushrooms and made pizza dough in the bread machine.

MY REVIEW

These are delicious! I added olives and chilies to my recipe, with a bit of brown sugar to sweeten things up.
