Recipe Notes

CAN YOU FREEZE CALZONES?

Yes! To freeze baked calzones, allow the leftover calzones to cool completely before wrapping tightly with plastic wrap or foil. Store the individually wrapped calzones in a large Ziploc freezer bag for up to 3 months.

When you're ready to reheat the calzones, you can thaw them in the refrigerator overnight and then bake, uncovered, in an oven or toaster oven at 300 degrees F until heated through. You can also reheat the calzones in a microwave on high power in 30-second increments until warmed through.

If you prefer to reheat a frozen calzone directly from the freezer, you will simply need to extend the baking time.
