Whether it's game day or just a busy day, our Meatball Calzones are a great choice for both. They're quick to put together, quick to bake, and even quicker to gobble up. And since we like to overstuff our calzones, you can bet everyone will feel full and satisfied!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound store-bought pizza dough
  • 1 (14-ounce) package frozen meatballs, (about 18 meatballs)
  • 1/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, plus extra for dipping
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Divide dough into 2 balls. On a lightly floured surface, spread each dough ball with your fingertips or the heel of your hand to make a 7- to 8-inch circle. Place half the meatballs on each dough circle, forming a semicircle of filling on half of each dough circle and leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge.Evenly distribute mushrooms, spaghetti sauce, and cheese over meatballs. Fold dough over filling, forming half-moons. With your fingers or a fork, pinch edges together firmly to seal.
  3. Place calzones on baking sheet and brush the top of each with 1 teaspoon oil. Pierce the tops 3 or 4 times with a fork or knife.
  4. Bake 18 to 22 minutes, or until crust is golden. Serve with extra spaghetti sauce on the side.



  • Since meatballs vary in size, if the ones you pick up are bigger than a golf ball, cut them in half. 
  • Our All Star Zucchini is a great go-along for these hearty calzones!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Made this but must have gotten distracted as I don't think I did the oil or poked the top but they came out BEAUTIFUL and DELICIOUS. I wish I could post a picture of how they looked (which I took because for my first attempt I thought they looked BEAUTIFUL!). Will be making again tomorrow, which is why I'm revisiting the recipe today.

P. S. We find pizza dough at Price Chopper, ShopRite, and Aldi.

we tried this recipe but the only pizza dough we could find was Pillsbury canned. can you please tell us where to get store bought pizza dough

Hi there! We usually find pizza dough in the bakery section of the grocery store. If they don't carry it, try your local pizza parlor. They will sometimes sell it to customers. If you can't find it either of those ways, use canned pizza dough will work fine. We hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. We would love to hear your feedback. Enjoy!
