Quick and Easy Calzones Ingredients

A few weeks ago, I mentioned these quick and easy calzones over on Facebook and everyone wanted the recipe! I thought I should also share it here for easy saving and to give you just one more fun and easy dinner option for your family! 

I love this meal because it’s super simple and everyone can make one of their own and the kids love being able to create it!

They are little chefs!

We had so much fun making them I had to snap pictures! They are so good and so yummy! And so not healthy…but that is not what this post is about! Lol!  Emma was a great teacher!

How to Make Calzones


  • Rhodes Frozen Rolls
  • Pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce
  • Toppings: ground beef, sausage, pepperoni
  • Mozzarella cheese

The Night Before:

Defrost rolls 24 hrs before you plan to make them in a covered container in your refrigerator. (I have had some people make this since my post and said it worked even with just letting the rolls rise for 3 hrs ahead of time!)
