how to prepare home-made calzone for freezing??

My plan: Make several calzone at home, and freeze them for later enjoyment.

But: How do I do this, once the actual calzone have been made? I see 3 possibilities. . .
a. Make the calzone, and freeze right away. (ie., uncooked)
b. Bake normally till fully cooked. When done, freeze them once they've cooled.
c. Bake part of the way (to firm up the dough, I would guess). Remove, cool, and freeze in that partly-cooked state.

Anyone actually done this? If so, what did you do? How did they turn out? What did you do to re-heat them? (Temperature? Wrapped or not in foil? etc.) Do the calzone go right from freezer to heated oven, or; first defrost, and then bake??

Thanks for any tips.
