Crust for frozen meat pies?

I’ve made way too much of a Japanese curry that I think might make a good filling for meat pies. I’d like to make a crust (top and bottom) and freeze small pies for baking later. But I’m not sure what kind of crust to use, or how to prepare it for freezing.
 

Maybe I’ve been watching too much Bake Off, but I was thinking about using a hot water crust. But I’ve no clue if that would freeze well. 

 

Does anyone have advice to share?

freeze the filling in portion size chunks.

make the crust fresh when thawing the filling.... heat the thawed filling and/or use a parbaked crust.

 

tried DIY chicken pot pies once - disastrous. 

apparently one needs a blast freezer ( at minus forty billion degrees....) to pull off that trick.
