I use to make a delicious Stromboli when I worked at a pizzeria and I got to thinking about it the other day which, of course, made me hungry for a Stromboli. I happened across an excellent recipe from Pillsbury that I just had to share. I have altered the recipe slightly from Pillsbury but that is the beauty of a Stromboli, you can add or take-away anything from it to make it your own creation!
1/2-lb. of ground sausage
Approximately 24 pieces of pepperoni
1 (13.8-oz.) can of Pillsbury refrigerated classic pizza crust
1/3 cup of pizza sauce
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
Light sprinkle of oregano leaves
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the sausage to brown it in a skillet over Medium heat. Be sure to drain the grease and then set this aside.
Break out a cookie sheet and grease or spray it so the dough will not stick to it. Unroll and spread out the dough over the greased cookie sheet.
Spread the pizza sauce over the dough but be sure to leave 2 inches on the long sides and 1/2 inch on the short side bare. Place the cooked sausage in the center of the dough where the sauce is. Top this with the pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, and oregano. Fold the dough over the fillings starting with the short sides then the long sides. Be sure to pinch the dough closed so that it is sealed.
Bake this in the preheated 400 degree oven for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the crust has turn golden brown.
Once the Stromboli has been cooked, let it cool for a few minutes since the insides will be very hot. This will serve between 4-6 people and is very easy to make with your kids.Please feel free to add or remove any of the ingredients to make this special for you and your family, just be sure to make the portion of the ingredient enough to fit in the Stromboli.
