Quick & Easy Stromboli

When I was single, I loved finding recipes that were not only quick and easy but also resulted in left overs. I tended to make one main dish on Sunday and ate the leftovers until they ran out. Then, I might make a small dish or two until Sunday arrived again.

One dish I discovered during my single years was a quick and easy stromboli. It took me less than 30 minutes to make and left me with another meal the next night. What could be better than that?

Quick & Easy StromboliNow that I’m married with two girls (and one girl on the way), I still make the stromboli, but not nearly as often. It’s a nice variation on pizza night that we all enjoy. And, most importantly with little ones, it is still quick and easy to make.

After I preheat the oven to 425°, I start by unrolling refrigerated pizza dough on a greased (with cooking spray) cookie sheet. I sprinkle 2 cups mozzarella cheese over all the dough.

Next, I add the toppings we want to use. In this case, I love pepperoni and mushrooms. So, I add a lot of pepperoni slices and one drained can of mushrooms (fresh work too, but I was going for quick). Then I sprinkled 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning over the pizza.

Ready to roll!

I rolled the dough like a jelly roll. I pressed the ends to seal them and sealed any other seams. Using a sharp knife, I slashed the dough on top a few places to allow it to vent. Finally, I brushed on 1/4 cup (or less) olive oil and sprinkled on 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder on top.

So, when I asked my husband to get me a sharp knife, he got me a serated knife. I hope this demonstrates why you should not use a serated knife. 😉

I baked the stromboli for 10 minutes, just until it was golden brown, and let it cool for at least 2 minutes. The stromboli was served with a side of warmed pizza sauce for dipping (something my 2-year-old) loves to do.
