I am exhausted. After weeks of travel, family, weddings, sick babies, and holiday revelries, I am completely drained. I’m sure you have similar feelings. I think we all do. So today, I did something I rarely do…I bought canned pizza crust. I know what your thinking, “big deal” , but I feel a little guilty about it. For $2.59 I bought a tube of convenience instead of making the same thing for less than a dollar.
Okay, I’m over it. On to the food.
So I made a stromboli. You know, it’s basically pizza rolled into a loaf. It’s really a genius invention. You could put anything in a stromboli. You could clean out your fridge with a stromboli. It’s a good way to sneak some veggies to unsuspecting family members, or use up the tail end of that holiday ham. If you don’t want to use canned bread, try the Refridgerator Dough.
1 can of pizza dough
2Tbsp. corn meal
Meat, cheese and veggies for filling
I used Italian seasoning, turkey pepperoni, black olives, tomatoes, mozzarella, and about 1/4 cup marinara
Preheat your oven to 425. Sprinkle corn meal on to surface and roll out pizza dough until it is about a 1/4″ thick. Transfer to a greased cookie sheet. Place filling ingredients in a thin layer across dough leaving about a 1/2″ around the edges so you can seal the ends. Roll the dough up from the short end. Pinch the seam and the ends closed and place seam side down on cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Slice with a serrated knife and serve with marinara as a dipping sauce.
