I apologize I have been a little slow to post. Our family became a "party of five" on 2/19/2010 so it's delayed me in getting some schedule down so I can keep on a'blogging! This recipe will be in our freezer next week as I gear up to use up some of my freezer contents in making meals that freeze well and can be reheated or baked and on the table FAST!

You can change up ANY ingredients. Make it vegetarian with ricotta, spinach, mushrooms or any other veggie you need to use up, think lasagna like stuffing! Add your left over meat in the fridge from spaghetti or taco night. This is a great "clean out the fridge" meal to make. Make two, one for tonight and one for next week when there isn't an extra minute to cook!


Shopping list:
1 loaf (1 lb.) frozen bread dough
2 c. of meat of choice, cooked (i.e. 1 c. ground beef, 1 c. sausage)
1/2 c. pepperoni
2 c. shredded cheese (of your liking)
4oz can of mushrooms
1/2 c. sauteed onions
1/2 c. sauteed peppers
olive oil
parmesan cheese
2 eggs

Pizza Stromboli
Yield: 2 pizza loaves

1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread or pizza dough, thawed (watch for my favorite pizza dough recipe in coming weeks, it would work GREAT)!

2 egg yolks (reserve egg whites)

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ tablespoon oregano

16 ounces sliced pepperoni

4 cups (16 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

toppings (optional): 4-ounce can mushrooms, diced red pepper, olives, browned ground beef, browned sausage, and sauteed onions.

On a greased counter top or board, roll out dough into a 10 x 15-inch rectangle. Pick up dough and place it on a foil-lined cookie sheet.

In a bowl, combine egg yolks, parmesan cheese, oil, and dried oregano. Brush this mixture over the dough. Sprinkle with pepperoni, cheese, mushrooms, pepper, olives or other toppings of your choice etc. Roll up, jelly-roll style, then pinch the dough together at the ends to seal.

Turn the roll so that the seam side is down. With a knife, make slits every 2 inches along the top of the dough. Brush top with egg whites.

Wrap one loaf with plastic wrap (use a little cooking spray on the wrap to prevent sticking), label it (with cooking instructions below) and freeze it. Bake the other loaf at 350ºF for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Warm pizza sauce and serve with the sliced loaf for dipping.
