Stromboli or Pizza Rolls… What’s it gonna be??
THIS is by far my newest FAVORITE recipe… I have been playing and playing with it and I have now, what is the perfect combination of ingredients to make AMAZING Stromboli – or to cut the Stromboli prior to baking and make EASY and DELICIOUS pizza rolls… which the kids prefer!
The great news is this recipe is for 2 – so we always make one of each!
I started with actual dough – which you can certainly use, but quickly reverted to Pillsbury Pizza Crust… they have perfected it, and who am I to challenge that??!!
Lay out the dough, Mix up your “saucey” ingredients and cover the dough, add your pizza preferences…. We go for plain old pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, but I have used burger and swiss, ham and provolone or cheddar and I am working on a bacon, egg and cheese breakfast variety.
Roll the dough like a jelly roll – use the remaining egg whites as a wash and sprinkle with a bit more garlic and Parmesan, then bake as a Stromboli or cut into 1” slices and bake as pizza rolls.
Start with 2 crusts… lay them out on a cookie sheet.
Mix up this ‘sauce’ and spread 1/2 on each crust:
• 2 egg yolks (save the whites to use as a wash)
• 1 TBS parmesan cheese
• 1 tsp Italian seasoning
• 1⁄2 tsp garlic powder
• 1/2 tsp onion powder
• 1⁄4 tsp pepper
• 1 vegetable oil
• 1 TBS jalapeno juice (right from the jar of slices)
Add your pizza toppings, split between the 2 crusts:
• 1 bag (5 oz.) pepperoni
• 1 bag (2 cups) of cheese
• Any other favorites you have – sausage, peppers, onions, olives….
• Any sauce (jarred pizza or spaghetti or of course your own homemade) – for dipping once cooked.
Roll each crust up like a jelly roll, and make a wash of the remaining egg whites – by whisking with 2 TBS water – and spread over roll, then shake down with additional parmesan and garlic….
Bake the Stromboli as is, or cut in 1” slices (like cinnamon rolls) and bake as pizza rolls.
Bake at 400 for about 25 minutes.
Serve with a warmed bowl of dipping sauce!
