Dinner Shortcuts: Easy stromboli
Homemade stromboli is one of my favorite dishes. It's almost like it combines my love of pizza and sandwiches. OK, I know it's not really like a sandwich but I love that I can grab and go without any mess. I can never seem to do that with a slice of pizza.
Yields 2-4 servings
- 1 canned roll pizza dough (found in the refrigerated aisle near canned biscuits)
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- Optional fillers: pepperoni, cooked sausage, onions, green peppers and olives
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Unroll dough onto prepared baking sheet and make sure that it's an even rectangle.
- In a small bowl mix together ricotta cheese and marinara sauce. Spread evenly over the top of the dough, leaving about a 2-inch space from the edge of the dough.
- Top with cheese and any other desired toppings.
- Fold the long sides up over the top and connect in the middle. Gently pinch the top together so it's sealed. Pinch the ends and tuck under the dough.
- Bake for about 20-25 minutes until the dough is fully cooked and lightly golden brown.
- Serve plain or with a side of warmed marinara if desired.
