I found this recipe for Stromboli a couple of weeks ago and decided to give it a try, but I gave it my own twist. Being the frugal person I am, I made a batch of my crescent roll dough to use instead of store bought pizza dough. Yes, I have a pizza dough recipe, but I thought this would give it a really nice flavor, and it did. So, here’s my version of Stromboli (makes 2).
|1 crescent dough recipe
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 Tbs Italian Seasoning
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
pizza sauce (I used homemade)
1 Tbs. water
- Make dough and let rise.
Brown ground beef with Italian Seasoning; drain, reserving a small amount of drippings from meat.
Saute onion and bell pepper until onions are translucent; remove from pan. Gather the rest of the ingredients together.
Divide dough into thirds. (You will only need 2. Make the other into crescent rolls and freeze for later use.) Roll dough out into a rectangle approximately 12 x 8 inches in size.
- Spread with sauce.
- Add half the hamburger.
- Add sauted peppers and onions.
- Top with cheese.
- Fold in short ends.
- Next, fold over each long sides, and pinch all seams closed.
Beat egg and water together and brush Stromboli with egg wash.
Bake in a 400* over for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! It smelled wonderful while baking, tastes just as good! My whole family loved it, and that’s saying a lot since I have 2 extremely picky eaters.
