Holy Stromboli!


I had to do a little Easter shopping after work today so I knew I wouldn’t want to make a dinner that took a while when I got home. I remembered I had half of my pizza dough from TJ’s frozen, so I decided to thaw it and make a stromboli.

I used half a package of TJ’s whole wheat pizza dough, rolled it out and topped it with about 1/2 cup shredded lowfat mozzarella, 1/4 cup smoked gouda (which I always have on hand but for some reason never thought to use in a pizza until I read canarygirl’s blog), a link of spicy chicken sausage that I browned in a little EVOO with a clove of garlic and fresh rosemary, and prosciutto. Rolled it into a log with the ends tucked in, brushed it with an egg wash and baked at 425 for about 20-25 minutes.

With the stromboli, I made some zucchini sticks. Basically, zucchini dipped in a beaten egg then in some breadcrumbs that I seasoned. Normally I would add parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs but I already had enough cheese in the stromboli. I then placed the sticks on a sprayed cookie sheet, sprayed the tops with a little more oil, and stuck them in the oven for the same time as the stromboli. Served both with a marinara dipping sauce.
