Here's a new alternative to pizza -- Stromboli. It's basically all the same ingredients that go into pizza and everyone loves, but wrapped up in a neat packet. Plus, it just sounds a little fancier than your traditional pie.
Starting with refrigerated pizza dough, they take just minutes to make and bake. Serve with a salad, and you have a meal. The following is a basic recipe a friend shared with me, but you can adjust it all sorts of ways by mixing and matching various ingredients.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Unroll dough and place on cookie sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Press out dough with hands to form one 12x8 rectangle.
Spread sauce over dough to within 2 inches of long sides and 1/2 inch of short sides.
Place cooked meat and vegetables lengthwise down center, forming 3-inch-wide strip and to within 1/2 inch of short sides.
Top with cheese and Italian seasoning.
Fold long sides of dough over filling; press edges to seal.
Bake at 400°F. for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
