Stromboli di Pepperoni
As I mentioned a few times, we had a Trader Joe’s move into my neighborhood so I have been swinging by and looking for things to try and experiment with. I was picking up some tortellini and glanced down and noticed that they had pizza dough in these baggies. So I had an idea of trying to make some pepperoni rolls with it so I picked up some smoked mozzarella, provolone and pepperonis along with some red sauce for dipping. Truth in advertising, I made nothing here and used everything from the store.

When I made it home and started working with the dough it really tightened up on me and I didn’t have time to let it rest and relax. So for a plan b I settled on a Stromboli which is basically a giant pizza roll. I tried to shape the dough into a rectangle so I wrestled around with the dough to get close enough. I laid down some shredded smoked mozzarella, topped with pepperoni and a little provolone on top. You could smear a little sauce but you don’t want it to make the dough too wet.

1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Roll out the dough into a rectangle. About a third of the way down, lay your ingredients down and roll it up into a big log shape. Try to seal the seams but inevitably some cheese will leak out and it will make this beautiful crusty cheese on your pizza stone. Cut, serve, dunk and enjoy.
