sausage and pepper stromboli
Sausage and Pepper Stromboli
1 lb. store bought pizza dough
Marinara sauce (I used a fire roasted tomato and garlic variety)
4 links hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
Red onion, chopped
Green bell pepper, chopped
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and sprinkle with cornmeal. Spread dough into a 10x15 inch rectangle, and make slices 1" apart 1/3 of the way toward the center of the rectangle on each side.
2. Cook crumbled sausage links in olive oil over medium heat until almost cooked through, add peppers and onions and cook until tender and sausage is browned throughout.
3. Spread sauce, sausage, peppers, onions and mozzarella cheese over the center of the dough. Fold dough by crisscrossing strips across the filling, and brush the outside of the dough with butter. I sprinkled mine with Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Slice and serve with heated marinara sauce, for dipping.
