Mrs. K’s Sicilian Stromboli
Who loves Stromboli??? The students I teach at Penn Cambria High School sure do! I use this recipe to show my class how to use whole wheat flour and low fat protein in their meals without sacrificing flavor. After tasting it, they all love this recipe and even head home to make it for their families. It has become a community favorite!
You can use the turkey versions of the proteins, as suggested in the recipe or you can substitute the regular versions of those ingredients as well. Both options work great!
Give one of my variations a try, as shown below the recipe as well.
- onion - 1 medium, chopped
- garlic, - 3 cloves, minced
- olive oil - 1 tablespoon
- turkey sausage - 8 ounces
- whole wheat pizza dough - 1 pound (substitute with regular if neccesary)
- dried parsley - 1 teaspoon
- dried basil - 1 teaspoon
- Italian cheese - 1 1/2 cups, grated
- deli ham - 4 slices
- turkey pepperoni - 30 slices
- egg - 1, beaten
- Tomato sauce - for serving, if desired
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
Preheat large skillet to medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, onions and garlic and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until onions are translucent. Add turkey sausage and cook until browned and no longer pink. Be sure to break up chunks of sausage to get bite-size pieces of sausage. Remove from heat to cool.
Roll out the pizza dough to fit the length of the baking sheet, about 14 inches by 10 inches. Sprinkle the surface of the dough with parsley and basil. Lay the ham down the middle of the dough. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the ham evenly. Next, layer on the turkey sausage mixture, Italian cheese and turkey pepperoni. Once the fillings are added, take one long side of the dough and gently pull it over the filling. Repeat with the other side. It should look like a giant burrito. Fold up the ends of the dough and seal edges by pressing lightly. Cut three small vent holes in the top of the stromboli to allow for steam to escape. Brush with the beaten egg for a golden brown finish.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until the top crust is golden brown. Let rest it for 5 minutes before serving. Slice with a chef’s knife or pizza cutter and serve with warm tomato sauce on the side. A side salad of romaine, tomatoes and cucumbers is a great pairing.
