Simple Stromboli

I love finding ridiculously easy meals that my family loves. Who doesn’t? It’s pretty much what this blog is based on. My kids are slowly finding out that there are foods they refuse to eat, and Hubbs has always been “sure of what he likes.” Making my job in the kitchen a full time one! I don’t often try new recipes, but some nights I am in a pinch and want to just do something quick. Google usually comes up with a few gems in my last hour of need.  This one turned out to be a winner.

I had already tested an easy, yeast less, pizza dough so this recipe seemed like a cinch. Now I am glad to added to my list of regulars, what I call VIP recipes. Best part is that it is so versatile and easy to personalize. So when Big E says “I DON’T LIKE PEPPERONI” I can easily appease the picky palates. It’s also a great recipe to get the kids used to helping in the kitchen, stuffing your own stromboli is a family affair in my house. Plus, the kids are kinda cute when they are covered in flour.

  • I love that these are simple enough to really “stuff” with anything you have on hand.
  • Last minute meal, I only had mozzarella cheese sticks & pepperoni… Pizza crust recipe and they were instant pizza sticks!
  • Do not overcook; crust will dry out when overcooked!
