Instructions Checklist
  • Spicy Pizza Sauce: Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until they are soft, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and wine; cook for an additional minute.

  • Stir in tomato paste, diced tomatoes, red pepper, salt and black pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the vinegar; cool. Freeze leftover pizza sauce for a future Pizza Stromboli or regular pizza.

  • Pizza Stromboli: Makes 1 large Stromboli. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove crescent roll sheet from tube and place on sheet of parchment paper. Roll dough into a 10x14-inch rectangle. Place on baking sheet.

  • Spread 1/2 of cheese down the center third of the dough. Top with 1 cup Spicy Pizza Sauce and 1 cup of chopped vegetables. Top with remaining cheese.

  • Cut 1-inch crosswise strips down the sides of the rectangle. Starting from one end, bring one of the dough strips across the filling diagonally. Repeat on the other side, crisscrossing the dough strips. Continue down the rest of the braid, alternating strips to form the loaf. Brush with egg wash (one egg beaten with a pinch of salt). Sprinkle with dehydrated onions or poppy seed. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Tips

Option: Pepperoni or crumbled cooked sausage could be added when placing the vegetables.

I made this using a can of pizza dough, pizza quick sauce, and favorite toppings. I stretched the pizza dough out in a 9x13 pan just for size. Filled the dough with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese (could have added other toppings but this was all we wanted). Rolled one end of the dough over the toppings, similar to rolling a burrito, then pinched the ends closed. Moved the pizza roll (with the seam down) onto a baking sheet already lined with parchment paper . Brushed the lightly scrambled egg on top of the dough, cut approximately 8 - 2" slits on the top and then baked as noted. I made 2 of these and both turned out with the perfect golden, brown color. I cut them into about 1 1/2" slices. My guests dipped them in the pizza sauce that was heated and kept warm in a small slow cooker. It didn't take anytime for all these to disappear and it did not seem to matter that they cooled to room temperature. Everyone loved these and I'll definitely make them again. It was so quick and easy! Read More
