Very Vegetable Stromboli Roll 

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4-6)

  • 1, 1-pound package of premade pizza dough
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, finely diced
  • 1 small white onion, finely diced
  • 8-ounces cremini mushrooms, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1 tomato diced


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan, set over medium heat. Add the pepper, onion, mushrooms, garlic, and salt and pepper to the pan and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, stirring, until the water has cooked out of the mushrooms and the vegetables are soft. Remove from stovetop and let cool slightly.
  3. Roll your pizza dough out on a large baking sheet, in the shape of a rectangle, with about ¼” thickness (it doesn’t have to be perfect!).
  4. Spread the vegetable filling over the dough, in a thin layer, leaving about ½” border around the perimeter. Sprinkle with the cheese, spinach, and tomato.
  5. Carefully, roll the dough into the shape of a log. Place it seam-side down on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes, until the dough is completely cooked through. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes.
  7. Slice and serve!
