Vegetarian ~ Vegan (if vegan cheese is used) ~ Quick and Easy


1 pack neat Italian, cooked into crumbles, according to package instructions
1 jar pizza sauce, we used Muir Glen organic pizza sauce

Shredded mozzarella cheese, or vegan substitute

Pizza dough:

Combine the following 3 ingredients, let sit 10 minutes:
1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water
Then add:
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons salt

Knead 2 minutes, then let rest 5 minutes.  Roll dough into a 1/4″ thick circle

Preheat oven to 450.  To assemble the Stromboli, place pizza dough circle on a pizza pan or cookie sheet.  Spoon 1/3-1/2 cup pizza sauce only on half of the circle.  Top the pizza sauce with the cooked neat crumbles.  Then top with the mozzarella.  Fold the other half of the circle over top of the sauce/neat/cheese side, forming a semi-circle.  Seal the dough together around the edges by pressing a fork into both layers of dough.

Top the unbaked stromboli with the following (optional):

Olive oil, brushed on top
Parmesan cheese, or vegan substitute
Dried basil

Garlic salt

Bake in a 450 oven for 16-20 minutes until golden brown.  Let cool 5 minutes, then slice with a pizza cutter and enjoy!
