This stromboli recipe is amazing! Maybe that's just because we love the ingredients -- Italian sausage, mushrooms, spinach, garlic and cheese. That combo is just irresistible! It's become a new favorite at our house.
Italian Sausage Stromboli - From Cook with Sara
1/2 recipe, no-rise whole wheat pizza dough*
1/2 lb. Ground Italian Turkey Sausage
8oz. spinach, fresh or frozen
4 garlic cloves, minced
8oz mushrooms, sliced
3/4 C mozzarella cheese
2 T Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. olive oil
Begin by preparing your crust using these directions. Shape half of the dough into a circle pizza.
*I make the whole dough recipe, and wrap up the other crust in plastic wrap. Then, I pop that crust into our freezer. I love having extra dough in the freezer.
On days when we want pizza for dinner, or another stromboli, I remove the dough from the freezer in the morning and transfer it to the fridge. When I come home to make dinner, the dough is all ready to go! That really works for me; no extra time making dough.
While the dough is resting, brown the ground turkey in a pan over medium heat until done. We ended up using round Chicken sausage because that's what we had. If you have another filling - try it! This recipe can be versatile.
Then, chop and prepare the veggies.
Add the mushrooms and garlic to the sausage and saute until just about done.
Toss in the spinach and cover, allowing the spinach to wilt. Then, stir to cook to your liking.
Spread the warm filling into the center of the pizza crust.
Sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
To fold; tuck the two side ends up first. Then, bring the halves of the pizza up and fold them over each other.
Slice three small slits in the top of the stromboli, brush with 1 tsp. olive oil and then sprinkle with 1-2 T Parmesan cheese.
Then, get excited - because in 20 minutes, you'll have dinner!
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until the crust is lightly browned.
Allow the stromboli to sit for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
Serve with marinara sauce for dipping, or with a salad or a heaping pile of steamed veggies.
