This Stromboli was a big hit with my family. They loved the combo of meats and sauciness. Add whatever veggies you like. Mushrooms would be great in this as well. It's sloppy, but so good. Enjoy!

How To Make ~ meat lovers italian stromboli ~

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 degree F. In a medium skillet, add about a tablespoon oil and over medium heat, crumble sausage and add the salt and pepper. Brown together until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Drain. Add the oregano.
  • 2
    Now, stir in the sauce and simmer for a minute or two. Cool while preparing crust.
  • 3
    Spray a large sheet pan, with nonstick cooking spray. Spread out the pizza dough. ( try not to tear dough like I did) Down the center of the dough ( lengthwise), place the salami in two rows. On top of that spread out the pepperoni.
  • 4
    Now, spread the meat sauce evenly over the salami and pepperoni. Add the cheese and sprinkle with parsley.
  • 5
    If need be, stretch dough over the top so it overlaps. Fold in and pinch the ends, flip over so seam is on the bottom.
  • 6
    Brush top with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and basil. Place in oven and bake for 20 - 25 minuted or until golden brown.
  • 7
    Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with sauce or without. Enjoy! It's quite tasty.
