What's For Dinner Wednesday-Broccoli Stromboli Sandwiches

This is a recipe that I cut out of a  magazine at least two years ago, but just hadn't tried until now.

Here is the stuff on your grocery list for this meal.
1 lb pizza dough (I used thin crust, but I wouldn't recommend, mine turned out to be a little too thin).
all-purpose flour, for work surface
1 lb frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
2 minced garlic cloves
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 cup marinara sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
2 ounces sliced salami ( I used pastrami)
1 tbsp olive oil

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees.  Then line your baking sheet with aluminum foil for a simple clean up. 

Divide your pizza dough into 4 sections.  Roll or press each section in to a 6x8 in oval. 

Place the broccoli in a strainer, and press to remove the excess water.  Transfer to a double layer of paper towels to pat dry. 

Divide the broccoli among the four sections of pizza dough.  You want to leave a 1/2 in border all the way around the dough.  Sprinkle with the garlic, salt, and pepper.  Top with mozzarella, salami, and 1/2 cup marinara.

Now roll the Stromboli, starting with the shortest end.  Seal the ends and place seam side down on the baking sheet. 

Drizzle with the oil and then pop those bad boys in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

Serve each Stromboli with 1/2 cup of marinara for dipping.


Happy Baking!!
