Sometimes what was originally intended for dinner falls to the wayside when unexpected life events throw a wrench into your plans and you have to come up quick with Plan B. Thankfully, I had all the ingredients on hand last night and even homemade frozen pizza sauce in the freezer. I’m happy to report Plan B was a tasty succes!
- pizza dough (home made or you can buy the ready made kind)
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 tsp. Oregano
- 1 tsp. Basil
- 1 tsp. Italian Seasonings
- 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds
- 2 tbsp. parmesan, grated
- 4 oz. Mozzarella slices
- 2 oz. deli ham, sliced
- 2 oz. salami, sliced
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp. water
- Marinara or pizza sauce for dipping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Prepare your dough and roll into a rectangle or unroll the ready made dough and shape into a rectangle. Make the egg wash by whisking together the egg with 2 tbsp. water. Transfer dough to the prepared baking sheet and brush 1″ around edge with egg wash. Drizzle the olive oil over the center and spread up to the edge of the egg wash. Crush the garlic and sprinkle over the olive oil.
In a small bowl, whisk together the oregano, basil, Italian seasonings and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle 2/3 of the seasoning mix over the garlic. Layer the mozzarella cheese in rows over the seasoning mix. Over half of the rectangle, layer the ham in rows and over the other half layer with the salami in rows. Starting from the side with the salami, tightly roll to the other side, pinching the sides to seal. Roll seam side down and brush with egg wash. Add the poppy seeds to the remaining seasoning mix and sprinkle over the top of the Stromboli. Using a serrated knife, make light diagonal slashes along the length of the Stromboli. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to rest for 3-5 minutes before cutting. Serve with warm marinara sauce.
