Take everyone’s favorite meat lover’s pizza, roll it up and you’ve got a Super Stromboli in less time than it takes to wait for pizza delivery. Sliced deli meats, prepared pizza dough and ready-to-use real bacon are the ingredients combined in this stromboli that will please the whole family. I like to use turkey pepperoni to minimize the fat in the recipe, but you can substitute full-fat pepperoni or hard salami.
Use the recipe as a base to create other variations. And, if your supermarket or local pizzeria sells ready-to-bake fresh pizza dough, by all means use it. The stromboli may take as much as 20 minutes longer to bake since real pizza dough is sold in one-pound packages. You can tell when the stromboli is done by inserting an instant-read thermometer into the center. A reading of 200 degrees F indicates that all of the dough should be completely baked.
The stromboli is delicious served with warm pizza sauce for dipping. It is a great weeknight family entrée or can be served as part of a hearty Super Bowl appetizer buffet.
Makes 6 main dish or 12 appetizer servings.
