Want a really cool and easy meal that will get your family into the Halloween spirit? I found this recipe a year or so ago and make it at least once a month. Of course it’s just a normal every day Stromboli and not a Mummy Stromboli all the other months. I usually follow the recipe but sometimes I change it up by using ground beef instead of sausage. I also like to add fresh tomatoes when they are in season and skip the meet all together. Not the pepperoni of course, but the sausage or ground beef. Regardless of the changes it's always a big hit. Give it a try!
- Pork sausage or ground beef or both
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- ½ cup tomatoes, cut into small slices
- ½ cup sliced pepperoni
- 1 can refrigerated pizza crust
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 1 egg white
Set oven to 425°F
1). In a skillet, cook sausage/ground beef and onion over medium heat until sausage/ground beef is no longer pink; drain.
2). Reserve 2 slices of pepperoni; chop remaining pepperoni.
3). Unroll pizza dough onto a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. Using a roller and a small about of flour, roll out the dough to form a rectangle that is about 15”x 9”.
4). Sprinkle the cheese down the center of the dough rectangle. Leave about 2-3 inches of the dough uncovered on each of the long sides and a little less on the shorter sides.
5). Top with the sausage/ground beef, pizza sauce, sliced pepperoni and fresh tomatoes. Then add some more sauce.
6). Using kitchen scissors make cuts in the long side of the dough that are about 2” apart. Cross each strip over the top of the filling and pinch the edges so that they seal.
7). Place 2 pepperoni slices at the top to look like the mummy’s eyes.
8). Brush the egg white over the dough.
Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Cut into slices to serve.
