So I tried a little experiment the other day — made myself little strombolis. Worked out pretty well. :) Someone may well have a recipe out there for this already but I didn’t know where to find it… so I did it on my own. :)

I will warn you that the following photographs you are about to witness are NOT professional at all. HAHA! One of these days I’ll shell out the $$ for a good DSLR camera. A girl can dream right?

On to the recipe!


Start out with the  ingredients that you want in your mini-stromboli. I used the reduced-fat crescent rolls and turkey pepperoni to keep the calorie count down on the recipe.

Before getting started, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out 1/2 of the crescent rolls on a greased pan.

Place the ingredients that you want to have in your strom’s. I choose pepperoni only on mine this time, however next time I may add some other things like onion and green pepper.

Cover with cheese — I tried to be neat about this, but failed miserably.

Place the other 1/2 of the crescent rolls over what has been prepared and use a fork to press the edges together.

I decided that they looked a little “unfinished” so I sprinked some Mrs. Dash – Tomato Basil Garlic  on top of each.

It’s ready to go into the oven now!

I got the pizza sauce measured out in a bowl while the strom’s were cooking. About a 1/2 cup of sauce total is perfect for all 4.

Bake for 11-12 minutes… or until they are golden brown.

When they are done cooking, let cool for a couple minutes and then serve with sauce.

And there you have it. Yummy Stroms that are totally kid friendly to make too. (As you can see from my pictures, I could have easily had a kid here helping me!)

    Nice job, Julie! Looks like a good base recipe where you can play around with the ingredients (homemade sauce, different meats, veggies).

  2. I’m going to have to try that! It looks like something the kids will love.
