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!)
