We’ve never eaten stromboli before, so I can’t say this is an authentic recipe, or could even officially be categorized as stromboli. Over at Fix Me A Snack Cindy affectionately refers to them as Pizza Pinwheels, and we just might steal that name. They’re fun to eat (particularly with ranch dipping sauce), but the name stromboli just sounds so official. Pizza pinwheels it is!
(a.k.a. Pizza Pinwheels)
recipe adapted from Fix Me A Snack
makes 10 stromboli
- 1 pound pizza dough
- 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup pizza sauce
- 1/3 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
- 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- sauteed mushrooms
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Allow the dough to come close to room temperature so that it is easy to work with. Shape into a 6×14 inch rectangle.
- Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Spread on the olive oil then the sauce, cheese, and mushrooms. Tightly roll up the dough and pinch the loose edge to adhere it to the roll.
- Using a serrated knife, slice the log into 2-inch segments. Gently reshape the segments into circles and place 2-3″ apart, swirl side up, on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Bake for 8 minutes or until the dough starts to brown. Allow the stromboli to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet. Serve or transfer to a cooling rack. The stromboli can be frozen in an airtight container for up to a month.
