  • 1 batch homemade pizza dough use your favorite recipe
  • 6 oz tomato sauce or your favorite marinara sauce
  • 6 oz sliced pepperoni
  • 1 TBS Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 large green pepper diced finely
  • 1/4 yellow onion diced finely
  • 10 black olives sliced
  • or your favorite pizza toppings
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 TBS water
  • a little extra Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees with your pizza stone inside
  • In a small saucepan add your tomato sauce and spices, let simmer on low (if you are using your favorite marinara sauce you can skip this part)
  • FOR the stromboli, roll out half of the pizza dough in a rectangle (about 12 inches by 8 inches) on a pizza peel already sprinkled with corn meal and a little flour (to prevent sticking)
  • On the pizza dough spread 2 to 3 TBS of your homemade marinara sauce or store-bought over all but 1 1/2 inches of the long side of the dough
  • Place your pepperoni and pizza toppings over the sauce
  • Spread half of the cheese over the pepperoni and pizza toppings
  • In a small bowl, mix the water with the egg white for an egg wash
  • On the 1 and 1/2 inch pizza dough with nothing on it lightly spread your egg wash
  • Now starting with the side with all the sauce and toppings start to roll up your stromboli longways and tightly
  • End with the uncovered dough on the bottom
  • Take a sharp serrated knife and make quick slices through the dough about every 2 inch
  • Egg wash the top
  • Sprinkle with a little more freshly grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings
  • Slide off your peel onto the heated pizza stone and bake between 8 to 15 minutes (depending on your oven's true temperature) until dough is cooked throughout and lightly browned
  • FOR the calzones, take the other half of the pizza dough and divide into 3 round balls
  • Take each ball of dough and roll into an approximately 7 inch circle on the pizza peel
  • Spread 1 TBS of marinara sauce on half of each circle leaving 1/2 inch edge
  • Top with pepperoni slices, pizza topping, and 1/3 of the remaining cheese over the sauce
  • Fold the other half of the dough over to enclose everything and pinch together with your fingers
  • Egg wash the top of the dough lightly
  • Sprinkle lightly with more Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings
  • Do the same for the other 2 pizza dough circles
  • Slide or use a spatula to remove off the pizza peel onto the pizza stone in the oven
  • Bake for 8 to 15 minutes until dough is cooked throughout and top is lightly browned
  • After both the stromboli and calzones are cooled, wrap in foil, label, and freeze
  • To serve, remove from freezer, while stone is heating let stromboli or calzones thaw
  • Bake just enough to warm throughout, about 5 minutes
