3 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
1-2 tablespoons pizza sauce
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon minced onion
1/4 cup browned sausage
3-4 strips thinly sliced green bell pepper
3-4 pepperoni slices


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine rolls together and roll into a 7-inch circle.

Spread pizza sauce on half of the circle staying one inch away from the edge. Cover pizza sauce with cheese. Sprinkle on onion and sausage. and green pepper evenly, then top with pepperoni.

Wet the edge of the dough with the fillings on it. Fold the other half of the dough over the filled half and use a fork to press edges together to seal. Cut a few half-inch holes in the top to vent. Gently lift and place on a sprayed baking sheet.

    Calzones are traditionally use a ricotta/mozzarella mixture. This is just a stromboli.

      Can I make stromboi ahead and freeze them. And bake at another time?

        Thanks for your question! You could make the calazone and bake it and then freeze them. Once the dough is thawed it cannot be refrozen or it will damage the yeast and it won’t rise. So after freezing just cover them with aluminum foil and put them in a 350 degree oven until it is warmed through. Sometimes the sauce might make the bread a little soggy doing it this way, so you make want to try it beforehand if you’re entertaining. Hope this helps!

      Thanks for your question. Just let it thaw so you can roll it out. Then put the toppings on it and seal it and then I would let it rise for about 30-45 minutes. Hope this helps!
