A journey of cooking vegan food for my family.

Two recipes, one delicious dinner…..

For dinner tonite, I made stromboli.  It was delicious.  I filled it with homemade sundried tomato pesto, vegan pepperoni, mushrooms, Daiya cheese,  and spinach. 

Stromboli  

2 pizza dough

2 handfuls fresh spinach, rinsed

2 vegan pepperoni sausages, chopped & pan-fried

2c sun dried tomato pesto

1c vegan mozzarella cheese

olive oil

cornmeal

 Preheat oven to 450F.  If using a pizza stone*, place it in the oven to warm, divide the pizza dough in half.  On a floured surface, roll each pizza dough into a 10X14 rectangle.  Cover the each rectangle with spinach, pepperoni, pesto, and cheese.  Make sure to leave a 1” border around the edges.  Roll the stromboli into a log.  Make sure to seal the dough by pinching the edges and sides.  If using a pizza stone, sprinkle with a little cornmeal. Place the stromboli on the hot pizza stone.  Lightly brush the top of the stromboli with olive oil. Turn oven down to 400F.  Bake the stromboli for 35 minutes.  Once done baking, remove the stromboli and let sit for 5 minutes.  Slice with a serrated edge knife and serve.  *If you do not have a pizza stone, you can use a cookie sheet.  Variation:   The toppings can be switched to your liking, mushrooms, peppers, onions, fresh herbs, etc.  Yield:   2 stromboli

I used the pesto as a sauce for the stromboli.  It was perfect. I love having fresh basil in our yard.  Yay summer!
