Lazy Gluten Free: Pepperoni Stromboli with Pillsbury Dough

Pepperoni Stromboli with Pillsbury Dough

When I found out that Pillsbury was going to be releasing a line of gluten-free ready made doughs, I was like a little kid at Christmas. So when I was at my local Meijer and saw that the new doughs were in stock, I couldn't resist buying two of each kind. I know, I get a little too excited about food. 

I have only tried the pizza dough so far, but I am definitely impressed. This was some of the easiest gluten free dough I have worked with; it was easy to roll out, wasn't super sticky, and didn't crumble at the slightest touch. I decided to make Stromboli with the pizza dough since I haven't had that in over five years. I had a pretty easy time assembling it, and the dough stuck together and held perfectly while baking. My husband and I loved the consistency and flavor of the crust and I will most certainly be using it again. Yay for easy gluten free options! :)

Pepperoni Stromboli

You will need:
1 container Pillsbury Gluten Free Pizza Dough
Hormel pepperoni slices
1 small jar pizza or pasta sauce (I use Prego)
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
Any other toppings you like (mushrooms, onion, pepper, sausage, etc)

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

1) Place dough on prepared baking sheet and roll or press out into a rough rectangle (about 12-15" long by 8-10" wide). Don't roll the dough too thin or it will break while folding in toppings.

2) Cover the flattened dough with pizza/pasta sauce leaving 1-2 inches on each side. Add toppings and cover with shredded cheese.

3) Carefully fold the sides of the dough up to form a long wide roll. Pinch the two ends together to seal the ingredients in. Fold the ends of the dough up and press to seal. Be gentle with the dough as it does like to break. If you get any holes, try to press the dough back together to reseal. Top with some additional cheese and sprinkle with oregano.

4) Bake for 12-15 minutes or until dough is a nice golden brown and cheese is melted. Let cool for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving. Serve with additional sauce for dipping.
