Good Afternoon Bloggers! Welcome to a brand new edition of Everyday Meals. As always, I'm your fun host, Mandie. Today, we are going to be making Stromboli. Stromboli is basically a turnover filled with delicious meats, cheeses, and vegetables. The Stromboli originated right outside of Philly in 1950 by a man named Nazzareno Romano. This man was a genius, honestly. Well, with our little lesson, my hunger has grown exponentially. Let's get in the kicthen and get our Italian on!


You will need:

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 (13.8 ounce) can refrigerated classic pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green and red bell pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning


  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. 
  3. Brown the ground beef in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently, then drain and set aside.
  4. Unroll the dough and place on the sprayed cookie sheet. Starting at the center, press out the dough with your hands to form a 12x8 inch rectangle. 
  5. Spread the sauce over the dough to within 2 inches of the long sides and 1/2 inch of short sides. 
  6. Place the cooked ground beef lengthwise down the center, forming a 3 inch wide strip. 
  7. Top with cheese, bell pepper and Italian seasoning. 
  8. Fold the long sides of dough over the filling, then press the edges to seal. 
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  10. Enjoy!

I hope you all have enjoyed this edition of Everyday Meals. I'm going to leave you all with this awsome song that I enjoy dancing to very much, in hopes that it gets you all dancing as well. Have a great day and I'll catch you on the flip side. Happy Blogging to all! <3
