Call this what you want: pizza rolls, pizza pinwheels, stromboli, but whatever you do–make it! It’s fast, easy and you can layer with practically anything. For this version, I used store bought pizza dough and went traditional, because that’s what boys like most—pepperoni, salami and mozzarella cheese.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’ve been on a pizza roll lately. I don’t know what it is about the end of the school year, but my kids and I usually get into a rut with lunch and after school snacks.
We start off so strong. By strong I mean there’s lots of variety in terms of what I pack for lunch and what I make for after-school snacks. By the time April hits, we are struggling along and lunches look more like leftovers cobbled together and after-school snacks usually resemble the same.
Except for this one. I decided we all needed a little shot in the arm. Thankfully, this pizza roll doesn’t take too long to make with the help of store-bought pizza dough, deli slices of cheese and cold cuts like salami and pepperoni. It may not be the best looking pizza roll or stromboli, but “cobble” the two together with a tired Dad who hasn’t been sleeping well —this is what you get: Pizza Stromboli that is on point with everything in terms of taste and flavor but the execution could use a little technical lift with a tighter roll— but hey, finishing not perfection, right?
