Spinach Chicken Stromboli

What is a Stromboli?
   ~ Type of turnover filled with various cheeses & meats.  The dough is Italian bread. 

 This is a simple Stromboli recipe.  You won't have to go out and hunt for any weird, unheard of, strange ingredients.  With this delicious recipe you can a variety of things ... Vegetables, Meat & Carbs.  You can also use different meat in it to make it fit your craving. I made 2 ~ One I put the mozzarella cheese inside of it & the other I put it on the top of it. Yummy either way.

Spinach Chicken Stromboli
1 refrigerated pizza crust
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp Italian seaoning
3 1/2 tbsp parmesan cheese ~ canned
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups spinach leaves ~ loosely packed
2 cups shredded chicken ~ cooked
2 roma tomatoes ~ diced
Pasta sauce of choice for dipping

On floured surface, roll pizza dough into a 12x15 rectangle.  Brush about 1 1/2 tsp olive oil over the entire dough surface.  Sprinkle Italian seasoning & 2 tbsp parmesan cheese evenly over dough  Evenly spread spinach, chicken, tomatoes & mozzarella cheese over dough ~ Keeping the toppings about one inch away from edges.

Working from the long side of rectangle, roll the dough up from one end to the other, like you do with cinnamon rolls.  Pinch the dough seam shut and then tuck ends under.  Place seam down on a a greased baking sheet. Brush remaining olive oil on top of roll and sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese.  Make 3 small slits on top of the Stromboli. 

Bake at temperature directed on pizza dough package.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown.  Cool for 10 minutes before slicing into 1-2 inch slices.  Serve with choice of dipping sauce.
