Stromboli with Greens
This is a very simple, delicious, and fun change-up to flat pizza. It's also versatile; experiment with other seasonal veggies of your choice.
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 c. chopped mild onion
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
2 c. thinly sliced mushrooms and/or zucchini or eggplant
2 c. packed fresh greens (spinach, chard, beet greens)- stems removed
1 lb. prepared pizza dough, room temperature
1/2 c. chopped tomato, or halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 c. shredded mozarrella cheese
1 egg, beaten
Move oven rack to one of the lower positions. Preheat oven to 425.
Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for 1-2 minutes, or until soft and aromatic.
Stir in the mushrooms or zucchini, and cook until soft. Add the spinach, stirring until it has wilted.
On a floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle about 10" x 15".
Spoon the veggie mixture down the middle of the dough, lengthwise. Scatter the tomato and cheese over the mixture. Brush the exposed dough borders with beaten egg.
Roll into a fat, squat french bread shape; tuck ends under, have seam on bottom.
Brush with beaten egg, and cut 3-4 little slits on top. Bake about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Allow to rest about 10 minutes before slicing.
