Spinach and Mushroom Stromboli (or pepperoni, or sausage, or whatever!)

This one is a staple in our house. Jeremy and I like different toppings and it's fairly easy to please us both with this one! The recipe below show my preference of toppings, but we usually make it with half spinach for me and half pepperoni for Jeremy. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

1 Pillsbury pizza dough (found in the refrigerated section with the cookie dough and biscuits, etc)
1 egg white
1 pack shredded 5 cheese Italian mix (or Mozzarella)
1 bag fresh spinach
1 can mushrooms
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp minced garlic
Italian seasoning
A sprinkle of parmesan cheese
1 can pizza sauce for dipping

What to do:
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Grease a cookie sheet. Spread the pizza dough so that it is stretched over the cookie sheet in the shape of a rectangle.
2. Put on tbsp olive oil into pan. Stir in minced garlic and saute for 1 minute. Then add mushrooms. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add spinach. Cover 1 minute to allow spinach to wilt.
3. Spread half of the egg white onto the pizza dough. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, then spread cheese over entire dough. (leave about half an inch-1 inch around the edge.)
4. Spoon the sauteed mixture over the cheese. Beginning at one of the smaller sides of the rectangle, roll the pizza dough up in a jelly roll fashion. Be careful, the toppings like to fall out!

5. Arrange on the baking sheet, then spread the other half of the egg white over the top of the roll. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese over top.
6. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

**If you prefer other toppings, follow the same recipe, just change out the toppings to meet your needs!


  1. I just put this in the oven- can NOT wait to eat this cheesy goodness:) I'm trying it with the bag of spinach, ground turkey (1/2 lb.) & about 2.5 oz. of turkey pepperoni. I'll let you know how it goes;-)

  2. Thank you. I was looking for an easy stromboli dish and this looks awesome!
