Veggie Stromboli

This is compromise food. It's dough filled with cheesy goodness for the boyfriend, but jam packed with veggies for me. We needed an afternoon snack and half of this was the perfect answer. A whole one can definitely serve as a meal for two people.

Veggie Stromboli
Serves 2

1 store-bought pizza dough
4 oz cubed black forest ham
1 cup cheese (your favorite melting cheese)
2 cups roasted veggies (I use Trader Joe's w/ balsamic sauce)

Preheat pizza stone in a 375* oven
If using frozen roasted vegetables like Trader Joe's, cook them according to package instructions, adding the cubed ham at the end to warm through. Roll out the pizza dough to a rectangle. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese on one half of the rectangle, leaving a 1" border from the edge. Pile the roasted vegetables on top of the cheese and cover with the rest of the cheese. Fold the other half of the pizza dough over the filling and press the seams down with a fork to seal. Cut a few vents in the top to allow steam to escape and bake on the pizza stone for 35 - 40 minutes. Enjoy!

looks scrumptious! Your boyfriend must worship the ground you walk on-serving up all the delicious gems that you do.

This looks great for the kids. I love black forest ham-especially Boar's Head Brand.

Rachel - One would hope! He definitely gets very sad when he sees something on the blog that he didn't get to try.

Candy - It's great for kids and boyfriends who may not always want to eat their Veggies!

Cecil - It's all about the cheese on this one!

Elra - It is very simple, which is why I love it. There's nothing better than delicious simple food.
