Your rating: None Average: 4 (20 votes)

Traditional stromboli recipes are stuffed with tons of mozzarella cheese and Italian cured meats. In this healthy stromboli recipe we fill whole-wheat pizza dough with plenty of spinach and a judicious amount of salami: the results are still delicious. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce on the side for dipping.

Ingredients

  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced salami (about 10 slices)
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups chopped baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

Preparation

  1. Position a rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 425°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine tomato paste and garlic in a small bowl. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle approximately 14 by 10 inches. Spread the tomato paste mixture over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges. Place a layer of salami on the tomato paste; top with cheese and spinach. Starting at a long side, roll the dough into a cylinder. Pinch both ends shut to contain the filling. Using two spatulas, carefully transfer the stromboli to the prepared baking sheet, placing it seam-side down. Brush oil over the stromboli.
  3. Bake until the crust is beginning to brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing into 5 portions.
