Broccoli Stromboli

In our house this is affectionately referred to as a pizza pocket.  This can be very easy to make if you purchase refrigerated pizza dough. Thanks to Trader Joe’s who has a whole wheat version.  Meat eaters can add pepperoni to the roll.  This packs well for lunches too.Image


  • 1 pound of pizza dough
  • 1 lb. broccoli, steamed
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • olive oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line baking sheet with foil.  Divide dough into 4 pieces.  On a floured surface roll each piece to 6 x 8 inch rectangle.

Place 1/4 broccoli on each piece of dough leaving a 1/2 inch border.  Season with minced garlic, salt and pepper.  Top with mozzarella and 1/8 cup pizza sauce.

Starting at the shorter end roll up each pizza pocket and place seam side down on foil lined baking sheet.  Cut 2 slits in the top of each pocket.  Brush with oil and bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes.  Serve with remaining pizza sauce for dipping.
