still not sure what to do with all that leftover turkey from thanksgiving? here’s a simple recipe that’s worth a try…

it’s a bit of a twist on my easypeasy pizza recipes — where the pizza toppings become the ooey-gooey, stromboli filling, and the fresh pizza dough becomes the oh-so-dough-y stromboli crust. yummers.

– preheat oven to 400F

prep the dough:
– sprinkle some whole-wheat flour on a clean surface before rolling out the fresh pizza dough (i bought some fresh from the bakery.)
– using a rolling pin, flatten out the dough into a thin, oblong pie
– sprinkle some more flour on the dough, flip over before applying the rolling pin again
– place the prepped dough on a pizza stone (at room temperature) or a lightly-greased, baking sheet

prep the filling:
– spread 2 tbsp plain, low-fat greek yogurt evenly on dough
– drizzle hot sauce evenly on dough
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– add arugula leaves as base for filling
– sprinkle pecorino romano (grated) over arugula
– then add roasted turkey (flaked) on bottom half of dough
– drizzle hot sauce evenly over turkey
– sprinkle frozen corn kernels over turkey (optional, if you’d like to add more veg to the filling)

– season w/ 1 tsp southwest spice blend  (combo of spices incl salt, ground cumin, ground mexican oregano, ground coriander, ancho chile pepper, black pepper, garlic)
– sprinkle pecorino romano (grated) evenly over turkey

prep the stromboli:
– fold over top half of dough over stuffed portion so that the sides line up
– shape the crust of the stromboli on the outer ends of the dough

bake the stromboli:
– bake the stromboli on a pizza stone at 400F for 20min, or until crust is golden brown
– remove from oven & allow to cool on rack before slicing

food styling:
– slice the stromboli in half, and enjoy the ooey-gooey cheesy stuffing!
