    Looks delicious…can you substitute the green bell pepper (my husband won’t eat them)? He doesn’t mind red bell pepper – would that work? Thanks for the recipe!

      Red bell pepper would work just as well in this recipe. 🙂

    Began making my own pizza crust.. super easy.. and the cost was far less than a dollar. A cup of flour costs 15 cents… Hudson Cream from Kansas.. I tossed around the risen dough in a bit of flour.. then pressed onto a cold pizza stone..the toppings determine the total cost of a single pizza… Your stromboli would be wonderful for a working mother (father?) .

    I made this Sunday night. The whole family loved it. I used refrigerated pizza dough. Worked great with it. I think next time I will try it with homemade dough. Thanks for the recipe!

    Great recipe. Will certainly try it out. Got one question though – can I use puff pastry instead of pizza dough?

      Puff pastry will not work the same as the pizza dough. It is generally harder to work with.

    Would this freeze well before the baking process? Filling my freezer before baby #5 arrives this summer.
