Yummy pizza ingredients all wrapped in pre-made pizza or crescent dough. You decide what ‘toppings’ to add; veggies, sausage, pepperoni whatever you like! If you don’t like extra spice, feel free to leave out the red pepper for a milder sauce.


Spicy Pizza Sauce
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 cup dry white wine, or vegetable broth
4 tablespoons Tuttorosso® Tomato Paste
1 (28 ounce) can Tuttorosso® Peeled Plum Italian Style Tomatoes, reserve juice and chop tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Pizza Stromboli
1 refrigerator pizza crust, or crescent roll sheet
1 (8 ounce) package shredded pizza cheese
1 cup Spicy Pizza Sauce, scroll up for recipe
1 cup assorted fresh vegetables, green pepper, onion, mushrooms and spinach leaves, chopped


Spicy Pizza Sauce
  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until it is soft, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and wine; cook for an additional minute.
  • Stir in tomato paste, peeled plum tomatoes, reserved juice, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the vinegar; cool.
  • Freeze leftover pizza sauce for a future Pizza Stromboli or regular pizza.
Pizza Stromboli
  • Preheat oven to 375o F.
  • Remove crescent roll sheet from tube and place on sheet of parchment paper. Roll dough into a 10” X 14” rectangle. Place on baking sheet.
  • Spread ½ of cheese down the center third of the dough. Top with 1 cup Spicy Pizza Sauce and 1 cup of chopped vegetables. Top with remaining cheese.
  • Cut 1” crosswise strips down the sides of the rectangle. Starting from one end, bring one of the dough strips across the filling diagonally. Repeat on the other side, crisscrossing the dough strips. Continue down the rest of the braid, alternating strips to form the loaf. Brush with egg wash (one egg beaten with a pinch of salt). Sprinkle with dehydrated onions or poppy seed.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Option: Pepperoni or crumbled cooked sausage could be added along with the vegetables.
