fitting in with the neighbors making stuffed bread and WIAW

It is Wednesday and feels like it should be Friday. Monday was the worst ever. Seriously.

Tuesday wasn't so hot either. Hopefully today will be better.

Sunday we ended up having a later breakfast that included eggs, bacon, a leftover jalapeno cheddar cheese corn muffin, and strawberries. I guess it was more of a brunch given the amount of food and timing.

Lunch was stuffed Italian bread. Have you ever heard of such a thing?  I had no clue until moving to Connecticut. There are tons of people here with Italian heritage around us.  Thus there are also tons of Italian restaurants and delis. A staple at all of these food stores is stuffed Italian bread. Think a pizza rolled up with no sauce. Filling options are endless. Still not sure what the difference is between a Stromboli and stuffed bread.

Stuffed Bread with Spinach, Mozzarella and Pepperoni

by Emily Morris
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Keywords: pizza
Ingredients (serves 6)
  • 1 ball of store bought pizza dough
  • 1 8oz bag of shredded mozzarella
  • 1 bag sliced pepperoni
  • 1 box frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium saute pan, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add onion and cook until soft. Top with chopped spinach and heat through. Remove from heat.

Roll out pizza dough to a 9X13 rectangle.

Spoon spinach mixture on top of dough, leaving a centimeter of space to the edge of dough. Layer pepperoni slightly overlapping on top of spinach mixture. Cover with mozzarella cheese.

Gently roll dough into a cylinder and tuck edges in on ends and press closed.

Place pizza dough roll on a cookie sheet with seam side down.

Bake until cooked through and dough begins to brown, about 25 minutes. Allow time to cool slightly before slicing.

Serve with marinara sauce.

This was fun to snack on around lunch time. I also loved the swirl of colors. I was being super wife and added pepperoni. No my favorite but Mr. J loves it.

Dinner I was on my own and had take out. A house salad and half a chicken parmesan sandwich.  Remember what I said about all of the Italian restaurants. Well, we live about 100 feet from one.  Oh so convenient when you want take out.

Is there a specific type of restaurant that you have more of around you?  Do you enjoy that type of food?
