Just a stromboli (rolled up pizza) made with biscuit dough. Great if you are on the go. Takes less room in the oven, so you can make more of them at a time. One thing I like about this you do not have to wait for yeast to rise. Throw it together and in minutes you will be having a meal.
Step 1: What's Needed.
2 cups flour
1/3 cup oil (high heat)
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt. (garlic salt is nicer)
2 heaping table spoons of red spaghetti sauce
1/2 to 3/4 cup of cheese such as Mozzarella
(I usually get some pepperoni rounds or poached chicken to add as an additional toppings, but you can use a couple of slices of sandwich meat in a pinch)
Stove capable of supporting 425 degrees F.
Medium to large cookie sheet pan.
Large sturdy wooden spoon
Rolling pin or equivalent
Large bowl to combine measure
1 tsp measuring spoon
1 cup measuring cup
1 tbl measuring spoon
Cooking mitt to protect your hand when removing the cookie pan from the oven.
Step 2: Mixing It Up.
Preheat over to 425 degrees F.
In the large mixing bowl add the dry ingredients (salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour)
stir around to evenly distribute them.
Take the cup and fill it one third full of oil. Does not have to be perfect but close is important. Fill the rest of the cup with buttermilk. Pour that into the flour mixture. Stir it all until it becomes a dough and is in a ball. Do not over mix.
Take the ball and spread it out evenly as much as you can in the cookie pan, You can either use your hands like I do or use the rolling pin. The rolled out dough should be in a square or rectangle shape. Between the oil and the buttermilk, you should not have to grease the pan. Though it would not hurt to do it is the first time you do this recipe.
Take the spaghetti sauce and spread it evenly over the dough, but leave.about an inch around the edge uncovered so you can seal the ends when you roll it up. Then do the same with the cheese. Does not have to be perfect. At this point you could and some pre-cooked meats such as pepperoni or sandwich meat. In this case we will use Tuna fish. A plain cheese pizza does ok for me too.
Step 3: Roll It Up.
What we want to do is sort of make it like a cinnamon roll. From one end fold over about an inch. Then start rolling up the pizza as if you were rolling up a carpet. Does not have to be perfect but you want to be able to seal it up so no sauce or other topping will fall out. Since we are rolling this up, it will help keep the tuna fish from burning.
Step 4: Cooking Time.
By this time the oven should be ready. Notice the time. Put the cookie pan in the oven. Keep an eye on the biscuit pizza so it does not burn. Should not take more than 15 - 20 minutes at most. The strombolli will plump up and turn brown. After 15 -20 so minutes put on the cooking mitt and remove the cookie pan.
Yes, put the cookie pan on top of the stove or somewhere safe from the hot bottom of the cookie pan so the dough can cool and rest a bit. Then you can slice it up and serve it. Be sure to have some pasta sauce for dipping. Enjoy
