Italian Stromboli

Mi piace cucinare!! ( I love to cook), but you probably already guessed that by now. Have you ever thought that cooking Italian food required too many skills and too much time? Not Stromboli. I got this recipe from a friend at a Bible Study years ago. If you want to make an extremely easy Italian meal for dinner....try this recipe for a quick and easy Italian dinner. This requires almost no cooking skills. If you like pizza, you should love this!! If you try it, let me know what you think!

1 tube refrigerated pizza dough
2 Tbsp flour
24 slices pepperoni (the large sliced that the deli slices for you at the grocery store)
6 slices provolone (also from the deli, sliced for you)
6 slices cappicola (Italian hot ham, also sliced for you at the deli)
8 slices Genoa Salami
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
2 tsp Italian seasoning blend
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400. Break open the tube of pizza dough and remove it from container. Dust your hands lightly with flour. Coat work surface with a dusting of flour and place dough on work surface.. Stretch dough out, gently, spreading out the rectangle shape it has been formed into already. Cut the dough into four equal pieces by cutting the dough in half and then in half the other direction. Cover each piece of dough with 6 slices of pepperoni, 1 1/2 slices cheese, 1 1/2 slices cappicola ham, and 2 slices of Genoa Salami. Roll each piece at an angle from corner to corner, making a long roll that is thicker in the middle and thinner on each end.
In a bowl, mix together sesame seeds, Italian seasoning, Parmesan or Romano Cheese,  red pepper flakes and garlic powder.
Brush each roll lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle seed mixture onto the top of each roll. Gently push the seed mixture onto roll so it will stick. Bake until evenly golden, 12-14 minutes. Serve warm.
