Leftover Lightning! Hot Pockets!

Sarah was kind enough to leave behind some Pizza Dough for us to experiment with after our “Build Your Own Pizza Night”, describing it as the “weird batch”. Dre & I decided to give its “weirdness” a whirl with some Sunday night stromboli & calzone.

I fulfilled my new addiction to the sweetness of Roasted Tomatoes by popping a batch in the oven while I began filling the dough. I opted for leftover Roasted Yellow Peppers & Zucchini from our “Build Your Own Pizza Night” with Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage, Mozzarella, Asiago, Tomato Sauce, & Fresh Basil. Per my lactose intolerant boyfriend’s nonsensical request, I filled his with “just cheese” including Mozzarella, Asiago, & Ricotta with a swipe of Tomato Sauce, a layer of Roasted Tomatoes, chopped Fresh Basil, & extra Minced Garlic. They weren’t too pretty going into oven once folded and likewise once they were baked, but they were delicious! The “weird” dough created a flaky crust a la a homemade Hot Pocket, versus a traditional stromboli/calzone crust. Yum!

Quickie: Lazaro’s Veggie Stromboli

Took a quick break from my speed blogging to order some delivery from Lazaro’s Pizza with Lex. We’ve popped in for slices & ordered delivery from the pizza shop on 18th & South since we moved to Grad Hospital/Point Breeze 3 years ago. Their in a close 2nd to my favorite Philly pizza (next to Lorenzo’s) and def my favorite cheesesteak. Tonight, we enjoyed their medium Vegetable Stromboli with a shared dozen of Hot Wings & our usual 2-liter of Sprite.
