Two Meat and Three Cheese Stromboli

This was one of the recipes that inspired my friends to ask me to send them weekly recipes. They all made it for their husbands. One of the husbands said, "That is one of the best meals you have ever made." Another husband said, "where did you get this recipe?!" She replied, "From my on-call cook!" That's right! :) This recipe is so versatile. You can do pepperoni, olives, and mozzarella. You can do ham and swiss. You can do turkey and provolone. One of the girls even tried Candadian bacon and pineapple! They are basically pizza toppings all wrapped up in dough, so you can do whatever you like on your pizza.
Three Meat and Two Cheese Stromboli:
originally from Taste of Home, but I've made it so much, I tweak it to my own liking.

1 loaf Rhodes dough- thawed
2 T dijon mustard
1/2 c salami
1/2 c pepperoni
4 slices Havarti cheese
1 c mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Roll the dough out into a rectangle. I think mine turned out to be about 15x10. Spread the dijon mustard over the dough, leaving one inch around the edges. Lay the slices of cheese down the center.
Place the pepperoni and salami into a food processor. Pulse it a few times.
You will end up with this. I guess technically you don't have to chop it up. You can leave it as is and layer it that way if you'd like.
Sprinkle the meat mixture onto the dough- leaving 1-2 inches from the edge. Sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese and the Parmesan cheese.
Roll it up like you would roll up for cinnamon rolls.
Whisk the egg and brush it on the roll.
Put three slits in the top. Don't get all crazy and stab the poor dough. You just want 1/4 inch slits in the top for decorative purposes. If you're feeling sentimental, you can even use a knife to write "I love you" or something all sappy like that on the bread. It would be a cute surprise for any family member. Bake it for 25-30 minutes.
Take it out and slice it.
This is great alongside soup or salad. Get creative with the fillings. You can even have your kids help sprinkle the filling in or roll it up. I know my little girl loves to help with stuff like that. Now, if "make Stromboli" is on your bucket list, you can now cross that off the list. :)
