Pepper, Pesto and Spinach Stromboli

Recipe modified by Strive for Wellness®

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 5


1 tablespoon olive oil
2 large bell peppers, chopped
½ large onion, sliced
1 package whole-wheat pizza dough
Whole-wheat flour for rolling
¼ cup pesto
3 cups chopped baby spinach
⅓ cup chopped banana peppers
1½ cups cheese of your choice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add bell peppers and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle approximately 14 by 10 inches. Spread pesto over the dough, leaving a ½-inch border. Top with the bell pepper mixture, spinach, banana peppers and cheese. Starting at a long side, tightly roll the dough into a cylinder. Pinch and tuck both ends closed to contain the filling. Using two spatulas, carefully transfer the stromboli seam-side down to the prepared baking sheet. Brush with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Bake until the crust is beginning to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then slice.
