Spending time outside... pizza stromboli

I love these days.  The first ones of summer, when it's not too hot, not too cold, and we actually want to be outside.

I'd rather be outside than in the kitchen on these days.  So of course, dinner is going to be easy and quick.

This one was easy, quick and a hit.  It is basically pizza after all.

I made the pizza dough in the morning and let it rise for most of the day.  That way I could spend the afternoon outside.  And I love these days.

1 batch pizza dough
1/2 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb ground beef, cooked
onion powder
any other ingredients you'd like to have.

Roll out the pizza dough.  Cut it into 8 pieces.

Combine the sauce and ground beef. (I had some left from the lasagna buns I made earlier)

In one half of each piece, spread the sauce mixture on the dough.

Add the toppings.

Fold over the empty half onto the half that you've topped with all the fixins.

Seal with a fork.

Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, flip over and bake for another 5 minutes.
