Easy Stromboli

I love pizza. I mean I really love pizza. This is my way of making pizza-like food and pretending it’s not pizza.

This is what you’ll need:
1 lb Italian sausage
1 jar marinera sauce
1 tube Pillsbury refrigerated French loaf
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Pepperoni slices
1 can of mushrooms
1 onion caramelized with butter, balsamic vinegar and sugar
1 tablespoon butter

This is what you do:
Brown sausage and caramelize onion.
Spread the french loaf on a greased cookie sheet or 14x12 pan (it should stretch to cover the sheet).
Across the middle, layer the sausage, some cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, and onions, about 1/4 of the sauce and almost all of the cheese. Then roll edges of dough and seal all sides. Cut three slits on top. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
Slice and serve with marinera sauce and parmesan cheese.
