Easy "anything" stromboli

Here's my recent favorite "I don't have anything to make for dinner" rescue...
I just try to keep a couple of the basic ingredients on hand, and then substitite leftovers/whatever I have in my fridge for filling.

You need a thin crust pizza dough--the kind in the roll--refrigerated.

Roll out on cookie sheet.

Down the middle of the dough layer:
-spaghetti or pizza sauce (or tomato sauce, or whatever kind of sauce you have/like)
-vegetables (spinach, broccoli, shredded carrots, peppers, onions, olives, squash, tomatoes, etc.)
-protein (lunchmeat, shredded/chopped *(already cooked) chicken, ricotta or cottage cheese, etc.)
-once you have all your filling in place, use some kitchen shears to cut from the outer edge of the dough almost up to the filling--in lines perpendicular to the filling row. Cut about 10 strips on each side.
-fold the strips up over the filling, matching them with a strip from the other side--pinch closed.
-brush crust with milk
-sprinkle with: garlic salt, dill, and a bit of parmesan cheese.

Bake about 15 minutes on 350 or until top starts browning.

DELISH, easy, and makes good use of random leftovers you have in your fridge!!

I've even made this for company with great results!! Yummy with a nice salad....
