In this segment, Angie Horkan from the Wisconsin Beef Council shows how to make Italian Beef Sausage Stromboli.

Italian Beef Sausage Stromboli:


  • 1 recipe Italian-Style Beef Sausage
  • 2 cups pasta sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 can (13.8 ounces) of refrigerated whole-grain pizza dough
  • 2 cups packed arugula leaves
  • 1-1/3 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  2. Prepare Italian-Style Beef Sausage.
  3. Stir pasta sauce, mushrooms, and garlic into sausage mixture.
  4. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. stir in arugula and cheese.

    Italian-Style Beef Sausage:
  7. Combine 1 pound Ground Beef, 1 teaspoon fennel seed, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon coriander, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper in a large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
  8. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.
  9. Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Cook’s Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  10. Meanwhile, spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  11. Place pizza dough in pan; press dough into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle.
  12. Spoon sausage filling down the center of the rectangle, leaving a 2-1/2-inch border on the long sides and a 1/4-inch border on the short sides of the dough.
  13. Cut dough at 1-inch intervals along each long side just to the edge of the filling. Alternating sides, fold dough strips halfway over the filling at an angle, creating a braided appearance.
  14. Pinch the short sides of the dough together to seal and enclose the filling.
  15. Bake in 400°F oven for 20 to 23 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes; cut crosswise into 8 slices to serve.

Game One of the World Series is Friday, October 27th at 7:05 p.m. The Arizona Diamondbacks take on the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Field in Arlington.
