Carmine Testa of Carmine’s Pizza Factory in Jersey City is showing you how to make a 3-in-1 pizza like a pro!  Check out the video to see how it’s done, and get the recipe below.

1 to 2 pizza doughs, depending on the size of the pan
Olive oil, for drizzling
4 to 5 slices provolone
5 to 6 slices Gouda cheese
4 to 5 slices pepperoni
1 link Italian sausage, removed from casing, browned and crumbled
1/2 pound mozzarella, shredded
Grated Romano
A couple handfuls baby spinach
Sliced red onion
Cherry tomatoes, halved
Ranch dressing
1 cup store-bought or homemade tomato sauce
Fresh basil. torn

Grease a pan with olive oil. Stretch out Pizza Dough in pan. Make sure you fully cover the pan. If it’s a large pan, use 2 pizza doughs.

For the stromboli section, layer lower third of the dough with provolone, Gouda, pepperoni, sausage, mozzarella, some Romano and a sprinkle of oregano. Roll/fold pizza edge of dough over to cover all the meats and cheeses. Make sure to close it well to keep it held together.

Cook pizza at 450°F only halfway, until the crust starts to brown. Take out of the oven and sprinkle more mozzarella cheese to the flat side.

Return pizza to the oven and finish cooking until golden brown and cheese is completely melted.

Add veggies and ranch dressing to a third of the cheese-topped dough next to the Stromboli section.

Top remaining cheese-topped dough with tomato sauce, basil, some Romano and oregano.
