Buffalo Chicken Stromboli

Buffalo Chicken Stromboli

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon EVOO – Extra Virgin
Olive Oil
3 to 4 stalks of celery, chopped
1 large or 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
2 cups chopped cooked chicken, such as rotisserie, leftovers from the night before or cooked chicken breasts
1/2 cup hot sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot, for extra spicy or1/4 cup tomato sauce or juice mixed with 2 tablespoons hot sauce, for mild
1 pizza dough, defrosted
1 cup Monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
3 scallions, sliced
1 egg
A sprinkle of sesame seeds or poppy seeds

Preheat oven to 400˚F. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter with the EVOO and cook the celery and carrots until tender, about 3-4  minutes. Add the chicken and hot sauce to the pan  and toss everything  together with some salt and ground black  pepper. Set aside and let cool.

When the filling is cool, roll out the pizza dough into a  rectangle on a floured surface. Spread the cooled filling evenly out onto  the entire dough, making sure not to get too close the any of the edges. Top
with cheeses and scallions. Roll the stromboli, starting at one of the  long sides, tucking in both ends firmly. Press the seam with your fingers to  seal. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with a splash of water then lightly brush it over the stromboli, covering the entire surface. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds, transfer to a baking sheet and bake in the oven until golden brown, about 40 minutes (I would start checking it at about 25, though.  Mine was browned and ready to come out then!).
