PHILLY BEEF-STUFFED SANDWICH
Adapted by BumbleBeeBoogie
1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
3/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, peeled and pressed
1 tablespoon fresh snipped oregano leaves, or 1/2 teaspoon dried, divided
2 packages (10 oz. each) refrigerated pizza crust
8 ounces thinly sliced Deli roast beef
8 ounces thinly sliced American cheese
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon water
In 10" Frying Pan, heat the oil over medium heat until hot. Add the bell pepper, onion into the hot oil and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and the oregano leaves. Cook and stir for another 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove the pan from the heat.
Unroll 1 pizza crust onto lightly floured surface. Lightly flour the pizza dough and roll out the crust to 12" x 9" rectangle. Cover with half of the beef, cheese and vegetable mixture to within 1/2" of edges of dough. Starting at longest side of the rectangle, roll up the dough, jelly-roll style; press the seam together to seal. Repeat with the remaining crust and filling ingredients.
Preheat the at oven to 400 F
Place rolls, seam sides down, on baking stone or a non-stick baking sheet. Pinch the ends of the rolls together to form 1 large ring and seal.
In small bowl, beat the the egg white and water with a fork until just foamy; brush the mixture on the dough; immediately sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of oregano.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
