Italian Broccoli Rabe Sausage Roll

Sunday, July 10, 2016
This is a gourmet sausage roll in my eyes. It's filled with a delicious broccoli rabe and sausage filling to make this stuffed dough into a fabulous rolled sandwich baked to perfection!

This has all the taste of a great sandwich of these greens with homemade sausage, cheeses, garlic and extra virgin olive oil flavors.

Of course you can leave the meat out if your vegetarian, not a problem at all, still perfectly delicious!

This is a homemade pizza dough stuffed with an Italian green called broccoli rabe with added cooked Italian sausage then added to that filling shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese. It is rolled up and baked into this golden crust then sliced like a sandwich with the filling in the middle.

We love broccoli rabe.


It's tender part of the broccoli family.



Sauteed Broccoli Rabe is delicious by itself, this is just another great way to eat it!


Added minced garlic and olive oil to the pan and viola a banquet of fragrant Italian greens!

Pizza Dough



I love to make my own pizza dough, it's mom's recipe.


It always comes out light, delicious and perfect for all pizza and stuffed pizza dough.


We also love to make garlic knots with the dough.

Mom Made The Best




Mom always made homemade sausage, homemade pizza dough and the broccoli rabe was sauteed perfectly.


I will always look back and think of her when I make this.


This Broccoli Rabe Sausage Roll is one of my all time favorite pizza rolls.

Whether you make you own dough or buy the pizza dough, this is a very easy to follow recipe.



One the dough is rolled out, add the filling, roll it up, let it rest with seam side down and bake it!

Make A Whole Meal Out Of This Pizza Roll



Add a nice antipasto salad, make sure you have a good Traditional Sunday tomato sauce on the side for dipping the sliced pizza roll into and viola, you have the perfect dinner meal.


Great for an afternoon lunch or brunch with a good Chianti.

The Filling



Well if your family doesn't like sausage or broccoli rabe, it's ok.


You can stuff you pizza dough however you like, this just happened to be my favorite one.


Meatballs crushed, pepperoni or any other kinds of meat you like with shredded cheese will be the experiment recipe for you.


All stuffed pizza rolls are wonderful, I love this stromboli recipe also!


You can even make it all vegetarian, with spinach and ricotta cheese with shredded mozzarella like a calzone style.


The possibilities are endless!

Broccoli Rabe



Here in Florida, we sell broccoli rabe year round.


Hopefully you can find this tender Italian style broccoli.

Preparing the Broccoli Rabe



Mom boiled it to get the dirt left behind out first, then sauteed.


She didn't purposely make it just for this pizza roll, Broccoli rabe is great in sandwiches on Italian crusty bread too.


Don't worry if you didn't use it all up in the roll, you can also put on pasta with cooked sausage and tomato sauce, another delicious meal!

Cheesy Stuffed Pizza Dough Rolls



If you decide to make this for your family and never had it, I would strongly suggest you make the broccoli rabe first, taste it and see if you like this delicious garlicky green.


They are my all time favorite.


You can also make a small open top regular pizza with broccoli rabe on top but I promise you, if you love greens and sausage, this is a winner meal!

  1. This looks absolutely wonderful my friend! This looks more like a Stromboli than Calzone but then again, I don't know all of the Italian terminology for recipes.

    Gorgeous job once again!

    I just downloaded SKYPE on my computer this morning. I still need a microphone and camera. You would be a great one to talk real time to!

    Keep up the great work!

  18. Hey Claudia, I'm finally getting back after that traveling wedding weekend! I'm making stromboli tomorrow night. I have some greens and sausage in the freezer, will be trying this out, it sounds great.

  19. The only real difference between a calzone and a stromboli is that one is folded over into a big pocket, and the other is rolled, so it really doesn't matter what you choose to call it- especially when it's filled with a great flavor combination like Broccoli Rabe and Sausage.
