This is what happens when the family wants burgers for dinner but you don't have hamburger buns on hand. You all know that moment when you begin to think of ways to improvise just to get a meal on the table and satisfy your hungry eaters. Since my kids enjoy making their own pizzas, I usually have prepared pizza dough of some kind on hand. After serving it once, this bacon cheeseburger stromboli is requested as often as traditional burgers on a bun. It's a fun bread to make, and the kiddos can get in on dinner prep, too.
