Welcome to this week’s Publix Super Meals. Each week I am going to share a recipe to help you take the Publix Super Deals and turn them into Publix Super Meals!

This week we have a great in ad deal where you get FREE Publix Cheese when you buy 3 participating items. This deal lends itself perfectly to a pizza night BUT…I wanted to change it up a bit. So, I thought I share one of my guys’ favorite meals – Stromboli!

Stromboli is such a nice change of pace from your standard pizza night. I actually think it’s even easier to throw together since you  don’t have to spend as much time stretching out your dough into a nice circle. With Stromboli, you just stretch the dough, throw in your favorite topping and then roll it up and bake. Slice and serve with marinara or pizza sauce and you have a meal to please the whole family.

There is a great deal on frozen meatballs in the ad this week – but you guys know I like to cook. I decided to whip up a big batch of meatballs so that I could use them for my Stromboli AND have enough ready for sweet and sour meatballs for next week.

This week I am going to give you a couple of options for your meal. If you are in a hurry, I’ll show you how to put together a Stromboli with easy store bought ingredients. If you have a few extra minutes, I’ll tell you how to whip up the meatballs and pizza dough to create a fantastic dish that you can customize based on your family’s preferences.

Publix Shredded Cheese 6 to 8 oz  – FREE wyb 3 Ragu, Pillsbury, or Pepsi Products
Pillsbury Pizza Crust, 11 to 13.8 oz, $2.75
(2) Ragu Pizza Sauce, 14 oz, $1.89
Armour Meatballs, Original, Italian or Turkey, 14 oz, BOGO $4.99 ($2.50)

That means you can put this one together for as little as $9.03. That’s only $2.26 per person! You can customize this based on your family’s favorites. You should also have plenty of leftovers to put together another meal…maybe a meatball sub or throw the extra meatballs in your spaghetti.

Once again, I made this entire meal from items in my pantry and fridge. Don’t be intimidated by the recipes – both the pizza dough and the meatballs are super easy. I promise you guys can make them both!
