Heat oven to 375°F.

Using sharp knife, remove and discard stems from mushrooms. Using a spoon, gently remove and discard gills from inside of mushroom.

Place mushrooms, cut side up, on rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper. Bake 10 minutes. Carefully remove mushrooms from the baking sheet; pour out and discard any liquid that has accumulated on the pan, or in the mushroom. Place mushrooms back on baking sheet.

Pat artichokes with paper towel to remove excess liquid; roughly chop. In bowl, toss artichokes with 2 ounces (3 tablespoons) Pecorino Romano cheese. Divide artichoke mixture evenly amongst mushrooms (about ⅓ cup per mushroom), spreading to fill.

Divide pizza sauce evenly amongst mushrooms (about ¼ cup per pizza), spreading to cover artichokes.

Divide mozzarella cheese amongst mushrooms (1 1/2 ounces per mushroom). Sprinkle each with a pinch of dried oregano and black pepper.

Bake 18 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the mushroom is tender. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. Tear basil leaves and place on pizzas.

pinch red pepper flakes

3 ounces pitted kalamata olives, halved

1 jar (25 ounces) The Original Jersey Italian Gravy

Heat oven to 425°F. In large deep skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat, add half the spinach. Toss constantly for 30 seconds-1 minute, until starting to wilt. Add remaining spinach and cook 2-3 minutes, or until completely wilted, tossing occasionally. Transfer to colander and press to release as much liquid as possible. Carefully wipe pan dry.

In same skillet over medium heat, warm olive oil. Add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes, or until garlic just starts to turn golden. Stir in spinach, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and goat cheese. Cook just until combined and goat cheese is melted throughout. Set aside to cool slightly while preparing the dough.

On parchment lined rimmed baking sheet, unroll dough and press into a rectangle, approximately 16 inches long and 12 inches high. Spread sauce over bottom half of long side of dough, leaving a ¾-inch border. Arrange spinach mixture over sauce to mostly cover. Top with smoked mozzarella cheese slices. Using pastry brush, cover entire border of dough with the beaten egg.

Using parchment paper, fold the top half of the dough over the bottom half. Dip a fork into the beaten egg and use it to seal the entire border of the stromboli. Using pastry brush, brush entire surface of stromboli with egg mixture. Using sharp knife, cut three slits on the top to allow air to escape while baking.

Bake 15-18 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling. Let sit 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with additional sauce, warmed if desired, for dipping.
