Spread pizza dough out on baking sheet to be approximately
10x16. Spread pizza sauce over 2/3's of the dough lengthwise,
leaving a 3x16 rectangle of plain dough along one of the edges.
Top sauce with half the grated cheese, salami and ham. Top with
remaining cheese. Brush the plain strip of dough with the egg.
Fold in the sides about an inch and brush them with egg. Roll up
like a jelly roll lengthwise starting along the long edge of dough
topped with all the fillings and ending with the plain strip of
dough on the bottom of the roll. Brush the entire stromboli with
egg and gently cut slats in the top of the dough every 1-2
inches. Sprinkle parsley and cheese over top and bake 8-10
minutes or until bubbly and golden. Remove from oven, cool 5
minutes and slice into pieces. Serve with more pizza sauce.
