What is Stromboli?
Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various Italian cheeses and cold cuts or vegetables. The dough used is either Italian bread dough or pizza dough. Bread dough, cheese (typically mozzarella), meat or vegetables are the main ingredients.
Stromboli’s are usually thought of more with Pizza. You could say it’s a different take on a Calzone. While a Calzone is Stuffed inside of pizza dough, Stromboli’s ingredients are rolled in it. This Stromboli is a bit different. As you can see it’s not your classic pizza ingredients. In my opinion these contents give this meal more opportunity to be on the table at any time.
- Refrigerated Pizza Dough: Pillsbury Thin Crust is what I used
- Pizza Sauce: Choose the best one for your family
- Italian Salami: Always one of my favorites
- Pepperoni: Thinly sliced is best
- Mozzarella Cheese: Sliced cheese melts evenly
- Egg: Whisk together and spread over top the outside of the pizza dough.
- Italian Seasoning: Sprinkled on the outside for best
- Parsley: Freshly chopped for garnish.
How to Make the Best Stromboli:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll the dough out and stretch it out on a piece of parchment paper. Spread the pizza sauce leaving about 2 inches from the edge. Top with italian salami, then the cheese, and end with pepperoni.
- Roll up the dough up like a cinnamon roll and pinch the edges to seal and fold where the seam is. Lay the stromboli seam side down. Brush with the egg and cut small slats in the top. Top with 1/4 cup cheese, italian seasoning and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve with warm pizza sauce.
The Recipe Critic Pro Tip:
If your Stromboli burns before the inside is baked, your oven may run hot! Be sure to bake stromboli in the lower half of the oven for best results.
Variations when making Stromboli:
- Vegetables: Mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and black olives are great texture fillers.
- Meat: Pepperoni, bacon, Canadian bacon or sausage are fun variations of meat.
- Cheese: Mozzarella, fontina, gouda, asiago, provolone or gruyere are perfect for melting.
- Dough: Fresh or frozen dough will work great for this Stromboli recipe.
