You can bet this is a great meal to share. Of course with how good it is, I wouldn’t be surprised if its the first thing gone.

What is Stromboli?

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.

How do you make Ham and Swiss Stromboli?

Broken down into three easy steps, you’ll have this on your table in no time.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out your refrigerated pizza dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Spread the dijon mustard evenly across the dough.

2. Next. Add your sliced Ham and Cheese and top with Green Onions and Bacon. Roll the dough up and place in the center of the baking sheet with the seam on the bottom.

3. Last. Brush with Egg and sprinkle the top with Parmesan Cheese. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown on top.

What is in Traditional Stromboli?

The best thing about Stromboli’s, is that there are endless possibilities. You could make the Simplest combinations, or get more complicated with some more complex mixtures. A Traditional Stromboli is usually made up of a mixture of Italian Cheeses and Cold Cuts. Usually packed With Italian Meats and Vegetables.

Are Stromboli and Calzones the same thing?

Calzones are very similar to strombolis, but they are two different dishes. A Stromboli is made with square shaped pizza dough and then topped with toppings and rolled into a log and baked. A calzone uses round pizza dough that gets folded in half and baked.

        The ham and Swiss cheese Stromboli tasted great. Is there a dip to have with it?

    1. You will want to make sure that your dough is the same thickness. Then when baking making sure that it is baked for the full amount and even more if needed. You can cover the top so it does not burn or over cook. Hope that helps! XOXO

    Great recipe! I grew up in a home that didn’t do much cooking. I just got married and he’s been doing all the cooking and I felt bad so I started searching online for some recipes to make. This was the first one I tried and it turned out great!! I have a whole week of Recipe Critic meals planned out, here’s hoping it goes well! I like that your recipes don’t use millions of ingredients and are easy to understand. Thanks!
