The Stromboli is like a baked stuffed sandwich. It is similar to a rolled pizza or calzone but, normally there is no sauce or you can add a small amount of sauce. I have made mine with a layer or homemade pesto, cheese and various salamis.
It's a great way to feed a crowd, perfect food for watching my favourite Euro Soccer Game!
You will need:
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 2 tsp dry yeast
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3-4 cups flour
- 1 tsp salt (more for the top)
- grated mozzarella or mozzarella and provolone
- pesto (homemade or store bought)
- Italian seasoning
- salamis of your choice - thin sliced
Step 2: once dough is completed add to an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap for at least 2 hours. If you want to leave longer put in fridge.
Step 3: heat oven to 375 degrees F and divide dough in two. With your fingers press out a thin square. Add pesto or a bit of tomato sauce or nothing. Add a layer of cheese.
Step 4: add your toppings (it really can be whatever you like!)
Step 5: roll up and top with Italian Seasonings, some salt and a bit of grated cheese.
Step 6: bake 20 minutes, then turn sheet and bake another 20- 25 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
You can serve with a bowl of marinara sauce or just eat it as it is!
