Stromboli

I made this for lunch last year on Christmas Eve. It was a huge hit with the kids and I've been making it ever since. It's super easy, yummy and a lot cheaper than ordering pizza on Friday Night.


Stromboli {adapted from Rachel Ray's version} I like to double this recipe.

1 tube refrigerated pizza dough (recommended: Pillsbury brand)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or corn meal
1/4 pound sliced pepperoni, about 24 slices
6 slices provolone, deli sliced
6 slices Italian hot ham
8 slices Genoa salami
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano or Romano

Note: For this version, I used mozzarella, ham & pepperoni because it's all I had on hand. That's what I love about this recipe. You can use whatever you want. It's great if you serve marinara sauce on the side to dip in !

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Break open the tube of dough and remove it from container. Dust your hands and lightly coat the dough with flour or cornmeal the roll out onto work surface. Stretch out dough, gently spreading out the rectangle shape it has been formed into already. Cover dough with: 6 slices pepperoni, 1 1/2 slices cheese, 1 1/2 slices hot ham and 2 slices Genoa salami leaving a 1 inch border. Starting at the long end, roll up the dough into a cylinder, pinching the edges to seal. Brush dough with extra-virgin olive oil then add grated parmesean cheese.
Bake until evenly golden, 12 to 14 minutes.

(Serve with marinara on the side for dipping.)

It's DIY day over at a soft place to land.

Thanks so much for economical recipe! I've had stromboli before, but it was always too doughy. This seems perfect.

I order this often when eating out, but I've never made it at home. Your receipe sounds easy. I think I'll make some. Thanks.

Sophie said...

OOOOOOh,..I so love your stromboli &é i adore Provolone cheese,..is this the picanté version or not?

Rettabug said...

I've made stromboli before but I like your recipe better than mine. The use of cornmeal seems like it would make it easier to roll out & stretch into position. That's always been a problem for me.

Thanks for sharing your recipe & BTW, great photos!! :)

Mary said...

What a great idea to use prepared pizza dough. And its so versatile too. Dipping slices in marinara sauce makes it perfect.

Happy Foodie Friday!

Your stromboli looks delicious! And you make it simple by using pizza dough. Can't wait to try it!

Jane F at Atticmag said...

This reminds me so much of my calzone -- I think dough-wrapped meat and cheese is the best. Of course, now you've got me wondering what the difference is between a stromboli and a calzone!

Can't wait to try it! Thanks!
