Traditional Italian Stromboli

Sliced Stromboli with Sauce

Sliced Stromboli with Sauce

A Stromboli is a delicious Italian stuffed bread similar to a calzone but in a loaf shape.  Basically being an inside out pizza with the sauce on the outside means the sky is the limit for customization here.  I have gone ahead and made a more traditional Stromboli with Italian meats and cheese but pretty much anything you can imagine can be stuffed into one of these.

As I post recipes you will soon discover I am not much for exact measurements.  I feel they limit creativity and keep the cook from tasting as you go which is the only way to tell if something is seasoned enough for your liking.  I will try to guesstimate my measurements as best I can if I feel they are needed.

For this Stromboli I started out by making Alton Brown’s pizza dough (as shown in the beginning of this recipe) but any pizza or Italian bread recipe can be used or, to make it ever simpler, store bought dough would work just fine.

Ingredients

Pizza Dough (Home Made or Store Bought)

Ham

Salami

Pepperoni

Mozzarella Cheese (sliced)

Red Onion (Sliced)

Bell Pepper (Sliced)

Sliced Black Olives

Egg mixed with a little water (for egg wash)

Sesame Seeds

Method

Roll out dough until it is a thin, even thickness (it will make two).  Then begin to layer the meats, veggies, and cheese onto the dough.  Roll the dough up into a loaf shape.  Place loaves onto a baking sheet or peel then brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Cut three slits on top of loaves and place into a 450 degree oven until golden brown about 20 minutes.
