Stromboli...and a winner!

DSC08208

I've been thinking of making stromboli for a week now. We learned to make it at the baker's conference I recently had the privilege to attend. Then we baked up a few for lunch at work this past week. Yesterday I finally got it together and made some in my own kitchen.

I used a bun dough recipe this time but in the kitchen at work we used a pizza dough. Either one works just dandy. When your dough is ready, roll it out into a square-ish shape and top like you would a pizza.

Then gently roll it up jelly roll style sealing it with an egg wash. Poke holes in the top of your roll to vent. Spray lightly with oil. Let it rest for a good half hour-forty-five minutes.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes. If it starts too get too dark too fast, turn the oven down to 375. The internal temperature should reach around 200 degrees. Place on a wire rack and allow stromboli to cool for about 15 minutes before slicing with a serrated knife.

My daughter helped me with the stuffing of this fantastic yumminess. We used tomato paste, basil, garlic, salami, mini pepperoni, mushrooms, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, salt and cracked black pepper. We sprinkled shredded parmesan and kosher salt over the outside.

This is a nice change from ordinary pizza. You can easily mix and match stuffing ingredients. I wouldn't use anything too wet or it may end up falling apart.

Have you ever made stromboli? What do you like to stuff inside?

I also wanted to announce my winner of the Strawberry Cookbook. Joanne from Eats Well with Others, you are lucky number 10...and you are a 10! tee hee. Be sure to check out Joanne's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes...They are downright dangerous!


Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! :)

What? And you didn't invite me over? ;)

I can't even remember how we used to have it made for us at school but those dear lunch ladies (who were making everything from scratch - thank you small, independent school!) made it AMAZING and it was every kid's favorite.

Congratulations Joanne!

This stromboli looks far better then any I have seen in any restaurant!

Boy, it's been ages since I've had stromboli -- a homemade version might be just what the doctor ordered! Good call.

Betty @ scrambled henfruit said...

My kids used to request stromboli whenever their friends were here, which was all the time. I haven't made it in ages, but seeing yours is making me want some now! :)

The stromboli is gorgeous - yay for you. I alternate between cheeses and cured meats and always have fun. The kids favorite is sausage, mozzarella, peppers and onions. And I would have too much fun having your stromboli in front of me right now!
