Oh me, oh my!  I am already drooling on my keyboard as I type this recipe!  I am such an Italian girl!  I could eat pasta, pizza, and bread every day of the week.  Stromboli was always a family favorite growing up, and I recently discovered  the recipe!  I begged my Mom to send me the recipe, and I finally made it for my own family this week.  It was a BIG hit!  
If you love pizza, you will love stromboli!  Essentially, stromboli is an inside-out pizza!  You pile all of the gooey cheese, tempting toppings, and perfects spices and bake it inside a loaf of bread.  It is surprisingly easy to make!  Come along and see!
1 loaf Rhodes frozen bread dough
Mozzarella cheese (8-12 ounces)
Ham, thinly sliced (8 ounces)
Pepperoni, thinly sliced (8 ounces)
Green pepper, chopped
Onion, chopped
Basil (to your liking)
Oregano (to your liking)
1 beaten egg
Allow bread to thaw and rise.  Roll dough out to about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick in an oblong shape.  It should be about 7-8 inches wide and 15-18 long.  It should look something like this:
Brush dough with beaten egg.  Place Mozzarella cheese down the center of the dough.  Follow with ham and pepperoni or your choice of meats! I think stromboli tastes best with salty meats like salami.  I have also used Canadian bacon.  Cover meat with green peppers and onion or your choice of vegetables.  (We often use olives and mushrooms, too.)  Sprinkle with basil and oregano.  Top all with more cheese.   Be careful to leave plenty of room around the edges to eliminate mess in the nest step!
Bring up the long sides of bread and pinch together.  Pinch ends together.
Brush with egg.  Turn seam side down on a greased cookie sheet and brush top with beaten egg.
Bake at 400 for 5 minutes.  Then turn to 350 and bake 15-18 minutes more.  Cool and slice.
This is yummy served with green salad and fruit!  I am ready to make another batch right now!  I promise you--you won't be disappointed with this recipe!  Enjoy, my friends!!

    Oh, you hit me in my tummy!! I must have been Italian in another life because I just can't get enough of that kind of food. I make something very similar to this, just making smaller rolls out of the dough filled with pepperoni and cheese. I may have to try the larger stromboli version!! Yum!!!!

  2. Yummy. I love the fact that you can customize this for picky eaters! If you like italian food you should see if you have a Biaggi's by you. The baguette dipped in their herb infused olive oil with fresh ground pepper is to die for:)

  3. Yum! I also love Italian food. We will definitely be making this… maybe even this weekend. 🙂 Thanks!
