I love an easy, delicious recipe; who doesn’t? One of my absolute favorite foods is stromboli. Bread, good; cheese, good; ham, good. What isn’t there to love about an easy, delicious stromboli?! In this post, I am going to teach you my recipe!
After getting not one, BUT 2, bad stromboli’s at my favorite local pizza place (YUCK), I decided it was time to learn how to make my own.
I could have easily made my own crust (and sometimes I do with self-rising flour and Greek yogurt), but this time I used Mrs. Rhodes frozen bread, thawed of course. You must check this out!
- 1 thawed and raised loaf of Mrs. Rhodes frozen bread
- 4-5 tablespoon melted butter
- 2 tsp. each :garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil
- 1 jar of pizza sauce
- shredded mozzarella cheese
- mild pepper rings
- deli chipped ham
- any other topping you enjoy: salami, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, olives, etc.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- First, lightly flour your counter top or table and roll out the bread dough to be about 1/4″ thick. (A great tip is to lightly flour parchment paper because then it can be transferred directly to your baking sheet and into the oven).
- Lightly brush melted butter over the dough, avoiding the edges. (A thin layer of butter works best).
- Next, sprinkle the buttered dough with 1 teaspoon each: garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil.
- Add about 1/3 cup of pizza sauce to dough and spread, again staying 1/2″ off the edge of the stromboli so the edges can adhere to each other when you fold it. (You don’t want a ton of sauce or the stromboli will be too wet).
- After that, add your toppings to half of the stromboli (length-wise). I love shredded fresh mozzarella (about 1 cup), pepperoni, ham, and mild pepper rings in mine. But go crazy! Add whatever makes your belly sing.
- Then, fold the stromboli in half, length-wise, and press the edges together really well. Sometimes a fork can help the binding process. (You can also roll the stromboli into a long log, press the dough on the ends together and bake it seam-side down. If you choose this method, add your topping to the entire surface area like you are making a pizza, not just half; again, avoid the edges).
- Brush the top of the stromboli with melted butter and sprinkle 1 more teaspoon of garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil on top of stromboli for added flavor.
- Place the stromboli in the oven and bake at 375*F for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
- Finally, remove the stromboli from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
- Additionally, I always like to have the remaining pizza sauce warmed on the side for dipping.
- The last step is to obviously devour and enjoy!
