Stromboli


I know lots of people are gearing up for the Super Bowl this weekend. Good times, yummy snacks, and funny commercials. If you're looking for another recipe to throw amongst your spread, look no further... this Stromboli is guaranteed to please a crowd!

When I saw a guest post at Liv Life for Football Party Stromboli, I knew I had to make it for Matt. To say my husband likes football (or any other sport for that matter) would be an understatement. My hubby LOVES his football, and he loves when I make him good stuff to munch on while he's watching a game. My gut told me that he would love this recipe, and sure enough, he did. And honestly... so did I. :)
Kim's post called for frozen dough, which is definitely an option if you're looking for a little less preparation. I just happened to stumble across another Stromboli recipe that included homemade dough, so I figured I would give it a shot. The dough recipe makes two loaves, so if you're not planning for that many people you can freeze half for a later date (that's what I did, so the below filling recipe is for one).

Ingredients
Yields 2 loaves
1 (.25 oz) package active dry yeast
1 1/3 cups warm water (110° to 115°) 
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt 
4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour

Filling:
The quantities below are for 1 Stromboli. Double the amount if you want to make both loaves.
1/4 lb thinly sliced ham
1/4 lb reduced fat pepperoni
Dried basil
Dried oregano
4 slices provolone cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt and 2 cups flour; fitted with the paddle attachment, beat until smooth. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. Switching to the dough hook attachment, knead dough on low speed until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll one portion into a 15 x 12-inch rectangle. (I froze the second portion for a later date.) Arrange ham slices lengthwise down half of rectangle. Place pepperoni on top. Sprinkle with a little bit of basil and oregano. Arrange provolone slices over the top and then add the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with a little more basil and oregano. Fold plain half of dough over filling and seal ends well. Brush with oil; sprinkle with oregano.

Bake on a baking sheet at 400°F for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; cut into 1-inch slices.

Yum! I haven't had stromboli in so long and your homemade version looks fantastic! This is a definite Super Bowl food winner :)

Nicely done, Lindsey! I love that you made the bread dough. My husband has asked me to make this on occasion, but I didn't have the dough on hand so it will be nice to just whip out this recipe. I'm so glad you tired the stromboli and posted about it too. I'm going to forward your post to Becky, she will be thrilled!

I love stromboli! I was thinking pizza for Sunday but now you've got me thinking stromboli, especially with your gooey cheese in those pics.

Oh, my gosh, does that look delicious!!! Perfect Super Bowl food....mmmmmmmm.

The Mom Chef on February 3, 2011 at 8:40 AM said...

Ok, so the cheese oozing out of there made me want it SO badly. I've already told Kim that I have to boycott her blog until after the Super Bowl since she's pulling for the Packers (go Steelers) so I'm glad you posted this. :)

Mateja ^_^ on February 3, 2011 at 9:08 AM said...

Yum-O Stromboli! Sometimes, when I'm in a huge pinch, I'll use Pillysbury pizza dough from the can. Adding mustard is really good too!

mmMMM! Yum! Stromboli is my ultimate comfort food. My mom used to make it all the time for us. I loved it! Thanks for sharing awesome photos!

Yay for Stromboli - my husband would be so happy if I made this for our Super Bowl tonight, great job!

This sounds sooooo yummy!

Louberry on February 11, 2011 at 12:09 PM said...

Wow... this looks DIVINE. I'm going to be making this this weekend!

Kaity on February 24, 2011 at 11:24 PM said...

This looks really good and I'm going to have my mother tweak her recipe to try part of this. I have never tried it with regular ham, my mother always has used Prosciutto, Pepperoni, and Salami for meat. Adding prosciutto is more expensive but believe me it is worth it! And oh so good. But I will have to tell her about the spices, she's never done that before.

I just made 2 of these loaves...one pepperoni-mushroom, & one broccoli/chicken/cheddar. I made the dough into a braid as opposed to a closed loaf. Topped the pepperoni loaf w/ Parmesan & the chicken one w/ rosemary. They turned out amazing! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Hi this is Nicole from Colie’s Kitchen I just discovered your blog and wanted to drop by and say hi. I am now a new follower. I would love to have you stop by Colie’s Kitchen if you get a chance. www.colieskitchen.com

talltennisgal on February 5, 2012 at 11:09 AM said...

I am going to make this today! Just FYI, my grocery store sells pizza dough in a ball fresh from their bakery. That is what I am going to use. Serving with a caesar vinegarette dressing. Yum!

Theresa Carlile on April 28, 2012 at 6:18 PM said...

Loved this recipe!! Thanks for sharing! I made it twice last week and just posted my results on my blog with a link to your blog. Feel free to stop by and take a look http://threeyellowlemons.blogspot.com/2012/04/stromboli.html

Thanks so much for this recipe! It has become a lunch staple in our house. I use all whole wheat flour with 2Tbsp of gluten and it works out great. I make and bake both and freeze one for an easy supper on a busy day.

Lady Lucy on August 27, 2012 at 12:32 PM said...

My mouth and tummy thank you. I made it last night and it had a wonderful taste. So glad I found this super easy receipe.

Made this for New Year's Eve and it was a big hit. I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of white flour. Also - made the dough the night before, covered with syran wrap and put in the refrigerator until the next evening. Took it out and put bowl on the warm oven for about 30 minutes, then punched it down, separated in half (froze one half) and rolled out the one half on floured parchment paper. Will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
