Stromboli

Since this is one of our favorite foods, the recipe was bound to show up here sometime! I made stromboli for dinner tonight, and it’s not even Friday (which is when I usually cook Italian)!

Ingredients:

– 1 recipe ofย pizza doughย (enough for one pizza)
– 4 slices salami
– 6 slices deli pepperoni
– 5 slices provolone cheese
– 5 slices deli ham
– 1-2 T melted butter
– Italian seasoning
– marinara sauce, for topping

Directions:

Roll the dough out to about a 7×14 rectangle. Arrange meat and cheese in the order given down the center, leaving some room on the ends. Fold the ends up and then the long sides over, sealing the edges. Place on a baking sheet diagonally and cut slashes with a sharp knife. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake at 375ยฐF oven for 30-40 minutes, or until top is browned. Let it rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes before cutting and serving, or else it will be too gooey and the cheese will pull out with the cutter!

Tip: Bake on parchment paper, and put another baking sheet underneath. If you use enough cheese and butter, some will probably leak out as it starts to bubble through the slits and the oven will be a mess! (If it doesn’t, you didn’t use enough cheese and butter ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I like to add extra cheese…tonight I sprinkled some mozzarella and cheddar cheese in there too, and it was delicious.
