Cooking for Real People- Easy Stromboli

For those of you who don't know what Stromboli is, I guess I should explain it. It is an Italian dish, sort of like a pizza that has been rolled up with no sauce. I guess it is similar to a Calzone as well, but it looks like a loaf of bread instead of a pocket. Now, you can add whatever toppings you like in the Stromboli, but we are carnivores around here and like our meat.

Cast of Characters:

1 Tube of Pillsbury French Loaf Dough
1 Package of thinly sliced ham (you won't use the whole thing)
1 Package of Peperoni (you won't use it all)
1 Tablespoon of Butter/Margarine
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese

Step 1- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F /180 degrees C. (these are things you need to know when you live in England.

Step 2. Find a baking sheet. I use a Pampered Chef Rectangle Stone.


Step 3. Open Dough and put it onto the stone. Find the seam and start unrolling it. Sometimes it gets a little stuck but just keep going. It doesn't have to be neat.

Step 4- Put a layer of ham on the dough. Don't put too much. One slice in the layer is plenty. You don't want to over do it.


Step 5- Put a layer of peperoni on top of the ham. Once again, don't over do it. I usually use deli sliced peperoni but I had to go with what I had on hand which was peperoni slices for pizza.


Step 6- Add a layer of Mozzarella cheese. I use about a cup.


Step 7- Roll the Stromboli up from the shorter side of the rectangle. You don't want to go length ways cause then you will have a super long funny looking Stromboli.

Step 8. Make sure the seam from where you have rolled the Stromboli is on the bottom of the roll. This helps it not fall apart or come unrolled when it is baking. Brush the top with melted butter. Don't skimp, this helps it get nice and brown.

Step 9. Bake for 25-30 min or until nice and golden brown.

Step 10. Slice and enjoy.


My kids love Stromboli. They call it inside out pizza. Oh and I just used toppings that I knew they would like. If it was up to me it would have Italian sausage, peppers, onions....you get the idea. Anyways it is super yummy and super easy. It is also a big hit at parties, so if you are going to any Super Bowl festivities it is a good food to bring along.

I am so going to make that. I usually have trouble making stuff that calls for the crescent rolls, but leaving it in one big piece looks doable.
