Hubs had a special request on my snow day today: Stromboli. Stromboli is a more fun way to say “pizza bread.” It’s easy and you can fill it with whatever you like stuffed in bread! 🙂 It’s the perfect appetizer & game day food. However, if you are like us, we could eat any combo of bread, cheese, pepperoni, and pizza sauce for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I am actually making 3 strombolis tonight: 1 for dinner, and 2 for Nile to eat this weekend while I’m out of town!
From the kitchen of: Debi Cooper (who else?)
Ready to bake frozen bread dough (I get the 5 pack from Kroger)
Pepperoni Slices (I use turkey pep)
2 cups Shredded Mozzerella
Egg wash (1 egg, beat with a little h2o)
Shredded Parm Cheese (or your fave stronger cheese, I’m using Asiago)
Spray a frozen bread dough with cooking spray and place in plastic bag for 6-8 hours to rise.
PERFECT to set out before work to make when you get home.
When you’re ready to prep, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
After dough is soft, risen, and playable, lay out on floured surface.
Roll out as best as possible and fill with cheese & pepperoni (or other fillings of your choice).
Tonight is just cheese & pep, but later I am going to make one with sausage & pep for N’s weekend food. Anything you can put on a pizza, you can stuff into a stromboli (I prefer mushrooms!).
Next, roll both sides in, tucking in the ends. Place on cookie sprayed pan seam-side down.
Whisk your egg wash (1 egg, a little h20) and brush over all surface of bread.
Top stromboli with Italian Seasoning & Shredded Cheese (I used asiago because I had it)
Lastly (very important!), cut thin slits (4-5) in the top of your stromboli to vent. If you forget the slits, cheese will explode out anywhere it can!
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes.
HOW EASY IS THAT?!
Slice it up & serve with your favorite pizza/pasta sauce!
YUM!!! 🙂 Dough is rising right now for some late night stromboli making for the weekend!
