Stromboli

This is  a great recipe for Stromboli.  It takes a little time because you need to let the dough and the Stromboli raise so make sure you aren’t in a hurry.  It is easy and very good!  It was a welcome treat for dinner!  This is my original pizza crust recipe.

OLIVE OIL MIXTURE:

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. granulated garlic or garlic powder

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp. dried basil

Set aside

YEAST MIXTURE:

1 package of yeast or 2 1/4 tsp yeast

2 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 cup warm water

2 1/2 cups flour

FILLING:

1/2 pound salami

1/4 pound thinly sliced ham

8-9 slices  provolone cheese

1/2 cup banana pepper slices, drained

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

In a large mixing bowl combine warm water, yeast and sugar and stir or whisk  until dissolved.  Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes (this is letting it “proof”).  After 10 minutes, stir in olive oil mixture.

Add flour one cup at a time until incorporated.  Turn onto floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes.  Add flour as needed so dough isn’t sticky.  Form dough into a ball and place back into a greased bowl (spray with nonstick spray).  Cover loosely with saran wrap and let it raise about 1-2 hours until dough has doubled in size.

Take the dough and place on a floured surface.  Shape into a rectangular shape and roll it out into a 12 x 18 rectangle (roughly).

Arrange the toppings onto the dough.

Roll the dough so it forms an 18″ log.  Place the log onto a baking  sheet and brush with 2 Tbsp. olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Allow the Stromboli to raise for an hour, cover loosely with saran wrap.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.   Bake about 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.  Cut into slices and serve with sauce on the side.
