J’s Family Stromboli

Stromboli isn’t exactly the right term for this dish. This dish it more of a calzone than a stromboli, but this is what Josh’s family call it. This is only the second time that I’ve made this recipe, and though my first time didn’t come out as well as this time, that was also my first time making dough from scratch. I’ve also made a couple tweaks to the recipe that I received, but most of the recipe is the same.

  1. Into a bowl, bloom 3 3/8 tsp of yeast (1 1/2 packets) with 1/2 cup of warm water.
  2. Add 3 Tbsp oil, 6 cups of flour, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Mix into a dough, then let rest covered until doubled in size.
  3. Punch down dough, remove from bowl, and split in half.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 F
  5. Roll out dough into rounds about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. They should have a diameter of over 12 inches.
  6. Spray your baking sheets with non stick spray.
  7. Place half of your dough on the sheet with half hanging off. On the half that is on the sheet, place 8 oz of pepperoni/salami, 8 oz of shredded mozzarella cheese, and 6 oz of Mild banana pepper rings with some of it’s juice sprinkled over top. Fold dough in half and pinch the edges shut. Add vent holes on the top with a knife or a fork.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes. The top should have a nice crisp sound when tapped.
  9. Repeat step 7 and 8 for second round.
  10. Brush each stromboli with 1 Tbsp of melted butter and sprinkle with parmasean, oregano, and basil.
  11. Wait 7 minutes before cutting into strips and serve. This meal can easily feed a family of five with 3 boys and still have leftovers! For just the two of us it will be over 5 meals.
