Stromboli idea?

I want to make one for dinner. Maybe a cordon-blueish taste?

I have red peppers I'd roast to throw them in, some ham slices, swiss, chicken, thought I'd caramelize some onions..... anything else come to mind?

Can I just use any pizza dough recipe? I usually do for calzones..... I thought I'd throw in some whole wheat flour.

I found something similar at allrecipes but the ingredient lis makes it seem bland.

Pizza dough will do the trick. Sounds tasty

squzie, that does sound good!

every stromboli that i've ever had just used regular pizza dough, so you should be ok.

you could try adding a leaf or two of fresh sage along it's length.

Call me madam Stromboli..... Calzone.....Calbolzoni.... whatever...

It turned out GREAT!!

Did roasted yellow and red pepper, caramelized onion, garlic (added last 5 min of the onions) swiss, pre-cooked chicken, a sprinkle of pepper and nutmeg.

I made the dough 1/2 white 1/2 wheat.

Only problem was I forgot to cut vents in the top... it was a teeny gooey inside, but its ok cuz my fillings didn't have alot of moisture. :)

I didn't take a pic cuz I was too overwhelmed with "helpers".

It was really good!!!!

Glad it turned out well, suzi. One of mine looked a little like The Elephant Man. I overstuffed the chix a bit. It's in the freezer. From memory, chicken, broc, ham & swiss - with honey dijon mustard. Think I may make a few more for the next picnic, & try chix/spinach/muenster/roasted red sweet peppers & shrooms.

Might as well put the recipe here. It's the first stromboli thread I came to.
This is my sister's stromboli recipe. One of the things I loved about it most was the bread because it wasn't "doughy", the ingredients stood out. I see that she bought the bread dough frozen. I'm sure you bakers could adapt one of your recipes... Me, I think I'll buy frozen so I don't screw it up


1 LOAF BREAD DOUGH (THAW ONLY ABOUT 1 HOUR SO IT DOESN’T RISE)
¼ LB. HAM
¼ LB. SALAMI
¼ LB. PEPPERONI
¼ LB. PROVOLONE CHEESE

ROLL OUT BREAD DOUGH TO ABOUT 12 X 12. LAYER MEATS AND CHEESE ON TOP. ROLL UP, THEN BAKE ON GREASED COOKIE SHEET ½ HOUR AT 350 DEGREE OR IF FROZEN 45 MINUTES. SERVE WITH SAUCE. CAN BE MADE AHEAD AND FROZEN.

The yellow/red bell pepper combo was a nice touch.

I use marinara as a dipping sauce for stromboli's and calzones.
