Now that you know how to make your own pizza dough (see here), you might want to branch out a bit. The other night we decided to try making stromboli's for the first time. Stromboli's are sort of like a piece of pizza rolled onto itself. Same flavors, different fillings, easy and fun to make.
Ham and Pepperonio Strombolis
1 ball of pizza dough (recipe link above)
1/4 - 1/2 cup basic tomato sauce (here)
4 slices of ham
20 slices of pepperoni (or to taste)
1 cup shredded mozzarella or slices of fresh mozzarella
1 egg, beaten and mixed with 1 tsp of water
Preheat oven to as high as it goes - mine goes to 550 degrees. Divide the ball of dough into two pieces. Roll each out on a floured board into a large oval shape. Place about 2 tbsp of tomato sauce (or more to taste) on the bottom of each piece of dough, leaving a one inch border around all edges.
Top each piece of dough with 1/4 of the mozzarella. Top with half the pepperoni and then with half the ham slices on each dough.
Top each stromboli with an additional 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. Brush the edges of the stromboli with the egg wash.
Start with one long side of the stromboli and start to roll it over onto it self. Continue to roll the stromboli until you reach the other one inch border. Place the stromboli on a pizza stone (or baking sheet), seam side down. Brush more egg wash to cover each stromboli, and cut a few slits into the top of each. Top with a little sea salt.
Place the strombolis in a hot oven and bake for about 30 minutes, until the strombolis are bubbly and the dough is browned.
Allow to cool a bit before cutting into it. Enjoy!!
