I remember years ago when I lived in California, one of my friends flew with her new boyfriend to New York to visit his Italian family. She returned and told us about the most awesome loaf of bread that his mother had made that was filled with pizza sauce, meats and cheeses. I immediately began searching for this dreamy loaf and that’s how I discovered Stromboli!
I know, I was a little late on the whole Stromboli scene, in fact, at that time I was limited to the entire Italian food scene. I now knew something was totally missing in my childhood not having any Italian food restaurants or friends in the small West Texas town where I grew up.
I grew up with southern food and Mexican food but Italian food was limited to spaghetti or pizza. Now even though I still love Mexican food, my first choice is Italian! Whether it is Eggplant Parmigiana, Pasta Primavera, Carbonara, Chicken Alfredo Baked Ziti, Stuffed Shells or any other pizza hacks, I will choose Italian food first ever time! (See below for some of my favorite Italian Dishes).
This Stromboli is made from my homemade pizza dough, I use half the dough for each loaf so you can either make two loafs or wrap the other half in clear wrap and save it in the fridge for a couple days for a quick pizza.
I used a homemade pizza sauce, you could use a jar sauce but this recipe for homemade is easier, cheaper and can be whipped up in minutes and has an awesome flavor.
This Stromboli is totally invited to our Super Bowl party and I am also thinking about making another one with basil pesto instead of the red pizza sauce! I am still working on which other ingredients would be delish in it! So if you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know! I hope you enjoy this Stromboli like we have.
