Snow Day Stromboli

Thursday I worked from home since winter took a big crap on Philadelphia.

MFD went to the store on Wednesday night to get fat guy in a little coat food because who wants to be snowed in without it? Stromboli sounded warm and delicious so I asked him to get the stuff for it on a whim.

pizza dough (I used Pillsbury in a can because I was out of bread flour to make my own - use your favorite)
2/3-1cup of pizza sauce (I make my own: heat 15 oz can of tomato sauce and  6 oz can of tomato paste. Add onion powder, garlic powder, garlic salt, basil, italian seasoning, salt to taste) 
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
6 slices cooked ham
12 slices genoa salami
1 egg
1 tsp milk or water
Italian seasoning
Garlic salt

Preheat oven to 500.

Roll pizza dough out into a rectangle with the long side facing you. I do this on parchment paper but it's not necessary.

Spread sauce out almost to the edges, leaving about 1.5 inches of room on the short side edges. Top with one cup of cheese.

Rip ham into pieces and place lovingly where you will. Layer with slices of genoa salami and top with remaining cup of cheese.

Crack egg into a small bowl and beat. Add milk or water and beat again. Congratulations, you have just made an egg wash.

Roll short side edges in. Brush with egg wash.

Beginning with the long side edge closest to you, roll up like a jelly roll. Press along the seam when you come to the end.

Place stromboli seam side down on baking sheet. Brush top and sides with egg wash, then sprinkle Italian seasoning and garlic salt on the top. Cut a few slits in the top.

Bake at 500 for 8-10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 5 before cutting into it. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping if desired.

It was insanely easy and delicious. Best idea ever. It would also be good as a party app.

As for who had the best snow day ever...

  1. Oh my goodness. That looks amazing.

  2. Here's the thing. I think you should just come to my kitchen and teach me how to cook, because all of your foods look amazing.

  3. I was salivating when you initially posted this on Thurs. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Steph! I'll be making this soon. Yum!

  4. Sounds so good and the garlic sprinkles on the top was the kicker for me!

  5. So yummy..making it for the Cause game tonight..Thanks for the play by play

  6. This looks so good! We are supposed to have a snow day here today and since I am babysitting the girls this might be perfect.

  7. That Pillsbury dough is dangerously tasty. I rarely let myself buy it. Easy way to eat a whole pizza.

  8. "Rip ham into pieces and place lovingly where you will." Hahahahahahah! This is why I love you. :)
    So is this like a calzone?? I don't know SHIT about why food is named what it's named.

  9. i'm not much of a pizza person and havent to watch what i eat due to my condition. esp stuff like this. but it looks good.

  10. Oh my gosh - this looks amazing!! It looks like we're getting even more snow tomorrow, so I could have a day to make it ;) Stopping over from the NE Bloggers Pin Committee and happy to be following your blog now!

  11. I love the Nothin' But Love bracelets!

  12. I am catching up on blog reading today! The stromboli looks bangin'. It also looks easy, which is key in my culinary world. Would Pioneer Woman's pizza dough work? That's the only one I've had success with (mainly because it's, again, easy!).
