Easy Stromboli Recipe

A Stromboli is a delicious type of turnover that is filled with cheeses and other pizza toppings and rolled up jelly-roll style and baked. It is a fun way to change things up a bit for dinner.  This is so delicious and I think would make a really special meal for your family or for a night when you have company. It would be fantastic with a Caesar salad and if you wanted a more hearty meal a bowl of Zuppa Toscana to start the meal. Here is how we made our own stromboli recipe.

What Is The Difference Between Stromboli And Calzone?

 
The difference between this dish and calzone is the way that they are closed.  A stromboli is much like a burrito and it is rolled like a jelly roll to close it, sealing the end and then slicing the top and baked.  A calzone is closed like a hand pie.  The sauce and toppings are put on half of the dough.  Then the side of the dough with no toppings on it is folded up and over the toppings so that the ends meet making it a half-circle.  The edges are folded together to seal and then it is baked. 
 

What Is Inside A Stromboli?

 
On the inside, it has cheeses such as mozzarella, parmesan, romano, or other cheeses that you normally put on your pizzas. It would have meats like pepperoni, salami, prosciutto, capocollo, or bresaola. You can put onions, olives, diced peppers, mushrooms, or any other vegetables that you enjoy on your pizza. 
 

Is A Hot Pocket A Stromboli?

Actually, a “Hot Pocket” is more like a calzone because this is rolled up like a jelly roll. 
 

How Do You Eat Stromboli

To eat it cut the stromboli across the short width of it.  Serve on a plate and to eat use a knife and fork and cut into bite-size pieces.
 

Can I Eat Stromboli Cold?

 
Yes, if you’d like to eat it cold you certainly can.  We think it is good even at room temperature. 
 

Do Stromboli Have Sauce?

 
Yes, it does have a sauce.  The sauce is baked into it for this dish, unlike the calzone which normally gives you sauce on the side for dipping the calzone in. We use our sauce for the dipping sauce for them and for the sauce inside of this dish.
 

Why Is A Stromboli Better Than a Pizza?

 
I’m not sure I would discount pizza but this dish is delightful. Because it is rolled the way it is you can fit many more toppings inside of it than you do on a pizza.  
 

How Long Is Stromboli Good For?

 
If you do have leftovers of your creation, the next question is how long will it keep?  This dish will stay good for about seven days in an air-tight container in the refrigerator or about 6 months in the freezer. Make sure it is sealed up well in an air-tight container so it does not dry out.
