Stromboli is a stuffed bread made with either pizza dough or Italian bread dough, It is stuffed with various Italian Cheeses along with cold cuts or vegetables. This easy Stromboli in 35 mins can be ready for Pizza Party and is a delicious bread shaped like a long cylinder and baked.
Records say that a Stromboli was invented by Italian Americans in the United States in Philadelphia and very similar to a calzone. Stromboli usually does not contain tomato sauce and have all pizza ingredients. However, these days it is made with pizza ingredients and baked as a rolled pizza. Stromboli turns out perfect and is very easy to handle as it is rolled and baked.
What is the difference between a stromboli and a calzone?
A Stromboli and a calzone are almost similar. The shape of the Stromboli makes it different from a calzone. Make a Stromboli with a square/rectangle shape pizza dough, top with pizza ingredients. Stromboli is baked after rolling it into a tight log. While a calzone is made using a round pizza dough that is folded in half with filling before baking.
Stromboli is everything delicious about pizza and a calzone combined. The dough is a soft pillowy having a layer of tomatoes and different toppings. Finally, the cheese added makes sure the dough doesn’t stick together.
How do you keep a stromboli from getting soggy?
Stromboli can end up soggy as it has heavy stuffing inside. So avoid making it soggy, you can spread an even layer of cheese with a thin layer of topping. Just have to make sure we don’t overcrowd the stuffing. Stromboli surely makes a delicious meal on its own.
When I decided to make this version, I had to make with a dough that only requires very little preparation as I had other versions planned along with this one. That is possible with a dough that gets ready in 35 minutes. This is an easy No Rise Stromboli dough that can address your pizza craving in just about 35 minutes. I adapted it from here and made it as it would suit our taste.
