If you’ve never eaten a stromboli before think cinnamon rolls. It’s a rectangular pizza minus the sauce, rolled up, baked, and then sliced into pinwheels. It’s a cross between a pizza and a calzone. The best of both worlds. You can use pizza toppings or be more creative.
It’s a good way to use up leftovers and the possibilities for fillings are endless… Layers of salami, prosciutto, and provolone with sauteed green peppers. Chicken, spinach, sauteed mushrooms, and Gouda. Roasted vegetables and cheese. Meatballs and mozzarella. Cheesesteak(!). This one happens to have Italian sausage, peppers, onions, garlic, and lots of mozzarella encased in a crispy crust with a tender inside. A classic and absolutely delicious combo.
