I am always looking for new recipes to try, new exciting flavours and interesting ingredients combinations, because at the end of the day boring food is just boring! So when you discover something new its great. For me its recently been the Stromboli. Before coming across a recipe for one I had never heard of it! I know shocking! I thought I knew all the pizza forms. For those that do not know, a Stromboli is a rolled up pizza – its ingenious and I do not know how I haven’t come across this before.
It’s just as easy to make as pizza but it has a novelty factor. If you are in the mood for making pizza ( and home-made is always so much better than shop bought!) then give this a go for something different!
250g Basic Pizza Dough
3 tbsp tomato puree
100g thin salami
100g thinly sliced mozzarella
1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees and place a large baking tray in the oven to heat up. Roll out the pizza dough to a 24xm x 30cm rectangle.
2. Spread the tomato puree over the rolled out pizza dough. Then lay the salami over the top, then the scatter the spinach. Finally put the mozzarella over the top. Carefully roll the dough from the shortest side with the seam facing down. Brush with a little olive oil.
3. Carefully lift the rolled pizza onto the pre heated baking tray and place in the oven for 20-25mins until golden brown.
To serve slice the stromboli and serve with a green salad. To make it veggie why not use ricotta, spinach and mozzarella or through in some roasted peppers – Yum!!
