Notes on Ingredients

The magic of this stromboli lies in its rich combination of ingredients:

  • Pizza Crust Dough: Provides the perfect base, creating a crispy yet chewy exterior.
  • Spaghetti Sauce: Adds a tangy, flavorful layer that complements the meats.
  • Ham, Capacola Sausage, Salami, and Pepperoni: A quartet of meats that bring a burst of savory flavors.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: Melts beautifully, creating a gooey, cheesy filling.
  • Onion, Mushrooms, and Green Bell Pepper: Fresh vegetables add a delightful crunch and balance to the rich meats and cheese.
  • Garlic Powder: Enhances the overall flavor with a subtle garlic kick.

How to Make Ham and Cheese Stromboli

  1. Preparation: Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Allow the pizza dough to rise as per package instructions, then punch it down and divide it into four pieces.
  2. Rolling the Dough: On a floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a long oval shape.
  3. Assembling the Stromboli: Spread spaghetti sauce on each piece of dough. Layer with ham, capacola, salami, and pepperoni. Sprinkle garlic powder over the meats. Top with mozzarella cheese, onion, mushrooms, and green bell pepper.
  4. Sealing the Dough: Bring the long sides of the dough together over the center, pinch to seal, and place seam-side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut three diagonal slices on top to allow steam to escape.
  5. Baking: Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until the stromboli is golden brown.
