Step 1

At least 1 hour before you’d like to start assembling stromboli, prepare the DeLallo Pizza Dough Kit according to package directions: combine the kit contents in a large bowl, seasoning with a pinch of salt. Add in the warm water, stirring until the dough begins to come together. The mixture will be very shaggy & wet. Turn it out on to a lightly floured surface. Knead until the dough comes together in a soft & smooth ball, 2-3 minutes. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased mixing bowl. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel & set it in a warm place in your kitchen to rise until the dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Step 2

When the dough is risen & you are ready to begin baking the stromboli, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, ensuring a rack is positioned in the bottom third of the oven.

Step 3

Using a knife or a bench scraper, divide the dough into 2 equal pieces (each approx. 12-15 ounces). Place one half of the dough on a lightly floured surface, sprinkling a little flour over the dough to prevent sticking. Use your fingers to press the dough flat & spread it out slightly, then use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 10×14-inch rectangle. Repeat with second portion to create 2 strombolis. See Recipe Notes, below, for tips for rolling out stromboli dough & make-ahead/storage guidance.

Step 4

Brush 3 tablespoons of your sauce of choice over one of the prepared stromboli doughs, leaving a 1-inch border along the other long side & both short sides & a slightly wider border along one long side (aim for 2-3 inches, doing so helps with rolling the stromboli). Sprinkle 1 cup shredded cheese over top the sauce. Layer 8 ounces meat of choice on top of the cheese & sprinkle 1 cup shredded cheese over the meats. If desired, add on one last layer of up to 4 ounces add-ons of choice.

Step 5

Brush exposed edges around the toppings with egg wash. Fold the two short sides towards the center of the stromboli. Beginning with the long side with the 1-inch border, carefully fold the stromboli towards the opposite side with the wider 2-3 inch border. Aim to fold the stromboli twice, the short sides should stay tucked in as you go. Carefully transfer the stromboli to parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush a light coating of egg wash over the entire surface of the stromboli. Use a paring knife to cut 4 small slits along the top of the stromboli to allow steam to escape as it bakes. Sprinkle optional toppings over top. Repeat Steps 4-5 with the second stromboli.

Step 6

Transfer the stromboli to the oven & bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 7

Allow stromboli to rest 5 minutes before slicing into 1 1/2-inch cross sections. Serve warm with additional sauce for dipping as desired. Enjoy!
