Homemade Stromboli

One of my all time favorite dishes growing up was my Mom's fantastic homemade Stromboli. When I got the oyster cracker recipe from her a while back, I snagged this recipe, too. It is too good not to share.

The recipe is a bit longer than our usual posts, but it's so worth it. We're going to prepare a pizza crust, a flavor spread, and toppings.

Here's what you need for the crust:
- 1 pkg. active dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 2 tbsp. oil
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. salt

Here's how you prepare the crust:
- Dissolve the yeast in the warm water, then add the remaining ingredients.
- Mix vigorously and let rest 5 minutes.

While the crust is rising, prepare the most fantastic/flavorful spread of all time.
(*Preheat your oven! 350 degrees.)

Here's what you need for the spread:
- 2 egg yolks (save your egg whites for later!)
- 1 tbsp. parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp. parsley
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 tsp. garlic powder

Press your pizza crust to fill a greased cookie sheet. Using a spoon or brush, spread your mixture all over your pizza crust, coating it evenly.

Layer your toppings on top of the crust and spread.

Toppings we used (you can use whatever you want!):
- Sliced Ham
- Salami
- Pepperoni
- Mozzarella Cheese

Fold in the sides of your dough to meet in the middle and pinch the edges together tightly to close up the Stromboli. You can see that mine split open after baking, so make sure you have enough dough to properly close it up.

Use your egg whites from earlier to spread on top of your closed Stromboli. This is going to help it look awesome and get a crisp, golden brown crust after it bakes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes.

And there you have it! I have to give an early Mother's Day shout out to my Mom (Nick's mom) for letting me share her recipes on the blog - thank you! The flavorful spread is what really sets this dish apart from a typical homemade pizza or something similar. Dip your Stromboli in your favorite marinara sauce, or enjoy it plain!
