Unlike some other Difference Betweens we’ve had, this one can be broken down pretty simply. Let’s check out these two Italian-based dishes.
This recipe that I found here is of a traditional Stromboli as in it is pizza-like. A calzone, basically.
As with my pull-apart cheesy bread recipe, this one will take some practice before looking as pretty as it can, but boy, is it tasty regardless.
- 1 pizza crust dough*
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce, plus more for dipping
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella and/or provolone cheese
- 8 slices salami
- 6 slices deli honey ham
- 1 egg
- dried parsley and Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
*I used Pillsbury pizza crust. The original creator of the recipe links to a homemade pizza dough recipe. Or, one of her commenters mentioned using French bread instead.
I’m on a Stromboli kick. I actually made up this recipe on my own – wow! I don’t have to link to or credit anyone else. What a feeling.
- 6 to 8 deli sliced rare roast beef
- 1 cup button mushrooms
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 to 1 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (could also use sliced or shredded provolone)
- Pillsbury pizza crust
I modified this recipe slightly by switching out the cubed chicken for 6 to 8 deli slices of ham; still use blanched broccoli, shredded cheese, and Pillsbury’s pizza crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
I did not go out and barbecue for Memorial Day today, but I did try a new recipe that I found here. It’s basically chicken, broccoli, and cheese, rolled up in pizza dough. Perfection.
- 1 Pillsbury classic pizza crust (thick)
- 1 cup cooked, cubed chicken
- 1 cup chopped broccoli, blanched
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- oil (to cook chicken in)
You will also need parchment paper.
