So this is a recipe that I've made for many of my friends already. It's great if you're a student and want to make food when you don't want to spend lots of time in the kitchen but still want to eat a lot. It's also great if you dice it, pluck tooth picks in it and serve it at a buffet at a party. Number of servings depends on how hungry people are. I'd say there's a minimum of two but if you are really really hungry you can eat one on your own....
It's not from a recipe book but preparation is really easy.
Unfortunately if you are in the States finding "Herbes de provence" is not easy as it's a French thing. But this is what it's made of:
"3 tablespoons dried thyme
2 tablespoons dried savory
1 tablespoon dried oregano
3 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 teaspoons dried marjoram
1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers (optional)"
Plain rosemary is probably the easiest substitute I've used while in the States.
You may also have a hard time finding pizza dough if you are in the States (at least I've had). I've found some in aluminum tubes at Stater Bros or as raw dough in bags at Trader Joe's (maybe Target and Walmart are better). All I had to do is lay the dough out on a clean table with flour spread on it. I then proceeded to spread it out. If you don't have have a rolling pin (students don't have these in their apartments) you can use a glass bottle (wine bottles do the trick ;) ).
So the preparation:
1. Preheat oven to 375°F (180°C). Roll out the pizza dough on baking paper (parchment) on an oven sheet. Place in the center 3 slices of ham, cover with the salami and finish with thinly slice mozzarella of your liking. We put the ham in a sort of triangle, the salami in a five pointed star and the mozzarella in a circle. (Very geometric and mathematical ^_^).
2. Wrap one side of the pizza dough over the composition and then wrap the other side over to close the Stromboli. Roll or fold the ends as to close the wrap. Make sure the wrap is nicely sealed.
3. Pour on it the olive oil and you can use your finger to spread it. Cover with garlic powder and Herbes de provence (or rosemary). Add salt if desired. Put it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until pizza dough is golden brown and reasonably crisp. Remove and let cool down.
Serve this diced or in large thick portions.
- The only "hard" part in this recipe is leaving the Stromboli the right amount of time in the oven. Ideally the crust should be entirely cooked and cheese inside should be melted.
- There are other recipes online with more ingredients. This one is definitely my favorite.
- For vegetarians I suppose you can substitute the meat with any other vegetables.
