Broccoli and Cheese Stromboli

I love saying the word Stromboli. It makes me feel so Italian and I can't help saying with the most over exaggerated fake Italian accent. Stromboli is basically just a wrapped pizza, almost similar to a calzone and is simple to make, yummy and impressive to present. Like pizza you can change up the fillings inside but I went for broccoli and cheese because that is what I had lying around. Anything you like on your pizza you can put in the stromboli including sauce. If you make this in advance and want to re-heat it make sure to do so uncovered in a toaster or oven so that the bottom does not get soggy. Enjoy!



1 recipe pizza dough
2 10 oz boxes chopped broccoli, or big bag frozen broccoli defrosted and chopped
1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
1 cup Mozzarella
1 cup parmesan
1/2 tsp granulated garlic powder
salt, pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten
sesame seeds

Pre-heat the oven to 350.Make the dough and roll it out into a rectangle. Mix the rest of the ingredients making sure it is well seasoned. Spread the mixture on the dough leaving an inch border around. Brush some beaten egg on the side of the dough you are not starting from and starting from the other side gently roll up the dough and tuck in the sides. Transfer to a baking sheet seam side down, brush with egg yolk, make a few slits in the dough for air to escape and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for about 35- 45 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Looks absolutley delicious ! I hate to sound dense, but is this a loaf or log, as opposed to individual portions ? What would the size of the rolled out dough be , approximately ? How many portions would this yield?
