The Best Stromboli Ever!

The best Stromboli filled with ham pepperoni cheese and spices.

This is another favorite recipe, especially for my husband. Whenever I ask him what I should make for dinner, this is what he chooses. The dough recipe makes two loaves, so if you're not planning for that many people you can freeze half for a later date (that's what I did, so the below filling recipe is for one).

The Best Stromboli Recipe Ever
Prep time: 60 min
Cook time: 25 min

1 (0.25 oz) package active dry yeast: 
1 1/3 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 tsp Salt
4 to 5 cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 lb Thinly Sliced Ham
1/4 lb Reduced fat Pepperoni
Dried Basil
Dried Oregano
4 slices Provolone Cheese
1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In bowl of electric stand mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt, and 2 cups flour. With Paddle attachment, beat until smooth. Stir in flour; enough to form a soft dough.

 Switch to the dough hook attachment. Knead dough on low speed until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 45 minutes).

 Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll one portion into a 15x12 inch rectangle. Freeze the other half of dough for later use. Arrange ham slices lengthwise down half of rectangle. Place pepperoni on top. Sprinkle with a little bit of basil and oregano. Arrange provolone slices over the top and then add mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with a little more basil and oregano. Fold plain half of dough over filling and seal ends well. Brush with oil; Sprinkle with oregano.

Bake on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; cut into 1 inch slices.
