You’ll love our Garlic Butter Pepperoni Stromboli! Stromboli is similar to a calzone, though without ricotta cheese or sauce. It’s an offshoot of pizza, though it’s an American creation, not Italian. It’s believed Italian American immigrants created it and named it after a film.
Our recipe is easy to make, and tastes great! Let’s talk about it.
We used pizza dough from the store. It was easy and accessible, and saved us time. If you have a killer pizza dough recipe, go for it!
Roll that dough out into a long rectangle, then add some Mozzarella cheese down the center. Put your pepperoni on top. It’s pretty classic pizza flavors.
Then paint the rest of the exposed dough with some our of Fresh Churned Garlic Butter! It adds great flavor– garlic butter makes everything taste better!
Cut the exposed down into strips on both sides, then fold the strips over onto the pepperoni and cheese. I prefer this method to rolling, because it ensures that the dough is completely cooked.
Once all the dough is folded over, bake it! Feel free to brush a little more Garlic Butter right as it comes out of the oven!
Wait a few minutes before you cut it, or the cheese will ooze out. Serve with marinara sauce or some Garlic Butter for dipping!
