How to make the best homemade Stromboli (invented just outside NJ!)
The Stromboli is an American creation.
It was the owner of an Italian-American restaurant, Romano's in Essington, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia, that came up with what we know at the "Stromboli" back in 1950.
Named for the volcanic Italian Island off the coast of Italy and inspired by the movie of the same name notorious for an off-screen affair between married actress, Ingrid Bergman, and married director, Roberto Rossellini, resulting in a love child.
In Italy they might call it a calzone, but those are usually a crescent-shaped turnover, while the Stromboli is rolled into a loaf.
They are easy to make, especially if you buy a frozen pizza dough from the supermarket.
Surprisingly they are very good and versatile.
Try this around the holidays.
It makes a great appetizer, side dish or even a whole meal.
This recipe is similar to the original recipe with a slight twist.
