Homemade stromboli is basically garlic bread stuffed with pizza.  You roll your favorite pizza toppings and cheese up in pizza dough like a large pizza roll.  I used my Homemade Bread I recipe for the dough.  If you don’t want to make your own dough you could try pizza dough mix.  I have also had success with frozen bread dough or pre-made pizza crust dough.

Stromboli uses sliced cheese rather than the shredded cheese a traditional pizza uses.  It works with shredded cheese but it makes it more difficult to roll.  There also tends to be a larger selection of sliced cheeses at the grocery store.  Try difference kinds of cheeses.

Fill the pizza dough with your favorite toppings and cheese.  I have tried this with everything from pepperoni and pineapple to smoked chicken and beer cheese.  I typically make it with pizza sauce on the side, but it could be put inside too.

Roll everything up and cook until the crust is golden brown.  When cooked through, brush with melted butter and garlic salt.  Serve with a bowl of hot pizza sauce for dipping.

Experiment with this recipe.  Use different doughs, cheeses and toppings until you find the perfect combination.
