Pizza Stromboli, the super explosive rolled pizza!

by Sara Suardi Editorial staff

When we talk about Stromboli pizza we refer to the rolled pizza born in Philadelphia, which contains within it a spiral of flavors, ready to erupt when each slice is cut.

If you are wondering why a pizza with the name of an Italian island, and of the homonymous volcano that lives there, is actually an American creation, do not worry, everything has an explanation and now we will clarify your ideas.

Pizza Stromboli: the origins

The Stromboli pizza was born in the 1950s in Philadelphia, in the local Essington Pizzeria, which became Romano & # 8217s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant in 1950. Its owner, Roman Nazarene, who emigrated to America in 1923, had already become famous for his special Tomato Pie, when he was still selling pizza on a traveling cart on the streets of Washington Street in southern Philadelphia, but the brilliant idea dates back to the & # 8217winter of 1949. At the time Nazzareno began experimenting with a new sandwich using the pizza dough and stuffing it with Italian cured meats, peppers and cheeses which he rolled into a sausage.

Initially this sandwich did not have a name, but a local resident and regular customer, William Schoefield, suggested that he call him Stromboli. It was 1950 and the press was relentlessly churning out scornful news about the love scandal between the actress Ingrid Bergman and the director Roberto Rossellini, fell in love during the shooting of the film Stromboli. Moral indignation across the country followed when Bergman left her husband and daughter for Rossellini and gave birth to a son out of wedlock. Influenced by the scandal and international publicity, Mr. Schoefield suggested: & # 8220Why don't you call it & # 8230 Stromboli? & # 8221 and the name stuck!

The original menu of Romano & # 8217s from 1954

Stromboli pizza recipe

The Stromboli pizza is prepared with the classic pizza dough, which is stuffed with delicious ingredients and then rolled to form a long salami of leavened dough. In addition to being very appetizing, the Stromboli pizza is reminiscent of the eruption of a volcano, whose lava comes out with each cut showing tomato, stringy cheese and all the flavors of the Italian peninsula. A delicious rolled pizza to fill according to your tastes and what you have in the refrigerator. This year the Stromboli pizza turns 75 and what better way to pay homage than to prepare it at home?

Ingredients for the dough

500 g flour 00
250 ml water
12 g brewer's yeast
10 g fine salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Ingredients for the filling

300 ml of marinara sauce (tomato sauce flavored with garlic and oregano)
Spicy salami, ham, coppa or other cured meats to taste (choose one)
150 g mozzarella or other stringy cheeses
1 bell pepper
Basil to taste
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper

This is the filling that recalls the original filling, but you can put onions, olives, anchovies or other ingredients you are fond of, the watchword "explosion of taste", then unleash your imagination to create the tastiest and most delicious combinations but be careful not to mix too many flavors.


To make the Stromboli pizza, start withdough, then crumble the yeast in a small bowl with the water and mix so that it dissolves. In another large bowl, sift the flour, add the salt, extra virgin olive oil and add the water and yeast emulsion, start kneading with your hands or with the help of a fork. Continue to knead until you get a smooth and soft but consistent dough, form a ball and place it in a large bowl, cover with cling film or a damp cloth and place in a warm place, for example the oven turned off with the light on and leave rise for a couple of hours, the volume of the dough must double.

Meanwhile, prepare the ingredients for the filling, fry a clove of garlic in a pan with a drizzle of oil, add the tomato puree and season with salt, pepper and oregano. Cut the pepper and cheese into cubes and the cured meats into slices.

After the rising time, place the dough on a floured pastry board and roll out with a rolling pin a rectangular sheet of about 50 x 45 cm. Sprinkle the marinara sauce on the pastry being careful to leave a frame of a couple of centimeters. Spread the salami you have chosen over the entire surface and finish with cheeses and peppers. Brush the edges with a little water to be able to close the roll better. Finally, perfume the filling with some basil leaves, rolled up the sheet from the longest side and seal the ends well. Transfer the rolled pizza to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the surface with oil and bake in a preheated static oven at 180 ° C for about 1 hour (if in a convection oven at 160 ° C for 50 minutes). When cooked, take the rolled pizza out of the oven and serve it by cutting it into slices.

Place two-thirds of the water in a large bowl. In a saucepan or microwave, bring the other third of water to boil, then add it to the cold water in the bowl. This creates the correct temperature for activating yeast. Whisk the salt, yeast and olive oil into the warm water.

If mixing by hand:
Place the flour in a large bowl and pour the yeast mixture into it. Stir with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together in a ball. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead with both hands for about 10 minutes, until it is firm and well combined, and the dough ball is smooth and shiny. It’s important to note that dough that uses regular flour would be stretchy after kneading due to the gluten proteins strengthening during the kneading process. However, gluten-free flour will perform differently due to the absence of protein in the flour.

Cover with plastic wrap (cling film) and leave to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours.

If using a mixer:
Fit the mixer with the dough hook and place the flour in the mixer bowl. Turn the machine on at a low speed and gradually add the yeast mixture to the flour. Once combined, leave the dough to keep mixing at the same speed for 5-10 minutes, or until the dough is firm and combined.

Cover the dough with plastic wrap (cling film) and leave to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours.

When the dough has roughly doubled in size, divide it into 4 or 3 equal portions each weighing 8.8 / 11.6oz (250/330 grams). The dough may collapse at this stage, but don't panic - this is normal at this point.

In a well-floured, airtight tray, leave the dough portions to rise for a minimum of one hour and up to a maximum of five hours, or until the dough balls have doubled in size.

To shape each piece of dough into a pizza base, place the first dough portion onto a well-floured pizza peel. Gluten-free pizza dough is much more delicate than conventional pizza dough, so handle the dough carefully to avoid tearing it. Press down into the dough using your fingers to flatten and spread the dough into a base, making sure not to press into the very edge of the dough so that a thicker crust can form once it cooks. You can also gently stretch the dough sideways by pressing your palms on either side of the dough and slowly pulling your hands away from each other. Take care not to tear the dough.

When the base is stretched out to a thickness of a ¼ inch (5mm), pick up the pizza peel and give it a gentle shake to ensure the base is not sticking to the peel before you start adding the toppings. Follow our 10 Tips for Launching the Perfect Pizza to avoid dough sticking to the peel.

Fire up your Ooni pizza oven. Aim for 842˚F (450˚C) on the stone baking board inside. You can check the temperature inside your oven quickly and easily using the Ooni Infrared Thermometer.

Launch the pizza into the oven, turning it every 20-25 seconds to ensure it cooks evenly.

The gluten-free dough crust may appear to be cooked before it actually is due to the color the crust develops as it cooks, so don't be afraid to bake the pizza a little longer. The base may also burn a little on the edges as it cooks through simply dust those little burnt spots off after cooking.
