One might think that making your own Stromboli would be a difficult culinary proposition . . On the contrary — it’s rather easy to prepare, and its the kind of dish that kids also like to make because it means they get to roll up their sleeves, roll some dough and layer in the savory ingredients. Part of my goal as a figure in the cooking world is to show kids how fun cooking can be, while also focusing on how their nutritional choices can impact their health throughout their lives. So invite them to help out!
My Stromboli recipe wraps up the meaty goodness of pepperoni and ham, along with the piquant flavors of sweet peppers and caramelized onions, melded with Mozzarella and Provolone cheese. Think of it like making a sandwich, except you’re making your own “bread.” And if you are a home cook who strives to improve your skills in the kitchen, this is a great recipe with which to start. [More tips and tricks for the home cook can be found in my new cookbook, The Magic of Cooking with Really Good Broth.]
