Here is our favourite…
- 500g 00 Flour/Strong white flour
- 250ml Water
- 7g fast action dried yeast
- 10g Salt
- 5g Sugar
- 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 200g Tomato passata
- 2 Garlic cloves finely chopped
- 10 Slices of Salami
- 5 Slices of Prosciutto
- 5 Slices of Mortadella
- 150g Mozzarella
- 100g Parmigiano Reggiano
- Salt & Pepper
- Fresh Basil leaves
For the pizza dough add all the ingredients into a large bowl and combine. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and knead for around 5 minutes until smooth ball. Place the dough into a large oiled bowl and drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the dough and rub in. Cover with plastic cling film and leave to rise for around 2 hours or until double in size.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle measuring about 44cm x 32cm/17in x 13in.
Spread the tomato passata over the dough, leaving a 2cm border around the edge. Then sprinkle generously the Parmigiano Reggiano and garlic over the top. Lay the prosciutto, salami, mortadella, in a single layer over the sauce to cover. Tear the mozzarella into small pieces and dot over the top, then scatter the basil leaves on top. Season with salt and pepper.
Roll the dough up into a log to enclose the filling, gently sealing the ends of the roll as you go. When you get to the end that has no filling on it, gently press to seal, then place the roll seam-side down on a nonstick sheet tray. Brush extra virgin olive oil over the dough, season with a little more salt and pepper. Bake in the center of the oven at 180C until golden brown and puffy, 25 to 30 minutes. Allow the stromboli to cool 5 minutes before slicing it into thick slices.
