We fill our Stromboli with roasted Mediterranean vegetables and stringy mozzarella for an authentic Italian taste sensation. We serve ours warm from the oven with a little side salad and drizzle of olive oil. Perfect for confident bakers, our Stromboli is made with Allinson's olive oil dough and, much like our Herb Focaccia, makes an excellent dinner party gift. What is Stromboli? Stromboli is a classic Italian-American bread which you can fill with all manner of ingredients. To keep it a Stromboli though, you'd need to use mozzarella cheese. Anything else and it starts to become more like a Calzone, which to be fair, is pretty similar.
Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Mix the water and oil together, then stir in with a cutlery knife.
KNEAD Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer).
Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).
Roll the dough on a flour dusted surface to a rectangle about 25cm x 40cm. Scatter over the basil, veg and mozzarella and season. Tuck the short sides in (to stop the filling escaping) and roll up from the long side like a swiss roll. Lift onto a baking tray, seam-side down.
Bake for 30 minutes until puffed and golden. Cool slightly before slicing.
