Stromboli with Marinara Sauce Recipe

Hello Everybody! Today I want to share with you my delicious stromboli recipe! With the warmer weather finally here, I love to bring my cooking outdoors and use my BBQ more. I like the way the dough turns out on the BBQ more than when cooked in the oven. Watch along as I prepare this recipe in the video below or keep reading for the written recipe.

Ingredients:

Stromboli

  • pizza dough
  • 2 hot italian sausages broken into bite size pieces, casing removed
  • 8 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • all purpose flour
  • semolina flour
  • olive oil

Marinara Sauce

  • 32 oz. tomato sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onions, chopped
  • 2 pinches of oregano
  • fresh hot pepper, optional
  • olive oil

Preheat a pizza stone on the BBQ to 500 degrees.

To begin, you must have your pizza dough prepared. You can either get it from the store or prepare your own. I have my homemade pizza dough recipe here.

Add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil to a pan and cook the sausage until golden brown. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool down.

After uncovering the dough, it should look relaxed and ready to be flattened. Sprinkle a handful of flour onto your working area, as seen in the video. Begin flattening the dough using your fingers and palms of your hands. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a rectangular shape.

Begin adding the sausage along the center of the dough and then layer the mozzarella slices on top. You can also use shredded mozzarella cheese if you prefer. Take your beaten egg and add a tablespoon of water to it and mix. Spread the egg mixture around the edges of the dough. Now begin folding the edges over the center of the dough. The egg mixture will keep your dough sealed. Once all of your edges are folded over, coat the top of the stromboli with the egg mixture. This helps to give it a nice golden crust. Take a knife or fork and make several slits on the top side of the dough to allow air to escape while cooking.

Sprinkle a few teaspoons of semolina flour on top of a pizza peel, and place the stromboli on top; this will prevent the dough from sticking. Now you slide the stromboli off of the pizza peel onto the pizza stone in the BBQ.

Bake the stromboli on one side for about 4 to 5 minutes and then flip over and continue to bake for about 10 more minutes or until the crust is a golden brown. Remove from the BBQ and set aside for at least 5 minutes.

Slice the stromboli and dip into some homemade marinara sauce (recipe found below) and enjoy! Salute cin cin!

Homemade Marinara Sauce Recipe

Begin by adding some olive oil to a pan and frying the onions and garlic over a medium flame until golden, for about 3 minutes . Add the fresh hot pepper or hot pepper flakes and fry for about 1 minute.

Now pour in the tomato sauce and sprinkle in the oregano. Stir all together, lower the flame, and continue to cook for about 10-15 minutes.

Pour some into a bowl and you’re ready to dip some stromboli into it!
