Garbage Stromboli and Dough

Ashley Dawkins


I say "garbage" because you can make Stromboli with whatever you have in the fridge that you were planning on getting rid of.
You can be creative and plan it, or in a pinch you can make a snack for many!

How to Make Garbage Stromboli and Dough


  • 1Prepare the dough my fluffing together the yeast and flower with a fork. Mix well.
  • 2Slowly introduce the warm water, careful not to make soupy.
  • 3Knead for about 7-10 minutes until the dough becomes elastic-y in texture.
  • 4Put kneaded dough into a little greased bowl and let stand for 30 minutes.
  • 5Set oven to 300* and begin to knead the dough a couple more turns. Roll out the dough and form it into a rectangle.
  • 6Lay down your cheese and then the rest of your toppings. Take your garlic powder and put a nice dusting over your toppings.
  • 7Now, to roll the Stromboli, make sure it's tight but don't thin out the dough as you go otherwise it will tear while baking. You want to get as many rolls into it as you can, you want the layers.
    I find it better to tuck in the ends on the left and right as you're rolling. Hopefully the picture is helpful.
  • 8Seal the Stromboli edges together by pinching them shut. Place it on parchment paper with the seam facing down, and onto your baking pan. Cook for 30 minutes.
  • 9When the 30 minutes are over, take the melted butter and the other wash ingredients and mix them. Pull out the Stromboli and spoon the mixture on. Shut off your oven and put the Stromboli in for another 10 minutes. (Sometimes I leave mine there until I'm ready to eat it.)
  • 10Take out and enjoy with a side of marinara.
