    I have several variations of the stromboli recipes from this site. For time purposes, I let my dough thaw on the counter wrapped in saran wrap sprayed with pam. I do NOT use the cooked ground sausage in this, it makes it way to greasy. For easy clean-up of the flour I wet the counter with a damp cloth and lay 2 pieces of saran wrap onto it. Add a small amount of flour on plastic and roll dough. Then just pull up the plastic with no flour mess on the counter! For a quicker baking time I cook at a higher temperature, 375 for 15-18 minutes. Served with Pizza Sauce I as a dipping sauce. This is a regular Friday night "pizza" at our house (even my kids can make it)! It cost less than a pizza chain's pizza!  -  06 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We thought this was quite good, and a nice change of pace. I might not use both salami and pepperoni; it seemed a little salty. Next time, I might try a little sliced pepperocini peppers or mushrooms or onions to make it a little less meaty. My husband really liked this!  -  18 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent recipe, the only change I made was that I used the refrigerated Pillsbury Pizza dough and it came out just fine. I also tried some sauce on the side.  -  09 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
