Posted on: March 2, 2021

We do a lot of pizza around here. Like a lot! With many families being short on time Cannoli kitchen has been the go-to place for the best Pizza in Boca Raton. But one of our fan favorites is the majestic Stromboli. This handy grab-and-go food has been enjoyed by our customers for generations but little is known about this versatile meal.

The dough used in Cannoli Kitchen is a family recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation. Our Boca Raton Stromboli recipe is a well-guarded secret but today we will open the vault and share the mystery of one of our all-time favorite menu items.  Stromboli has minimal ingredients and can be made relatively quickly (not including the time it takes the dough to rise). What makes it so versatile is the fact that it can be customized with fillings making the flavor combinations only limited by your imagination. So, what exactly is a Stromboli?

What is in a Stromboli?

A Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various Italian cheeses (typically mozzarella) and usually Italian cold cuts (typically Italian meats such as salami, capocollo, and bresaola) or vegetables. The dough used is either Italian bread dough or pizza dough.

You can pretty much put anything you want in your Stromboli. The basics are starting with either pizza dough or bread dough and you stuff it with cheese, pizza sauce, and cold cut meats. At Cannoli Kitchen we offer 4 yummy variations of Stromboli including Meat (salami, ham, pepperoni, and mozzarella), Chicken, Philly Cheesesteak, and Sausage (with peppers and onions).

Where Did the Stromboli Come From?

Stromboli was invented by Italian-Americans in the United States in Philadelphia. … Unlike calzones, which are always stuffed and folded into a crescent shape, a Stromboli is typically rolled or folded into a cylinder, and may sometimes contain a thin layer of tomato sauce on the inside.

What is the difference between Stromboli and a Calzone?

A calzone is pretty much just a pizza folded in half, stuffed with your favorite pizza toppings, and baked. A calzone is rolled so it has layers of your crust and toppings in each and every slice.

How Long is Stromboli Baked?

Our Boca Raton Stromboli is baked in our 800-degree oven for about 15 minutes until it is golden brown and crispy on the outside and soft and melty on the inside. They don’t take long to bake up and the hungry crowds can grab them and go!

Stromboli makes a great on-the-go meal that can be eaten with one hand while you work with the other.
