Remember awhile ago when I made stromboli? And it was something of a fail? Let me refresh your memory. Well, I put on my big girl panties, and I tried again. And it worked!
Some key things we did differently than the last attempt:
- Avoided over stuffing. It’s tempting to pile on the toppings like you would for a pizza. Don’t give in. A little goes a long way in the toppings realm.
- Left a 3 inch border for rolling. It helps. Just do it.
- Had better dough to begin with. My new trick for raising dough is this–set your oven to warm, put a dish of warm water on the bottom rack of the oven, and the bread in a covered bowl above it. Once the oven preheats (to warm), turn the oven off. This creates a lovely little warm and humid place for dough to rise. Especially if your house is dry, this is a great way to go!
