Tried a Stromboli after reading this....
« on: May 30, 2010, 09:05:19 PM »
I decided to make a Stromboli after reading this thread.

http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3037.msg25786.html#msg25786

I do make Stromboli, but make them more like a Calzone.  The ones I make are half moon shaped and the dough is just folded over.

I also wanted to try out the cheese that Foremost Farms had sent me.  The cheese was 1950 127 Brand.  It was a three cheese blend of part-skim mozzarella, provolone, and white cheddar. 

The fillings use in the Stromboli were the cheese mentioned above, Pepperoni, Genoa Salami and Mortadella.

Ronzo,

Thanks for the compliment.  :) Mine didn't look half as good as some of the stromboli did at the other thread.  That thread was an inspiration for me to try this stromboli today, with frozen dough.

The thing I loved the most about it? You used Mortadella in it. You made me cry with that.  :-D

Ronzo,

LOL..I really love Mortadella too, but don't buy it often.  Do you use Mortadella in your pies?

Norma,

There is a pizzeria called Great Lake that has achieved great notoriety and acclaim for its mortadella pizza: http://www.gq.com/food-travel/alan-richman/200905/pizza-american-pie-25-best?currentPage=3.

Peter,

That was an interesting article.  I didn't know there was a pizza place that served Mortadella on their pies. That is why I asked Ron, if he used it on pies.  I looked on the web for a picture of the Mortadella pizza and it does look delicious.  When I used it before, I just used it for making Italian sub's.  I also thought it was interesting that the Mortadella was mentioned in the 14 century in Italy.  Seems the Moradella was around for a long time, before I discovered it.  I like how the name Mortadella came about, from the use of a mortar & pestle. 

My husband had worked for butchers, in addition to the market at Root's for many years. He taught me about many cuts of meat. The butchers he worked for killed their own animals and made hot dogs, sausage, and many kinds of lunch meats.  When he told me all the things that went into hot dogs and lunch meats, it almost made me not want to eat them again. When he told me how they used sticky meat. then added many spices and cured the lunch meats, I almost couldn't believe what went into those lunch meats.  :o  In our area, there are lunch meats called sweet bologna and Lebanon bologna. They also have many spices added and many people that have lived in our area, can't get these products if they don't live around here. 

I makes me wonder how the older Italians used to make their Mortadella.  ::)

Thanks for the link,

Norma

Nice job Norma  ;D

Ron,

You have me cracking up laughing, again.  :-D  I never thought of using it on a pie.  I think after looking at the pictures of the mortadella pizza, it is also something I want to try. 

Maybe we will have everyone drooling for a Mortadella Pizza, from the old Roman days.  :pizza:  :-D

Norma, the most 'exotic' meat I've used on my pies has been large, thin slices of Genoa salami and proscuitto. I think I'm going to remedy that next time I make pizza. I'm thinking mortadella is in my future, and maybe even some pancetta.

I'm getting fatter just thinking about it.

Ron,

I have tried the pancetta on a pizza and it was great in my opinion.  I wish I could try some real mortadella from Italy.  The mortadella I used only had 6 grams of fat, so I don't think it will make you fat.   :-D
