Stromboli - Pizza Roll

Watching the Hairy Bikers  Bakeation has been a real pleasure - here's another of their lovely recipes - (slightly adapted)  ...............

Stromboli is a rolled-up pizza.
Oven: 190/200 deg.C : 375deg.F

3/4 cup warm water
1 tbls. sugar
1 tbl. oil
1 tbl. dry milk powder
2.1/4 cups of strong white flour (bread flour)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. active dried yeast

If you have a bread machine - make up the pizza dough according to instructions.
Otherwise -
Mix flour, dry milk powder, oil, sugar and salt.
Combine water and yeast and gradually add to flour mixture.
Blend well and  knead for 2-3 mins.
Sprinkle a little flour in a bowl - add dough and cover with klingfilm - leave to rise until doubled in size in a warm area.

approx. 1/2 lb. (250g) Italian hard salami - skin removed and diced
1/2 lb. ham - cut into shreds
1/4 cup red pepper - diced
2 tbl. tomato puree
clove of crushed garlic
1/4 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1 cup good Italian - or hard cheese - grated
1/2 lb. mozzarella
2 tbls. Parmesan grated
egg for eggwash
some cornmeal or semolina
You can really use any filling of choice - making a Veggie one too.

Lightly saute the first 6 ingredients in some olive oil - - taste - probably wont need extra salt but could add some black pepper
When the dough is completed, punch it down on a lightly floured surface and roll out to approx.14"x12"   rectangle.
Place the filling over one half (or 1/3) and leave an edge of about 1" all around.
Sprinkle the cheese over the filling.
Carefully roll up or fold over the dough, seal the ends, and make 2 or 3 slits on the top.
Sprinkle some cornmeal or semolina on a greased baking tray, and place roll on top. Brush with eggwash - (can add some water to the egg)
Bake for about 20-25 mins until top is golden brown, and leave to stand for about 5-10 mins. before cutting.

Lovely served with a dressed green salad.

Hi Jen - thanks for your lovely comment. I do sometimes put up photos of my dishes (or the odd drawing), but really just like posting the recipes. However, I browsed your website and your photos are lovely.
