Reviews for Ground Beef and Pepperoni Stromboli
"Buy fresh pizza dough from pizza parlor. We get it for $2. MUCH better than frozen bread dough.My husband is the king of pepperoni making."
"Delicious! Variations of this recipe are endless! The only complaint I have was the bread dough was a pain in the butt to roll out to the rectangle. My husband ended up taking pity on me and did it. It was well worth the effort though because we both loved it. Perfect snack/meal while watching football!"
"Husband usually doesn't eat leftovers, but the next day when i got in the fridge, guess what was gone."
"Everybody loved this recipe! I did make a few changes the second time I made it. I only thawed the bread dough, and did not let it rise. I thought it was easier to work with, then. Also, I only used 1 egg and half of the stated amount of olive oil, and had plenty for both loaves. Thanks!"
"i've never made this exact recipe but have made a stromboli using the pillsbury crusty french loaf. you just unroll it, top it, roll it back up and back according to the packing. i usually make a lunchmeat version with ham, turkey, bacon, and cheese, but this looks tasty and will try this next time i make stromboli!"
"LOVE IT!!!! SELOGY"
"I do this with italian sausage and spinach, and a warm marinara sauce for dipping."
"We've made this several times and each time it's been a huge success! We've also made a few variations - mexican (with taco meat), vegeterian, italian sausage, etc. Yummy!"
"This would be so good serving it with a Pizza Sauce to dunk it in. We used to purchase Strombolis at a restaurant and that is the way they served it."
