I had never even heard of one before and I tried out her recipe as I had some vegetarians for dinner. It was absolutely delicious! Then I started to think. What if you don't have time to make the dough or have all the different ingredients? Could I make a store cupboard version as an emergency meal?  For my Simple Stromboli I use shop bought  rectangular pizza dough, tomato puree, cheese, ham and peppers, as they were in the fridge, but some fried onions or mushrooms would work.

  1. OMG this looks amazing and so easy. We have a house full and a gîte full of friends at the moment, our mealtimes seem to swell to 12+ every day. I am making this for lunch tomorrow with some salad from the garden. Looks divine, as always a big thank you xx

    1. Thanks Mimi. I think puff would work well too or even Brioche dough. What I have found though, is that you don’t want the fillings too wet, like tomato or you get a soggy bottom!

  2. I had no idea how “stromboli” and “simple” could occupy the same sentence. You’ve actually gone and made it easy—amazing! The use of store-bought pizza dough is a stroke of genius. I also love the idea of using up leftover chicken in stromboli. My hubster—pizza and stromboli freak that he is—will absolutely love this!

    1. Thanks so much Michelle. It’s always good to have something you can throw together with ingredients that are normally in the fridge as, with the best will in the world, some days are just too busy!
