I know..sounds so stupid. but is it just sort of like a pizza, but folded? sorry...this must sound silly. I said I'd make it..have pizza dough rising. uh..have no clue.
That's what it was like where I grew up, too. There was this one pizza place that served the BEST stromboli that I think about to this day... I don't even want to make it myself because there is no way it could live up to the memory. *drool*Around here, we have calzones and strombolis. Calzones have ricotta inside (along with mozzarella and ham, traditionally), whereas a stromboli does not have ricotta, just mozzarella and other stuff (pepperoni, sausage, spinach, etc.).
Being a native Long Islander, I would have told her to step out of the deli and head to the local pizza place, and she would have found some. Sheesh! I detest people like that.That's what it was like where I grew up, too. There was this one pizza place that served the BEST stromboli that I think about to this day...

Funny story...my freshman year roommate was from Long Island, NY, and was practically the embodiment of all things people hate about New Yorkers. When I told her about this stromboli, she didn't believe me. I think she thought I was lying or something! She said (in her thick ny accent) "I worked in a New York City deli for 2 years. If *I* haven't heard of it, it doesn't exist"
She was't my roommate for long....
Yep, I also serve my sauce on the side but I don't fry mine but bake them in the oven too. Here they are also called Stromboli. I also have bread dough & have been going to make them up. Must be we are all in the same mood.
