One of a number of easy Stromboli recipes I enjoy. Easy and affordable, they are great dinner ideas during the busy week.
1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease a cookie sheet.
2. Unroll pizza dough; place on cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 14×10-inch rectangle.
3. In small bowl, mix chicken and wing sauce; spread down center of rectangle to within 1 inch of edges. Sprinkle with cheese.
4. Fold shorter sides of dough 1 inch over filling. Bring long sides of dough over filling, overlapping in center; pinch edge to seal.
5. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with celery sticks and blue-cheese dipping sauce if desired.
This is a nice fusion adaptation of two of my favorite foods, buffalo wings and Stromboli. Be sure to choose the Buffalo wing sauce that matches your heat-tolerance. If you don’t like your food to leave smoke trails out of your ears you might want to avoid the “hot” and “extra-hot” varieties.
Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, typically mozzarella, Italian meats such as salami, capicola and bresaola or vegetables. The dough traditionally used is Italian bread dough.
A Buffalo wing, Buffalo chicken wing, hot wing or wing, in the cuisine of the United States, is a chicken wing section (wingette or drumette) that is generally deep-fried, un-breaded and coated in a sauce of vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter in the kitchen. They are served hot, along with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing for dipping.
