Mozzarella Ham Stromboli

"The original recipe for this savory bread called for salami, but I use ham instead," writes Janice Brightwell of Jeffersonville, Indiana. "People are always amazed that it only takes about 15 minutes to assemble. I usually serve it with tomato soup."

    I made this and will definitely make it again. I served it as an appetizer but I am going to make it again as a weeknight dinner and add a salad. It was easy, quick and tasty. I also used pizza dough because I had some issues rolling out the french Thank you for sharing

    This is great when served with tomato soup! It is a bit dry without the soup since it has no sauce in it.

    Simple and really good. I used a tube of pizza dough instead of the french loaf so I didn't even have to bother rolling anything out. Yum!

    This is a great aternative to pizza night. I have made it with different meats and cheeses and it works well with all. I serve with marinara for dipping.

    Really quick and easy and so delicious. Used with my favorite bread machine pizza dough recipe. Will definately experiment with different meat and cheese combinations next time!
