Well done, bluesman!  That looks awesome.  Do you use the Lehmann dough formulation for that or something else?

Looks great, Ron!  I usually do it like a turn over myself (can fit more stuff in it).  We're on a good for you food diet lately, so I doubt I will be posting any bread or pizza type stuff :'(

Thanks Cap.

Actually some claim the origin is traced to Spokane, Washington as noted by Wapedia below.

Stromboli is reported to have originated in 1950 in Essington, Tinicum Township just outside of Philadelphia, at Romano's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria, by Nazzareno Romano. There, William Schofield supposedly gave it the name, after the movie Stromboli, starring Ingrid Bergman. [1] Other sources claim the stromboli was the brainchild of Mike Aquino, Sr. and that he created it in Spokane, Washington in 1954. [2] .

Yes. I used the Lehmann dough formulation and it turned out fantastic!  8)

It's funny...I can't find one iota of info. that verifies Mike Aquino, Sr. is the creator of the stromboli...other than he said...she said...you said.

I guess one can beleive what they want. I do know for a fact that Romano's was making them in the 50's and continue to make them today. So there you have it Cap.  8)

Made another NY-style pepperoni pizza tonight.  I used a 50/50 blend of Trader Joe's whole-milk and part-skim mozzarella cheeses.  I also added about .50 oz of parmigiano-reggiano cheese.  It was easily the best cheese I've used and probably the best NY-style pizza I've made (I've made probably made 10-11 of them so far).

Great job Matt.

I think I've asked you this before on another channel, but what temp do you preheat your oven and for how long?

Also...approx. how long do you bake the pie? Do you put the pizza on the bottom rack of oven, on a screen first screen, then stone?

Looks delicious!  8)

Thanks bluesman!

My apologies if you asked me before and I didn't respond.  I preheat my oven to 550 (although I don't have an oven thermometer, so I've never determined if the oven actually gets up to 550).  I preheat for one hour from the time the oven actually gets to 550.  It usually takes about 25 minutes for my oven to get up to that temp.

I bake the pie for approximately 8 minutes.  I start with the pizza on a 16" screen in the upper half of the oven until the cheese just begins to bubble (which is usually about 4 minutes into cooking).  Then, I rotate the pizza 180 degrees (to promote even cooking) and slide it off the screen onto the stone, which is on the bottom most rack of the oven.  When the bottom of the pizza is done to my liking (usually after about 3-4 minutes), I turn on the broiler and move the pizza back up to the upper rack for another minute or so, or until the rim is nicely browned and the cheese is nicely melted.

I have to say, tonight was the first time I really nailed my process.  Now I want to start getting more creative with toppings.

Good job, Matt.  It looks perfect!  I preheat to 500 myself and do the whole bake on a stone.  Your crust looks great!  I am assuming it's crispy and chewy from the look of it.
