As soon as I got home from Korea, all I wanted to do was make up for the baked meals I’d missed out on over the year. When I stumbled upon a crazy lunchmeat sale at the grocery store, stromboli instantly came to mind, and let me just say, this recipe was bangin’. After I made it, my whole family was pleased, which is a rarity.

The recipe for the dough came from here, and the actually stromboli was a variation of this recipe.
