Have you ever had stromboli? It’s very similar to a calzone but the dough and filling is rolled up like a cinnamon roll. After it bakes, it is sliced and dipped into marinara sauce. They are so much fun to make and the filling possibilities are endless! My favorite one to make is Antipasto Stromboli and I recently made it on Good Things Utah. I love this version because who doesn’t love an antipasto salad? Ham, salami, sopressata, artichokes, olives, pepperonicinis, mozzarella…there’s just so many amazing flavors. Watch my TV segment HERE to see how easy it is to make!
Antipasto Stromboli makes a delicious, hearty appetizer and it also works great for a quick dinner. I love to make 2-3 of them for my family and make each one a little different depending on tastes. My husband and son love a spicy one with lots of pickled peppers and spicy salami.
Other Appetizer Ideas for NYE
Antipasto Stromboli would be perfect for New Year’s! Every year, we make lots of appetizers whether we are having a party or it’s just the five of us. I’ll definitely be making this again! Happy New Year!
Here are some other appetizer ideas found here on my blog:
- 1 tube ready-made pizza dough (13.8 oz)
- 8 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- 6 thin slices deli ham
- 3-4 oz salami, pepperoni, or sopressatta (any thinly sliced Italian meat)
- 1/4 cup sliced pepperoncini peppers
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan
- Marinara sauce, for dipping
Other optional ingredients:
- Sliced black or green olives
- Chopped marinated artichoke hearts
- Sliced roasted red peppers
- Fresh herbs-basil, oregano, or parsley
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Melt butter and stir in garlic. Set aside but keep warm and melted.
- Unroll pizza dough and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet (or line with non-stick foil or use cooking spray). Press out dough with hands to form a 12×8 rectangle.
- Brush half of melted garlic butter on the dough. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese then layer the meats over the dough evenly. Next, sprinkle with pepperoncini (and any other optional ingredients of your choosing).
- Roll up the dough (like cinnamon rolls) and pinch edges to seal. Make sure seam side is down.
- Brush with remaining melted garlic butter, then sprinkle with Italian seasoning and parmesan. Cut several 2-inch slits along the top.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then cut into slices. Serve with warm marinara sauce.
