|My before and after picture...virtually no difference|
My second Pinterest try this week was this pin on Pinterest from Lauren's Latest: a Stromboli. On the left is the picture from Lauren's Latest via Pinterest...my picture of my Stromboli is on the right.

I thought the kids would all love it because it was like pizza with a twist. I even used Boar's Head thin slice pepperoni in it. 2 out of 3 kids liked it. My oldest said, "If you really feel like you need to make it or you'll just die, I 'll eat it, but it wouldn't be my first choice." Please son, be a little more honest, will you? It was his Mighty fine dinner, Miss Betty moment. I will make it again because the bread, which is Lauren's Fail Proof Pizza Dough recipe is terrific. It is so easy to make and so easy to work with. I used a mixture of whole wheat and white flour and olive oil. I think the problem with the recipe was that even though you rolled the dough tightly, the dough in the middle just melted into the toppings which helped make the insides super gooey and hard to eat. There also was too much cheese involved. I love cheese but I agree with my oldest son that it seemed like he was eating a brick of melted cheese...hard to eat and hard to swallow. So, I will make the crust again, but I will make it into calzones or smaller pizza pockets rather than the single big Stromboli.
So the dough gets 4 spoons
The Stromboli itself , only 2 and a half spoons.
Wonder what I'll try next?
