“Regular” Stromboli

Pepperoni, Salami, Ham, Mozzarella Cheese and Homemade Sauce

The stromboli is an Italian-American creation and type of turnover with its roots in the wonderful world of pizzacraft.

“Stromboli” is actually a small island near Sicily known for being a stratevolcano in constant eruption with a small population of less than 1000 residents; however, the name’s origin is actually more related to the 1950 Ingrid Bergman movie “Stromboli” than the volcanic island itself.

According to the legend, a scandal in the news with the married actress during the making of “Stromboli” led to an off-the-cuff naming of this new “sandwich” by Romano’s Restaurant in Essington, PA (near Philadelphia). Much like its sister the “pizza” the Stromboli is an American mutt that became trendy long ago with influence from Italian cuisine.

    First, let me say that Johnny’s Pizza is one of our favorite local Italian restaurants in the Montgomery County area. We have been there on many occasions, and each time the food has been fresh and delicious. Tonight, the food was great.
