Ham and Cheese Stromboli ( JO Pizza Dough)
When i was still looking for a Jamie Oliver's recipe to participate in my buddy, Zoe's event, Cook Like A Star, i came upon Jeannie's post on her Dates Bread Loaf using JO's pizza dough recipe. How yummy that looks and so fluffy by using a pizza dough and as i read further, i understand that the dough can be stored in fridge or freezer after making its first proof meaning that we dont have to shape or prebake the crust first, just dump the dough for refrigeration for later use. I like that because that really saves time, i want to make a few and keep in my fridge. I made half of the JO's original recipe and divided that into 4 separate doughs. This is what i came up with using one portion of the dough, after sits overnight in the fridge..a Ham Stromboli, together with a couple more of ingredients like sundried tomatoes, capsicum and cheese.
Jamie Oliver's Pizza Dough Recipe ( from here )
makes 4 portions, each portion about 6.6oz after proof
500gms bread flour /00 flour ( i used 00 flour)
1.5 tbsp sea salt
7gm of instant yeast ( i used 10gm)
1/2 tbsp caster sugar
2tbsps extra virgin olive oil
325ml lukewarm water
1.In a jug, mix the olive oil, sugar and yeast into water and leave for a few minutes.
2.In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt using a fork to stir to mix, then attach the dough hook and let it run on low speed. Slowly pour in the yeast mixture till the everything comes to a rough dough and continue beating till the dough is smooth. I let them beat on medium speed for about 8 minutes.
3.Remove the dough and transfer it to a lightly floured surface, shape them into a ball and let it proof in a big bowl till double its size. After proofing, you can use the dough immediately or store them in fridge or freezer ( in clingwrap) until required.
Ham and Cheese Stromboli ( idea from BHG magazine )
4 pieces of ham
5 pieces of sundried tomatoes ( cut into small pieces)
a small portion of red or green capsicum, chopped into pieces
some mozarella cheese, shredded
1.Preheat oven to 190C, lined your baking tray and sprinkle some cornmeal
2.Dust the working surface with some flour and rolling pin, roll out the dough into a rectangle shape, 9" X6.5"
Arrange ham slices on dough, leaving about 1/2 inch on border, sprinkle with some cheese, follow by sundried tomatoes and capsicum , sprinkle some black pepper and another layer of remaining cheese. Starting from the long side of the dough, roll them up into a log, pinch the ends to seal.
3.Place loaf, seam side down onto the baking tray, brush with egg. Using a sharp knife, cut slits on top for steam to escape, bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting to serve.
