Jack’s Stromboli

I named this after Jack, simply because it’s such a guy type of thing to love. And he loves it.FullSizeRender

1 (16-ounce) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed

1/4 pound, thinly sliced ham

1/4 pound sliced hard salami

1/2 t dried basil, divided

1/2 t dried oregano, divided

3 ounces sliced provolone cheese

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

2 T butter, melted

1 t cornmeal

Place bread dough on a lightly greased baking sheet. Pat, roll out, to a 15×10 in rectangle. Arrange ham slices lengthwise down the center; place salami on top. Sprinkle with 1/4 t basil and 1/4 t oregano. Arrange provolone cheese over herbs, and top with mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with remaining herbs.

Moisten all edges of dough with a little bit of water. Bring each long edge of dough to center; press edges together securely to seal. Seal ends.

Brush dough with 1 T butter. Sprinkle with cornmeal, and carefully invert. Brush top with remaining butter. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until brown on top. Cut with a serrated knife.
