Best Stromboli in Pennsylvania (2018)


The origins of stromboli aren’t clear, but the turnover made with pizza dough and typically filled with mozzarella, Italian meats, vegetables and other pizza ingredients was likely invented by either Italian immigrants or Italian-Americans in Philadelphia. Similar to a calzone, stromboli is usually made by rolling out pizza dough, adding toppings, rolling it into a log and baking it, though some pizzerias make it by folding dough in half much like the crescent-shaped calzone.
