Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, typically mozzarella, Italian meats such as salami, capicola and bresaola or vegetables. The dough traditionally used is Italian bread dough.
At other establishments, a stromboli is made with a square shaped pizza dough that can be topped with any pizza toppings and is then rolled into a log and baked.
There are some theories regarding the origin of using the name stromboli for food in the United States. Romano's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria claims to have originated it in 1950 in Essington, Tinicum Township, just outside of Philadelphia, by Nazzareno Romano. According to Romano, a friend suggested he name it after the then recently released movie, Stromboli.
Another claim is that a stromboli sandwich was invented in 1954 by Mike Aquino at Mike's Burger Royale in Spokane, Washington. Aquino is also supposed to have named the sandwich after the movie.[unreliable source?]
