    We did our first try doing strombolis in the brick oven this evening, it was a success! Sauce, ham, provolone, mozzarella, garlic, Italian seasoning, pepperoni and olive oil. We still have a few things to do to perfect them and make them "our own", but they turned out great first a first try. Oven temps were 550°F on the floor and 850°F on the ceiling, they cooked nicely in around 5 mins with a few spins on the turning peel....

    Divided the coals to either side in the sideways arch, brushed the floor and she's ready to go.....

    Second boli was even better, rolled and pinched the edges better, added more cheese and sauce too.

    So you should have done a weigh-in before outdoor oven and like 1 yr later! Those things look incredible!!

    Those look awesome! And I bet it felt good to get that oven fired up and cooking.

    If you want to try a really good jared sauce, look for Rao’s. It’s a bit spendy, but excellent. My wife and I usually make our own sauces (pasta, pizza) but Rao’s comes close to homemade.

    Those look delicious. Strombolis are my favorite form of pizza, and I love pizza.

    Great oven pictures. So...what's the difference between a stromboli and a calzone?
