Strombolis! A Delicious Italian Sandwich The Whole Family Will Enjoy Making!

My very best friend in the whole wide world (aka BFF, confidant & partner in crime) makes Strombolis to tempt even the more finicky of palate!  You see her family actually owned an Italian restaurant in Grand Rapids Michigan back in the 80's and this classic recipe was one their customer favorites!   My whole family loves to join in the fun of rolling dough and piling on yummy toppings.
