The story behind the name ‘stromboli’ is very interesting. Romano's Italian restaurant and pizzeria assert to have first utilized the name ‘stromboli’ in 1950 in Essington, Pennsylvania, right outside Philadelphia. The pizzeria owner had explored different avenues regarding "pizza imbottito" (stuffed pizza) and included ham, cotechino salame, cheddar and peppers stuffed in a bread dough pocket.
