Instructions
Pizza Dough
  1. Add bread flour, salt and yeast to bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade. Pulse 5 times to combine. Add olive oil and water. Process until a rough ball forms, around 30 seconds. Let rest for 2 minutes. Process an additional 30 seconds. Transfer to lightly floured surface; knead by hand to form a smooth, round ball. Place in a large, lightly greased bowl; cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, about 1-1/2 hours. (Alternatively, the dough can be refrigerated for at least 8 hours or up to 16 hours.) Yield: 16 ounces of pizza dough.

Mustard Cream Sauce
  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Whisk in the mustard and pepper and continue to cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Bring mixture to a boil, whisking constantly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce is thickened and reduced to about 3/4 cups, about 20 minutes. Yield: 3/4 cup.

Chula's Expert Tips
  1. Rather than making your own pizza dough, you can use store-bought pizza dough. This dough, however, rolls out very nicely.
  2. When making this dough, it's important to use cold water. The reason is that the speedy revolutions of the steel blade in the food processor generate a fair amount of heat. If the dough becomes too heated, it could kill the yeast. It's also important to use filtered water. The reason is that tap water contains chlorine which can retard the growth of the yeast or even kill the yeast.
  3. It's best to shred the Mozzarella yourself. The already shredded Mozzarella contains a coating that impacts the taste.
  4. Chicken Cordon Bleu Stromboli can be made ahead of time. Allow it to cool, wrap in aluminum foil and store in the refrigerator for several days, or in the freezer for up to a month. Heat in a preheated 350°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. If heating from the freezer, add 5 minutes. Leftovers can be stored and reheated in the same manner.
