Do you know how to make Stromboli? With this step-by-step Stromboli recipe, you’ll be an expert on making this pizza-inspired appetizer!

But First, What is Stromboli?

Now, do you know what Stromboli is? I was first introduced to this magnificent appetizer when I worked as a server at Boston Pizza. They had these on the menu {along with these} and I became obsessed with them. SO yummy and one of the most popular items on the menu.

In a nutshell, stromboli is basically a pizza roll. You roll the pizza dough out into a rectangle, cover with sauce, top with meat and cheese, roll up, cut in some slats, bake and serve. Super simple and totally do-able for the home cook! When you make these, people will think you’re a rock star because they are so good.

Honestly, this is just a different way to eat pizza. People go nuts over this because it’s something they don’t see every day. Pizza is just plain ol’ pizza. But stromboli! Well, you just became 16 times cooler because you served this instead of pizza at your Superbowl party. Shall we make some? Okay!

Stromboli Recipe Ingredients

For this stromboli recipe, I used a more traditional set of ingredients. Salami, ham, mozzarella, and parmesan!

However, just like pizza, you can customize it to your liking. Spinach, artichoke, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, chicken, pepperoni, and sausage are all different ingredients you can experiment with!

How to Make Stromboli

With these step-by-step photos, this recipe is super easy to make. So for full details, including increments, on how to make this stromboli recipe, see the recipe card down below!

  1. Start out by spreading your pizza dough out into a rectangle on a baking sheet. I used my Fail-Proof Pizza Dough Recipe because it is in fact fail-proof. And I also used parchment paper because I didn’t want to have to clean my baking sheet after this hot mess was done baking. Lazy Mom’s unite! Feel free to use the straight-up pan.

  1. Spread pizza sauce over most of the dough, leaving a 3-inch border. I use Prego marinara because it’s way cheaper than a teeny tiny bottle of actual pizza sauce.

  1. Grate some cheese, please! And sprinkle half over the top of the sauce. Keep that plain, sauce-less dough alone! No touchy!

  1. Now fish around your fridge for some meat. I used my pepperoni up without realizing it so I used salami. Lay those slices out over the cheese.

  • Brush the plain strip of dough with the egg. Fold in the sides about an inch and brush them with egg. Roll up like a jelly roll lengthwise starting along the long edge of dough topped with all the fillings and ending with the plain strip of dough on the bottom of the roll.

  • Brush the entire stromboli with egg and gently cut slats in the top of the dough every 1-2 inches. Sprinkle parsley and cheese over top and bake in the lower third of the oven for8-10 minutes or until bubbly and golden.

Notes

If your stromboli burns before the inside is baked, your oven may run hot! Be sure to bake stromboli in the lower half of the oven for best results.
