This stromboli recipe is quick and easy enough for making appies, and also for a weeknight dinner.
What’s in a Stromboli?
Stromboli ingredients are very simple:
- The pizza crust – I’ve used refrigerated pizza dough here to make this an easy weeknight meal that is ready in 30 minutes, but feel free to make your own pizza dough if you prefer!
- The sauce – choose a good one that you like, and be sure to serve extra on the side for dunking! I prefer to use my homemade easy marinara sauce, but I often use store-bought for this recipe.
- Toppings – I keep these basic (and family-friendly) using salami, pepperoni, and ham as well as a good covering of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan. You can really do anything you want for stromboli filling ideas! Mix things up and go Hawaiian, BBQ Chicken or Chicken Alfredo if you’re feeling adventurous.
This stromboli recipe is super easy to make. Simply:
- Roll out pizza dough
- Add cheese and toppings
- Roll stromboli into a log
- Brush with egg wash
Follow This Method
Start out by spreading your pizza dough out into a rectangle on a baking sheet. 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.
Spread pizza sauce over most of the dough, leaving a 3 inch border. I use Prego marinara because it’s waaay cheaper than a teeny tiny bottle of actual pizza sauce.
Grate some cheese
And sprinkle half over top of the sauce. Keep that plain, sauce-less dough alone! No touchy!
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.
Sprinkle the last of the cheese over top of the meat and that’s the filling!
Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk it up.
Fold up the two shorter sides about an inch and brush these little flaps with egg too
Now roll that baby up as tight as you can! You want to end up with that strip of plain dough on the bottom of this whole stromboli.
Bake this bad boy 8-10 minutes or until it looks golden and bubbly
Wait a few minutes before you slice and serve. And beware of all that raging ooey gooey cheese. Right out of the oven it’s hotter than the fires of hell. So, watch yourself. Serve with extra sauce if you feel so inclined. It’s about at this time people start worshiping the ground you walk on because these are so dawg-on good.
