Stromboli Recipe

Stromboli is a great alternative to pizza when you want something a little different, or if you need to wrap it up and take it to go! A perfect picnic alternative to the regular sandwich fare. If you wrap them up in tin foil they will stay hot for quite a while too!Stromboli-Recipe_ketmhc

With a batch of pre-risen pizza dough, roll out a large rectangle. Spread the toppings out over all of it but about an inch and a half of each edge. Fold the two side edges over the toppings a bit, and then starting from the side closest to you, roll the stromboli up. Seal the edges by lightly wetting with water and pinching shut, forming a seam.

Place it on a baking sheet, cover, and let rise for about 30 minutes in a warm, non-drafty place. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and fully cooked on the inside.

Stromboli Recipe

Yields 2 loaves

  • 1 (.25 oz) package active dry yeast
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour


  • The quantities below are for 1 Stromboli. Double the amount if you want to make both loaves.
  • 1/4 lb thinly sliced ham
  • 1/4 lb reduced fat pepperoni
  • Dried basil
  • Dried oregano
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt and 2 cups flour; fitted with the paddle attachment, beat until smooth. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. Switching to the dough hook attachment, knead dough on low speed until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll one portion into a 15 x 12-inch rectangle. (I froze the second portion for a later date.) Arrange ham slices lengthwise down half of rectangle. Place pepperoni on top. Sprinkle with a little bit of basil and oregano. Arrange provolone slices over the top and then add the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with a little more basil and oregano. Fold plain half of dough over filling and seal ends well. Brush with oil; sprinkle with oregano.
  3. Bake on a baking sheet at 400°F for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; cut into 1-inch slices.
