Stromboli Recipe from

Stromboli is traditionally made with Italian bread dough, but I fell in love with the stromboli served at a pizza restaurant we love. There, they make their stromboli using pizza dough, which my son prefers more than the bread version. So, now, in our house, this is how we make our stromboli, too!

How to Make Stromboli Recipe

I begin with pizza dough. For this, I love to use my homemade pizza dough recipe and like to keep a stash of it in my freezer. I just let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight. But you can also use a pre-made pizza dough from your grocery store deli.

Then, I divide the dough in half, press it out like I’m making a pizza, fill it up, roll it, making sure to fully enclose all of the ingredients and bake it until it lightly browns.

Then, I slather them down with my special little bread topping, return them to the oven for just a bit and voila! Once they have cooled a little bit, I slice them into large slices and watch them be devoured! If you have hungry fellas around your house or are looking for an easy as can be recipe to serve while watching the game at home or tailgating, let me tell you, this is it!

  • 1 pizza dough
  • 1/2 pound italian sausage
  • 1/2 medium onion sliced
  • 2 clove garlics minced
  • 1 red pepper sliced thinly
  • 1 green pepper sliced thinly
  • 1 jalapeno pepper deseeded and sliced thinly

For the Topping

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 clove garlic minced

  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide pizza dough in half and spread out on parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Add sausage to skillet over medium heat. Break apart with a wooden spoon and stir in onion, garlic, and all peppers. Cook until the sausage has browned and cooked throughout and the vegetables are tender. Remove from heat.
  • Spoon half of sausage mixture, draining off as much of the excess drippings as possible, on one dough and the remaining on the second dough. Add ham, pepperoni, cheeses, and spinach to the sausage mixture and then roll the dough into a cylinder. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from the oven. Mix melted butter and minced garlic together and brush on top of the stromboli.

  1. I was first introduced to this magnificent appetizer when I worked as a server at Boston Pizza. They had these on the menu and I became obsessed with them. Sooo yummy and one of the most popular items on the menu! 😀

  2. This looks so incredibly yummy! I love stromboli! And hey, no shame in using store bought dough! It’s one of my favorite shortcuts too!

  3. Wow, looks delicious! I have a quick question if you have a second to answer. Do you spread the toppings around the whole crust before rolling it up, or do you bunch all the toppings together in a heap and roll the dough around them? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Angie,
      I just layer my toppings and then roll the dough around them, making sure that the dough is securely closed so that when it bakes it all stays inside. I hope that helps! 🙂

    1. I think it will be fine to make the day before and refrigerate until baking. If you freeze them, just let them thaw completely in the fridge before you bake. Enjoy them, Marianne! Thanks!
