Stromboli Recipe

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

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!

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.



  1. 1 batch pizza dough
  2. toppings & cheese of your choosing
  3. dipping sauce
  4. water


Roll dough out on a well floured surface into a long rectangle. Place toppings inside, leaving the edges free of topping. Lightly wet edges.

Fold the side edges slightly over the toppings. Start from the side closest to you, and gently roll the dough, keeping the toppings inside. (No sauce in this one!) When you are done rolling, gently pinch and smoosh the edges to form a seal. If necessary, use a bit more water on your fingers to help the dough seal.

Place on a baking sheet and let rise, covered, for 20-30 minutes. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and fully cooked.
