This is a baked sandwich using frozen bread dough, meat, and cheese. My picky eaters love this for an easy weeknight meal and it's great served with a soup. My family fights over the leftovers!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir sausage until crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.

  • Pat out bread dough on an ungreased baking sheet, to 3/4-inch thickness. Lay salami, ham, and American cheese slices in center of dough. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, salt, pepper, and cooked sausage. Wrap dough to cover ingredients, pinching and sealing edges to prevent leakage; brush top with egg white.

  • Bake in preheated oven until dough is baked and lightly browned, 17 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

The meat and cheese can be changed to suit your tastes.

For a large crowd, I buy the package of 3 bread loaves and triple all ingredients.

Serve with marinara sauce for dipping, or enjoy as is.

Tried the recipe for the first time. Only thing I did different was add pepperoni to it and just used mozzarella instead of American cheese. It got rave reviews from my husband and son. We took some over to the neighbors who also loved it and asked for the recipe! Definitely a keeper! Read More

I'm from the Northeast and we like to add shredded lettuce and tomato to our stromboli ingredients before baking. It's actually the best-tasting stromboli ever! This is a good recipe. I don't like American cheese so I used shredded mozzarella and provolone. Also I make my own dough from scratch and serve this with a side of marinara sauce for dipping. Delicious. Read More

a little scared to make this since it didn't have many reviews but it was actually super easy and good! everybody loved it. i didn't use the sausage which was optional and kept thinking i should serve this with condiments but it didn't need any. consider this recipe as a canvas - add whatever meats/cheeses you like and it's still going to be beautiful!

Im commentig on this just too add my additions. Ive been searching for a pinnable recipe to match the one I do with the frozen bread dough. Like the others, I like an Italian version with the pastrami, salami, ham and pepperoni. Mozz cheese and banana peppers. The frozen dough is so easy to usr,I roll it up like a jelly roll cut slits in it and bake at 350 for 30 min. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Overall very good. The egg white and Parmesan cheese on top made it taste almost like a pretzel bread. Next time we will probably substitute pepperoni for the ham and add a little bit of Alfredo for some extra moisture to balance out the crunchy shell. --UPDATE-- After making this countless times Hubby and I finally have figured out exactly what works for us. We always make extra too since the leftovers are outstanding. I prefer to fill mine with shredded mozzarella salami and turkey pepperoni. Hubby fills his with shredded mozzarella salami pepperoni and Italian chicken sausage. Really you can't mess this up and you can make it however you want. Read More

While this recipe is not a low calorie recipe it is no where near the 1700 calories per serving that they are posting. I did the calculations per ingredient and it's still high at around 850 calories but not 1700 as they state. Read More

I've been making my own rendition of this for many years on XMAS Eve. I make a large pot of beef/veggie soup to go with it. I use all kinds of deli meats but my family really likes the salami/ham/pepperoni combo with mozzarella/swiss cheese. Whatever makes them happy makes me happy. A great sandwich for special occasions.

Try adding a honey mustard to the rolled out dough before you add the other toppings. Just spread it all over gives it a moist flavour. Been doing this for years and family loves it!!!! Read More
