The stromboli that I make uses pre-made pizza dough. But bread dough can be used as well. Kids love this pizza creation and adults love the grown-up pizza creation. Also, I always have left-over mixture, which I use the following day with Spaghetti.

I've been making this for years. I've read a lot of reviews where people complained the dough was soggy. The key is to put in a layer of cheese, then your toppings, a spoonful of sauce, then more cheese. The cheese melts and makes a barrier for the sauce. Also, be careful not to get the sauce near the edges or the dough won't seal! Read More

This turned out very well. However, I would note that (at least in my oven at 400) 30 minutes is too long. 20 minutes did it for ours. I didn't like the crust but, of course, that is to be blamed on the brand of crust I chose (a generic store brand - you live and you learn) and not the recipe itself. While eating it, I thought that instead of brushing the stomboli with butter, perhaps garlic butter might have given the crust more flavor. Regardless, this is a great recipe. The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination - adding whatever fillings you like. It was a top notch recipe for a family favorite! Enjoy! Read More

I decided to make my own dough using my bread maker. It was really easy. To make the dough use: 3/4 c. lukewarm water 1 tbl. oil 2 1/4 c. whole wheat flour 1/2 tsp. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt and 2 tblsp. yeast. Use the dough cycle and voila! I also added 1/2 tsp. each of fresh oregano basil and rosemary to the dough to add a little extra kick. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! This is definitely a keeper!! Read More

Great Recipe! Whenever I use pepperoni in a recipe I line a plate with 2 papertowels, lay the pepperoni in a single layer, place another papertowel on top and microwave for 1 minute and 10 seconds, you will be happy with all the grease you are NOT eating! Just wanted to share.... Read More

I made stromboli from scratch only one other time and never did it again because it was too much trouble for a weeknight meal. I love this recipie because it's so easy to do and tastes great. I made mine even easier to do by just lining the dough with pepperoni green pepper onions and topping it off with sauce and cheese. The family loved it! The veggies were fork tender but still had a little crispness to it. Thanks Jessica for a great new recipie! Read More

GREAT NEW RECIPE!! I used 1 lb of mild Italian sausage a 1/2 cup more pizza sauce and some cheddar cheese in addition to the moz. I had alot of extra meat/sauce mix and I'm pretty sure that if I would have had the pizza dough available I could have made two. I might try that next time...because we all agree this should be made again. Thanks so much Jessica! It's a neat spin-off from your typical pizza! Read More

This recipe was delicious quick and a simple way of getting veggies into your kids (& hubby for that matter!:)). Instead of making one giant stromboli I split the pizza dough into 4 pieces and made smaller versions. I used 6 oz of fresh mushrooms but the same proportions of everything else and found that I had at least a cup of leftover filling that I used w/ pasta the next day. Also I found that 1/4 c butter is a LOT. I used 2 tbs and that was plenty to saturate & glaze the strombolis. THey were just as yummy reheated in the oven the next day! Read More

this was great. I used olive oil and mixed garlic powder and Italian seasoning. I brushed that on the inside and outside of the Stromboli. Read More
