Easy, Delicious Stromboli

Easy, Delicious Stromboli

I love an easy, delicious recipe; who doesn’t? One of my absolute favorite foods is stromboli. Bread, good; cheese, good; ham, good. What isn’t there to love about an easy, delicious stromboli?! In this post, I am going to teach you my recipe!

After getting not one, BUT 2, bad stromboli’s at my favorite local pizza place (YUCK), I decided it was time to learn how to make my own.

I could have easily made my own crust (and sometimes I do with self-rising flour and Greek yogurt), but this time I used Mrs. Rhodes frozen bread, thawed of course. You must check this out!

Stromboli Ingredients

  • 1 thawed and raised loaf of Mrs. Rhodes frozen bread
  • 4-5 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 tsp. each :garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil
  • 1 jar of pizza sauce
  • pepperoni
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • mild pepper rings
  • deli chipped ham
  • any other topping you enjoy: salami, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, olives, etc.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. First, lightly flour your counter top or table and roll out the bread dough to be about 1/4″ thick. (A great tip is to  lightly flour parchment paper because then it can be transferred directly to your baking sheet and into the oven).
  3. Lightly brush melted butter over the dough, avoiding the edges. (A thin layer of butter works best).
  4. Next, sprinkle the buttered dough with 1 teaspoon each: garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil.
  5. Add about 1/3 cup of pizza sauce to dough and spread, again staying 1/2″ off the edge of the stromboli so the edges can adhere to each other when you fold it. (You don’t want a ton of sauce or the stromboli will be too wet).
  6. After that, add your toppings to half of the stromboli (length-wise). I love shredded fresh mozzarella (about 1 cup), pepperoni, ham, and mild pepper rings in mine. But go crazy! Add whatever makes your belly sing.
  7. Then, fold the stromboli in half, length-wise, and press the edges together really well. Sometimes a fork can help the binding process.  (You can also roll the stromboli into a long log, press the dough on the ends together and bake it seam-side down. If you choose this method, add your topping to the entire surface area like you are making a pizza, not just half; again, avoid the edges).
  8. Brush the top of the stromboli with melted butter and sprinkle 1 more teaspoon of garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil on top of stromboli for added flavor.
  9. Place the stromboli in the oven and bake at 375*F for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  10. Finally, remove the stromboli from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
  11. Additionally, I always like to have the remaining pizza sauce warmed on the side for dipping.
  12. The last step is to obviously devour and enjoy!
