Stromboli (Pizza Roll)

February 6, 2013


This is one of our new favorite meals, inspired by this post on Dinner: A Love Story. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this myself–we make pizza all the time and I’ve never thought to  simply roll it up. We’ve made this twice now, and both times I have use refrigerated pizza dough. Next time I make it, I’m going to use one loaf of white bread dough. You can buy it frozen–just set it out to defrost the morning before using. Using bread dough will make for a nice, puffy stromboli roll that’s crusty on the outside but soft and doughy on the inside. It will take a bit more prep time as you have to let it defrost and rise, then spread it out and put your filling on, roll it up, and then let it rise again before baking. I can’t wait to try it.


pizza dough (Trader Joes makes good dough, also Pillsbury works too)

red sauce

mozzarella cheese

fillings (this is totally up to you–any meat, veggie, etc.)

Preheat your oven to 350°. Take a baking sheet and lightly grease it with olive oil. Spread out the dough so that it covers the entire baking sheet. Spread on the red sauce and all your other fillings. (We kept it simple with cheese and pepperoni.) Carefully roll it up, leaving it seam side down. If the dough tears, try to pinch it back together before baking. Sprinkle the roll with salt and bake for about 45 minutes, or until it’s brown and heated through. You’ll probably have some cheese bubbling out. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve with an extra side of red sauce for dipping.
