Stromboli! It’s like the love child of pizza and a calzone, and it can be all yours with this recipe! A fun and delicious lunch or supper treat.


  • 1 12 ounce batch pizza dough, either homemade or from the supermarket
  • 1/4 pound deli meat (salami, ham, etc)
  • 1/4 pound cheese (I like provolone for this, but any thin slices or crumbled cheese will work)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking sheet.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough to 1/8-1/4 inch thickness, to about a 13×9 inch rectangle.
  3. Spread a few spoonfuls of pizza sauce along the long bottom 2/3s of the dough, leaving a clean 3 inch strip across the top.
  4. Layer on the cheese and meat, alternating as you go.
  5. Fold the short ends of the dough in about an inch (this helps seal the ends).
  6. Roll the dough long ways until you have a long rolled cylinder. Place it seam side down on the baking sheet.
  7. Cut several slashes on the top for the steam, and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake for 10-15 minutes until crust is golden. Cool for 10 minutes, cut into slices and serve with extra pizza sauce for dipping.
