Quick and Easy Stromboli gets loaded with Italian salami, pepperoni, pizza sauce and cheese. This is so quick, easy and delicious you will want to make it again and again!

What is Stromboli?

Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various Italian cheeses and cold cuts or vegetables. The dough used is either Italian bread dough or pizza dough. Bread dough, cheese (typically mozzarella), meat or vegetables are the main ingredients.

Stromboli’s are usually thought of more with Pizza. You could say it’s a different take on a Calzone. While a Calzone is Stuffed inside of pizza dough, Stromboli’s ingredients are rolled in it. This Stromboli is a bit different. As you can see it’s not your classic pizza ingredients. In my opinion these contents give this meal more opportunity to be on the table at any time.


  • 1 tube Pillsbury thin crust refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 12 slices italian salami
  • 16 slices pepperoni
  • 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh chopped parsley optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll the dough out and stretch it out on a piece of parchment paper. Spread the pizza sauce leaving about 2 inches from the edge. Top with Italian salami, then the cheese, and end with pepperoni.

  2. Roll up the dough up like a cinnamon roll and pinch the edges to seal and fold where the seam is. Lay the stromboli seam side down. Brush with the egg and cut small slats in the top. Top with 1/4 cup cheese, Italian seasoning and sprinkle with fresh parsley.

  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve with warm pizza sauce.


If your Stromboli burns before the inside is baked, your oven may run hot! Be sure to bake stromboli in the lower half of the oven for best results.

I’ve done veggie , cheese steak, chicken wing…the possibilities are endless, just use your imagination it’s fun and easy to make and the whole family enjoys it
