Suggestions for toppings

  • Pepperoni or ham thinly sliced
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese grated
  • sliced black olives optional
  • sliced onions optional
  • sliced mushrooms optional


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees and line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper allowing the paper to extend over the long sides of the pan.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll the homemade stromboli dough (remember it’s half of the recipe) into a large rectangle. (about the length of your sheet pan and about 3 inches wider)
  • Using your rolling pin, lift the rectangle of dough onto the sheet pan, allowing about two inches to extend over on one side and the other 1 inch on the other side.
  • Spread some of the Italian sauce in a thin layer over the stromboli dough leaving a 1/2 inch border on the ends and a 1 inch on one of the longer sides and a 2-inch border on the other side. Pour the remaining sauce in a bowl for dipping.
  • Sprinkle with 4 ounces of the grated mozzarella cheese and top with pepperoni and/or ham and the other toppings of your choice.  Sprinkle with 4 more ounces mozzarella cheese.
  • In a small bowl whisk the egg and water together and brush the outer edges of the stromboli dough with this egg wash.
  • Starting from the long side where you left the 1-inch border, use the parchment paper to roll the dough about 1/2 of the way. Grab the other side of the parchment paper and roll to fold it completely over. Make sure your seam is sealed by the egg wash, you can do this by pressing gently together. Then gently roll so the seam is on the bottom, tuck in the ends so the egg wash seals both ends. By gently using the parchment paper, position the Stromboli in the center of the pan.
  • Brush the entire Stromboli with egg wash and make diagonal slits for venting.
  • Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes, reduce the temperature to 375 degrees and continue to bake for 10-12 minutes checking often.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing into 1 to 2-inch strips.
  • Serve with warmed Italian sauce for dipping.
