  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough into a large rectangle that is approximately 13” x 18” and about one half inch thick.
  3. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a one inch border and then layer the salami, pepperon, soppressata and mortadella over the sauce.
  4. Lastly, sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the sliced meats.
  5. Starting on the long side of the rectangle, roll up the dough so the sauce, meat and cheese are on the inside. Pinch the ends of the dough together and tuck them up to seal the roll.
  6. Place the stromboli, seam side down on the prepared baking sheet and brush the top of the dough with the beaten egg using a pastry brush.
  7. Use a sharp knife to cut 4 slits diagonally on the top of the dough and then sprinkle the stromboli with some Italian seasoning.
  8. Bake the stromboli in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Let the stromboli rest for 10-15 minutes and then slice into 12 total pieces and serve.

  • Dough - Make sure the pizza dough is room temperature so it’s easy to roll out.
  • Cheese - Freshly shred a block of mozzarella for the best flavor and texture. Provolone, fontina, or ricotta can also be added.
  • Filling - Any sliced Italian meat can be used in this stromboli like capicola or prosciutto. Sausage, olives, peppers, onions, or other veggies, would also be great.
  • Flavors - Try other fun flavor combos for your stromboli like cheesesteak, chicken parmesan, BBQ chicken, or Greek.
  • Gluten-Free - Use a gluten-free pizza dough.
  • Dairy-Free - Use a dairy-free cheese substitute.
  • Make Ahead/Leftovers - Assemble the stromboli and store on a cookie sheet covered in plastic wrap for up to 2 days ahead of time. Take the stromboli out of the refrigerator while the oven preheats and then bake as directed. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days and reheat in a microwave, oven, or air fryer.
