  • 1 disc pizza dough from your local pizza place or homemade
  • Pizza sauce
  • 6 oz sliced pepperoni
  • 1-2 cups of Mozzarella cheese
  • Salt & pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.Lightly spray or oil your large baking sheet.
  • Work your dough gently into a rectangle shape. I find quickly turning it (like a steering wheel) and allowing the dough's own to weight stretch it, while it hangs briefly, works for me.
  • Once dough is shaped to your liking. place it on a large piece of parchment or waxed paper.
  • Season the dough with a bit of salt and pepper,
  • If you enjoy sauce on the inside of the bread like we do, lightly spread some pizza sauce around with the back of a spoon. Not to much, just a very light coat (or it will bake mushy).
  • Place a layer of thin pepperoni slices all over the dough, leaving 1/2 inch uncovered around the perimeter.
  • Sprinkle with cheese (as much or as little as you like).
  • Season with additional salt and pepper or whatever herbs you may enjoy.
  • Gently begin to roll (from the long edge) until you form a stromboli. Pinch seam and ends closed.
  • Gently lift your parchment to help get your stromboli onto your baking sheet, smush it a bit to make it fit of necessary.
  • Discard the paper and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and crisp.
  • Allow the stromboli to sit for a few minutes, then slice into pieces and serve with pizza sauce for dipping.


Feel free to season the top of the stromboli with salt and pepper or garlic salt if you like. You can lightly coat the outside of the stromboli with a little butter if you like as well just prior to sliding it into the oven.
