Stronboli is why I wanted an easy pizza dough recipe. A stromboli is basically a rectangular pizza folded over itself a couple of times. Below is how I made mine on Sunday, but just like a pizze, use what ever sounds good to you. I used my red sauce, but made it thicker and more herby.



  • Easy Pizza Dough
  • Red Sauce, divided
  • 8 ounces your favorite pizza cheese, grated
  • 1/2 yellow onion, small dice
  • 1/2 green pepper, small dice
  • 12 thin slices Buon Gusto Salami
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper.
  3. On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to a large rectangle.
  4. Spoon on 8 tablespoons of pizza sauce on the dough.
  5. Spread it over 3/4 of the pizza dough.
  6. Leave a 1/2 inch border on three sides and a 2 inch border on the longer side.
  7. Sprinkle with half of the grated mozzarella.
  8. Top with the onion, green pepper, and salami.
  9. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  10. In a small bowl whisk together the egg and water.
  11. Brush the edges with the egg wash.
  12. Fold over the three half inch sides and using the parchment paper, roll the dough 1/3 of the way.
  13. Grab the other side of the parchment, the side with the 2 inch border, and fold it over the rest of the way.
  14. Position the stromboli in the center of the pan, seam-side down.
  15. Brush the entire thing with egg wash and make diagonal slits for venting.
  16. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake for 10 minutes.
  17. Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees and continue to bake for 15 minutes more.
  18. Remove and allow the stromboli to cool for 5 minutes.
  19. Slice into one inch strips.
  20. Serve alongside the remaining warm pizza sauce for dunking.
