Homemade Pepperoni Stromboli Recipe

- Stromboli, a mixture between a pizza and a calzone, is a savory and undeniably delicious little pocket of food. 

There are many ways you could customize stromboli, but recipe developer Ting Dalton opts to keep hers classic, incorporating pepperoni in her homemade rendition. 

Along with cheese (obviously), sauce, a little bit of oregano, and even some slices of salami, you have a simple stromboli that comes together easily, thanks to the use of pre-made dough. 

"This stromboli is so simple to make, purely because by using ready-made pizza dough, you can simply add all the delicious toppings before rolling," Dalton says. 

There's no need to fuss over making homemade dough with this recipe, which is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser amongst kids. 

"It's perfect for entertaining, or for kids," Dalton explains. "Slice [the stromboli] up, and serve it on platter or board with dipping sauce, and let everyone help themselves." 

As for the dipping sauce, well, it's up to you — marinara sauce, ranch, or any type of creamy dressing would be great.

Gather the ingredients for homemade pepperoni stromboli

The base of this homemade stromboli is pre-made, thin-crust pizza dough, which really makes this recipe easy and quick. As for the fillings, you'll need pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, salami, pepperoni, and oregano. 

"I like to add oregano, as I think the herb works so well with the cheese and pizza sauce," Dalton says. Finally, you'll need a beaten egg, which you'll brush on the crust to help it get nice and golden as it bakes. 

Assemble the stromboli

Preheat the oven to 400 F, then roll the pizza dough out across a sheet of parchment paper. Now, assemble the stromboli. 

Start with the pizza sauce, spreading it out evenly, but be sure to leave a 2-inch gap around the edges. Next, evenly layer on the salami, followed by half of the mozzarella, and finally top it all off with the pepperoni. 

Now, roll the stromboli up, starting with the side closest to you, until you have a log shape. Pinch the edges to seal in all of those goodies, and be sure to secure the seam as well. Then, place the stromboli seam-side down on a baking sheet. 

Bake, slice, and serve

Before popping the stromboli into the oven, brush the egg wash on top, and cut little slits across the dough. Sprinkle on the remaining ¼ cup cheese and the oregano. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the top of the dough is nice and golden.

Slice and serve with your favorite dipping sauce — Dalton recommends extra pizza sauce, ketchup, or even mayo. 

If you enjoy planning ahead and freezing meals, then you can easily do so with this stromboli. "I also like to make this stromboli in several batches, so that you can freeze and reheat [it] at another time," Dalton notes. "You can freeze for up to three months."
