I love making Stromboli! Pizza dough baked around cheese and cold cuts? Sign me up! It’s kinda like a hot Italian combo now that Im thinking about it. Here is an awesome easy stromboli recipe that anyone can make.

This is just how I chose to fill this one. There’s no limit to the cheese and meat combos you could do here. Just mentioning that Incase that sparks some Stromboli inspiration.

Anyway, it’s delicious and great to make for a crowd. It’s super budget friendly too. Stromboli can be served alone or with sauce for dunking. The choice is yours 😊.


I often get the dough from my local pizza place. It’s $3 for an extra large pizza. You can easily make 4 Stromboli out of that.

Most places will sell it to you. Just walk right in to your favorite pizza shop and ask. Chances are they be happy to sell you some.

Cold cuts

As far as cold cuts go- you can get them wherever you want. Here in Jersey there are Italian Deli’s all over. Making a stop is nice and easy.

If delis are few and far between when you live, just get them at your grocery store. No big deal.

Ingredients List:

  • Pizza dough- from a pizza place, in a Pillsbury can or make it. Doesn’t matter.
  • Deli ham -about 10/12 slices
  • Deli salami- about 10/12 slices
  • Deli pepperoni- about 10/12 slices
  • Deli Provolone cheese (about 10/12 slices.
  • Italian seasoning
  • 2 tbs melted butter
  • You’ll need a baking sheet and parchment paper too

Now here’s how to make it:

  • Roll out the pizza dough with a rolling pin
  • Next, sprinkle with Italian seasoning
  • Then, add the provolone overlapping slightly.
  • Now do the same thing with the pepperoni
  • Then the salami
  • And then finally the ham
  • Finally time to jelly roll it up
  • Place on a parchment paper linked baking sheet seam side down
  • Next brush the top with melted butter and lightly sprinkle with Italian seasoning
  • With a knife, add a few slits on the top of the dough.
  • Now bake at 375° for about 25 minutes or until the dough it cooked all the way through

  • let it cool slightly before slicing.


I like to slice the Stromboli on a little angle. I think it looks better and gives you a slightly bigger piece. Win win 🙌🏼

They’re ya go! You’re ready to serve it.

If you’re a dunker and looking for a sauce to make to go with this- here’s a good one.


I hope you like this one and maybe experiment a little bit and make your own version.

I made this with Pillsbury pizza dough but to be honest, I prefer dough from a pizza place. I use this kind when Im in a pinch. Its still good just not as fluffy and filling as using other dough.
