Servings: 16
  • 16 oz pizza dough
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • ½ lb pepperoni deli sliced
  • ½ lb provolone deli sliced
  • ½ lb deli tavern ham sliced thin
  • ½ lb salami sliced thin
  • 2 cups shredded skim mozzarella
Outside seasoning
  • ½ tsp parsley
  • ½ tsp basil
  • ½ tsp rosemary
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup marinara sauce for dipping
  1. Prep: make sure dough has come to room temp on the counter. after it has, place in a large bowl, coat the dough with a drizzle of olive oil, and cover with a kitchen towel. Leave the dough to rise for about 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  3. Place your pizza dough on a large baking sheet. Knead it out to be about the size of the pan. Always work from the middle outwards.
  4. Season the dough with ½ tsp sea salt, 1 tsp oregano, 1 ½ tsp garlic powder, and 2 tsp parsley once it is the size of the pan.
  5. Start layering: lay out the slices of pepperoni all over the dough until its finished. Repeat with the provolone, ham, mozzarella, and salami. The order really doesn’t matter, but try to alternate between meat and cheese
  6. Once you’ve finished adding all the fillings, start rolling the Stromboli by tucking the bottom edge over just an inch. Continue rolling it until you reach the end (jelly-roll style).
  7. Once you’ve reached the end, pinch the other edge to the dough to form a seam. And lay the Stromboli seam side down.
  8. In a small bowl, make the seasoning mixture with the ½ tsp parsley, ½ tsp basil, and ½ tsp rosemary, and 2 tbsp olive oil. Brush the top and sides of the dough entirely with the seasoning mixture, making sure to spread evenly. Lastly, sprinkle the sesame seeds all over the top and with a sharp paring knife, make angled slits on the top of the dough every couple inches to help vent the inside.
  9. Bake the Stromboli for 1 hour – 1 hour 15 min. If the outside is starting to brown before the inside seems cooked, cover with aluminum foil and continue baking. Let cool before cutting into or the cheese and oil will ooze out.
  10. Cut with a sharp serrated knife into 1” thick slices. Serve hot with marinara sauce!
