Pizza Stromboli

Prep Time: 15 min.
Bake Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 8
Difficulty: Beginner

Filled with pepperoni, sausage and cheese, this stromboli will bake up to be a family favorite.


10 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls or 7 Texas Rolls, thawed to room temperature
2 Tbsp marinara sauce
50 slices pepperoni
1/2 lb sausage, cooked
2 cups mozzarella, shredded
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup parmesan
2 tsp Italian seasoning


On a sprayed surface, combine roll dough and roll it out to a 10×12-inch rectangle.

Spread marinara sauce on the dough, leaving a 1-inch clean edge on one of the 12-inch sides. Layer the pepperoni and sausage over the marinara. Top the fillings with the mozzarella.

Starting on the 12-inch end, roll up the dough jelly-roll style, towards the clean edge. Using the clean edge of the dough, pinch to seal.

Place the Stromboli sealed side down on a sprayed baking sheet. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with parmesan and Italian seasoning. Bake at 350ºF for 20-25 minutes. Slice to serve.

    Should I let it rise again after filling before baking?

      Thanks for your question! You do not need to let the dough rise before filling it. Just let it thaw and put the fillings in and then let the stromboli rise for about 45 minutes before baking. Then enjoy!

      Yes, you can let it rise for about 30-45 minutes. No need to let it rise before assembling. Just let it thaw.

        your recipe does not say to let it rise after filling the dough…..

          Thanks for your comment! It really doesn’t need to rise after filling it. When you put it in the oven, it will raise enough after the heat of the oven gets to it. I, myself, do like to let it rise for about 45 minutes after filling it.
