Italian Stromboli, Made Super Simple

Updated on June 6, 2015


Italian Stromboli gets its name from the scenic island of Stromboli, off the coast of southern Italy, Sicily, in the Lipari group. The island of Stromboli is known for its striking scenery and its active volcano, which can reach the heights of 3,040 ft.; this island is found in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

You won't find any lava in these super simple Italian "sandwiches", but they are bursting with flavor. Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, typically mozzarella or provolone, Italian meats such as salami and capacola.

I always try to make my recipes easy enough for anyone to make and this one fits the bill. You don't have to mix anything, just layer the foods, roll it up and bake. Super Simple!

Great for just about any occasion. You can eat it alone or just add a tossed salad. I even have made these for cookouts at the park. I just wrapped them in aluminum foil and put them on the grill to warm up. Mangiare Buono!

Just a few pictures of Stromboli, Italy

I have downloaded these pictures off of Google. There wasn't an exact website. You can see how picturesque this island can be.


This is my particular recipe but you can add whatever Italian lunch meats you like, except loanza or prociutto; they will shrivel up and not lay flat. Mozzarella cheese is also delicious or you can use both, Mozzarella and Provolone.

Also you can add sliced canned mushrooms, slices black olives or thinly sliced red onion.

That's part of what is so great about Stromboli, you make it just the way you like it.

You can also sprinkle the seasoning you like, but be careful not to make it too strong; you want mostly to taste the decadent meats and cheeses.

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Feeds at least 8 people
  • 2 loaves of frozen bread dough
  • 1/2 lb. cooked ham, sliced thin
  • 1/2 lb. Genoa salami, sliced thin
  • 1/2 lb. sandwich pepperoni, sliced thin
  • 1/2 lb. Provolone cheese, sliced thin
  • 1 jar roasted peppers


  1. The night before or early in the morning, take your dough out of the freezer, rub them with oil and place them on a large sheet that is also rubbed with oil. Cover them with plastic wrap and a clean towel and let them defrost and rise to double in size.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line your pans with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray. Punch down the dough and place on the area you are using to roll them out.
  3. Roll out the first loaf of dough with your rolling pin in an oval shape till about1/4" thick. Check out the picture.
  4. Start layering your meats, then cheeses and then the roasted peppers. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning.
  5. Starting on the farthest side, start rolling the Stromboli as tightly as possible. Pinch the ends together and place on the prepared tray, seam side down. Repeat with the other loaf.
  6. Rub a little olive oil on the top of the loaves and sprinkle with a little oregano, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  7. Bake for at least 20 minutes or until golden brown and it sounds hollow when you tap on it. Let them cool a little before cutting them into thick slices. Enjoy!
