Simple Stromboli

I haven’t updated in a while, I guess winter causing us to be perpetually ill doesn’t help.  I’ve always wanted to make a stromboli!  It just sounds awesome.  I finally got around to it and make a simple stromboli recipe from Better Homes and Gardens.  It was perfect.  We made our own quick pizza dough from scratch, but you can buy a refrigerated dough if you like.  We will definitely make this again and substitute other ingredients like pancetta, salami, and other meats and veggies!


  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 T. cornmeal
  • One 13.8oz. package refrigerated pizza dough (or your favorite recipe from scratch)
  • 4 oz. thinly sliced cooked ham (we used deli ham)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 cup fresh baby or torn regular spinach
  • 4 oz. thinly sliced cooked turkey (we used deli turkey)
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped (we omitted)
  • 1/3 cup chopped red, green, or yellow sweet pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (we omitted and did vegetable oil)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly brush a baking sheet with olive oil and sprinkle with cornmeal; set aside.
  2. On a lightly floured surface carefully stretch or roll pizza dough into a 13×10″ rectangle.
  3. Arrange ham slices on dough about 1/2″ from edges.
  4. Sprinkle with half the cheese.
  5. Layer spinach and turkey on cheese.
  6. Top with remaining cheeses, olives, and sweet peppers.
  7. Roll up dough, starting from a long side.  Pinch dough to seal the seam and ends.
  8. Place loaf, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet. Brush with egg or vegetable oil.
  9. Using a sharp knife, cut slits in top for steam to escape.
  10. Bake about 30 mins. or until golden brown.
  11. Let stand for 10 minutes. To serve, slice loaf into serving size pieces.
