So Stromboli

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 1 Family Sized Strombil

So Stromboli


  • 1/2 lb. pizza dough ( I used my fool-proof recipe )
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce.
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • Cooked mince, Pepperoni, Veg or whatever you want to fill with.
  • 1 egg, beaten.
  • Dried Parsley & Parmesan cheese {optional}
  • extra pizza sauce for dipping {optional}


  1. Preheat oven.
  2. Line large baking sheet with baking paper, or rub with oil, or spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Spread pizza dough out on baking sheet to be approximately 10x16.
  4. Spread pizza sauce over 2/3's of the dough lengthwise, leaving a 3x16 rectangle of plain dough along one of the edges.
  5. Top sauce with half the grated cheese, and whatever filling you're using.
  6. Top with remaining cheese. Brush the plain strip of dough with the egg. Fold in the sides about an inch and brush them with egg. Roll up like a swiss roll lengthwise starting along the long edge of dough topped with all the fillings and ending with the plain strip of dough on the bottom of the roll. Brush the entire Stromboli with egg and gently cut slats in the top of the dough every 1-2 inches. Sprinkle parsley and cheese over top and bake 8-10 minutes or until bubbly and golden.
  7. Remove from oven, cool 5 minutes and slice into pieces. Serve with more pizza sauce.
