Easy Ham and Cheese Stromboli

This meat and cheese-stuffed stromboli will feed a crowd! Homemade stromboli with ham, salami, provolone, and mozzarella rolled up in pizza dough. Easy to make, easy to share.


You have to love a recipe that looks like you worked hard when actually you didn’t do much at all. This homemade stromboli fits that bill.

Stromboli, a cousin of the calzone, fits into that category, and when you’re finished, you can feed the neighborhood.

What is Stromboli?

Stromboli is a long roll of meat and cheese wrapped in pizza dough, which is then cut into individual slices for serving. It’s an Italian-American invention from the 1950s, apparently named for the film “Stromboli,” which was on the silver screen at the time. There is also a real place called Stromboli; it’s a volcanic island off the north coast of Sicily.

How to Make Stromboli

Begin with dough from your favorite local pizzeria or supermarket — or make your own! Roll it out and add layers of salami, ham, mozzarella, and provolone. I like to temper all this richness with a sprinkle of capers and a few peppadews (which are tangy and slightly spicy pickled red peppers that you can find at most grocery store salad bars, or buy in jars).

I usually roll out the dough on floured parchment paper, which I then use to help roll the dough and all the layers of meat and cheese into a log. Then I pick up the parchment on both sides — like a sling — and set it on the baking sheet.

Bake the stromboli until golden, cut into colorful slices, and serve warm.
