Easy Stromboli

It's kind of a Friday favorite. There are a few things I like to make that you can use up leftovers with, quiche, fried rice, tacos, and stromboli. This idea is from my mom (I really need to start scanning old photos like The Kitchen Witch does) who made this after I moved out.
My husband was out of town so I asked Maranda what she wanted for dinner with the roasted chicken that I made. She wanted Stromboli. Good I had everything but the dough. So we stopped at Publix and picked up some fresh premade (okay we cheated) pizza dough in the bakery on sale! Woohoo!!

This is a great way to use up leftovers. I divided the dough in two (my husband was out of town) and let everyone make their own. (okay it was just me and Maranda).

Roll it out into a rectangle. Sometimes you have to walk away and let it rest to make it the size you want. I throw a little Parmesan cheese down to keep it from sticking. Layer your stuffing. I used fresh (you can use frozen) spinach, cheese, seasoning, and shredded chicken. Maranda doesn't add the veggies at this point. She would rather eat them at a later time.

You can really add anything you like just make sure it's not too juicy.

Oooo, bad photo of my shredded chicken, spinach and mozzarella cheese.
Then you roll it like you would if you were making cinnamon rolls. Make sure you squeeze out all the air and pinch the seam closed. Lay the seam side down on the baking pan. I use my stoneware bar pan. Dust it with Parmesan cheese first.

Then I brush it with good olive oil, and sprinkle it with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese, and slice a few slits (not all the way through) in the top.

Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes, until a nice golden brown.

Serve with a marinara sauce, and enjoy.


  1. That looks so good, and easy! I'll have to try it sometime.:)


  2. That looks so yummy. I love spinach on my pizza so I will have to try it in stromboli.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this! I can't wait to make it. Yum-o!

  4. Hey, found your cooking blog! :D I'm so making these this week. Looks like a perfect weekday meal.

  5. Oh Lyndsey, this looks soooo yummy! Had never thought of this before....fantastic recipe! I wanted to try it out tomorrow. You're using pizza dough for the outter layer, right? Perfector...he he!

  6. Kristy, yes the pizza dough forms the outer layer. Sometimes I bake a little longer if the layers are too thick, I want to make sure it's cooked all the way through. I sprinkle parmesan cheese instead of cornmeal under mine when they bake.

    I hope everyone lets me know if they try it and what you put inside yours.


I would love to hear from you, please share your ideas, tips, stories or any questions or comments. Thanks for stopping by...
