Pepperoni, Olive and Sun Dried Tomato Stromboli

Pepperoni StromboliI know I’ve posted many pizza recipes, like this, this and this.

Oh, and this.

But this one is different.


You should know that I made this a few times to confirm how much I loved it before I decided to post it. Yep, I’m that dedicated to your happiness.

Each time turned out even more excruciatingly fantastic than the one before.

Excruciating is a very strong word, people.


This version happened to be my favorite.

Oh, what a difference these little sun kissed tomatoes do.

Pepperoni, Olive and Sun Dried Tomato Stromboli

Pepperoni, Olive and Sun Dried Tomato Stromboli


  • Dough:
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • The Rest:
  • 2 cups pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup pepperocini, chopped
  • 3/4 cup green olives, chopped
  • 3/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Provolone cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Muenster cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • Flat leaf Italian parsley, chopped


  • Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water. In a stand mixer, combine the flour and salt. Add olive oil, followed by water/yeast.
  • Mix on low until thoroughly combined.
  • Using greased hands, form dough into a ball (it might already be one) and place in oiled bowl.
  • Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees and spray a large flat baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Divide dough equally into 6 sections and spread each out on a flat surface, as if you're making pizza.
  • Divide the filling ingredients (pepperoni through cheeses) evenly among the dough sections in the center.
  • On both sides of the dough, slice vertical strips with a knife. Fold up the end pieces of dough, then criss cross the strips until the stromboli is wrapped up.
  • Brush with egg wash, sprinkle with parsley and bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Slice and serve with marinara.

IMGP5885She’s so pretty.


I like mine dipped in marinara, but you could also use melted garlic butter.


Which, by the way, I’ll be doing next time. I just made that decision.

    Sounds fantastic! Question, so the dough never “rises”?? Can’t wait to try… 🙂

    1. Dixie Chik

      The dough does rise some at first, and it gets better and rises the more you leave it in the fridge (covered).
