Sliced Stromboli are arranged in a round serving dish with a small bowl of tomato dipping sauce in the middle.

I tell you I’m all about short cut ingredients in my pantry. So for me a premade pizza dough is great because it saves me a good amount of time.

What is the difference between Stromboli and calzone

Both are delicious and often almost use the same ingredients.

The main difference is the size and shape. While a calzone is folded in half, a Stromboli is rolled as you know from a burrito and then for convenience sliced to make serving easier.

What you need for this Stromboli recipe

I keep it really simple so I added classic flavors that you know and love from pizza, but feel free to use anything you want like my Sugar Free BBQ SauceRanch Dressing, or Alfredo Sauce, fill with paprika, olives, pineapple. There are so many amazing options.

  • Pizza dough
  • Olive oil
  • Marinara
  • Garlic
  • Italian Herbs
  • Vegan mozzarella and parmesan
  • Vegan pepperoni

After adding another layer of vegan cheese, the dough is rolled up.

The rolled up Stromboli is finally brushed with olive oil and then baked golden in the oven.

How to make Stromboli

Preheat oven to 360°F. Roll out pizza dough on a baking greased with olive oil or lined with parchment paper. 

In a small bowl, mix marinara with Italian herbs and pressed garlic. Give 3 Tbsp of the marinara (reserve rest for serving) over pizza dough, top with 3/4 of the vegan mozzarella and vegan parmesan, followed by all of vegan pepperoni. Finish with remaining vegan cheeses on top.

Finally roll as tightly as possibly, brush with olive oil.

Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool down for 10 minutes before serving and slicing. Serve with marinara, if you like.

I like to serve this fresh from the oven and hot, so leftovers will work, but seriously this Stromboli is so much more delicious fresh.

Tips and tricks

Make ahead: you can roll and prepare all the fillings the night before and stick it in the fridge to bake the next day.

If you like a chunkier tomato sauce try this Spaghetti Sauce

Fresh or frozen pizza dough will work, bread dough will work as well.
