Servings: 10 (1 slice)


1 package of pre-made pizza dough

3 tablespoons of olive oil

1 cup fat-free mozzarella cheese (grated)

10 slices of deli ham (thinly sliced)

8 slices of turkey salami

8 slices of turkey pepperoni

1 large egg (beaten)

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ cup grated parmesan

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Unroll the premade pizza dough and, if necessary, roll it into a rectangle about 12 x 14 inches with a rolling pin.
  • In a small bowl, combine a tablespoon of melted olive oil and the minced garlic. Brush the top of the dough.
  • Spread ½ cup mozzarella cheese on top of the dough, leaving the edges bare.
  • Top cheese with ham, then add another layer of mozzarella cheese. Then add the salami and pepperoni pieces. Sprinkle remaining cheese over pepperoni.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg with a fork and pastry brush to coat the edges of the dough.
  • Then carefully roll up the Stromboli. Start with the longer edge and roll it tightly so it stays together. Seal the seam with a little water. Then roll the Stromboli so that the seam is down. Finally, both ends of the dough are underneath, so it’s well sealed. Then transfer to a baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, combine the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil, garlic powder, Parmesan, and chopped parsley. Brush the top of the Stromboli with the butter mixture. Using a sharp serrated knife, make shallow diagonal cuts on the Stromboli every two inches.
  • Bake in preheated 375 degree F oven for 25-30 minutes or until top is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let stand for five minutes. Serve with marinara sauce and enjoy.
