Making a Spicy Italian Sausage Stromboli is a flavorful and satisfying way to enjoy a classic Italian dish. Here’s a simple recipe for you:


For the Dough:

  • 1 pound pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
  • All-purpose flour (for dusting)

For the Filling:

  • 1 pound spicy Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil (for brushing)

For Dipping (Optional):

  • Marinara sauce


1. Preheat the Oven:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Prepare the Filling:

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the spicy Italian sausage, breaking it apart with a spatula as it cooks. Once browned and cooked through, remove any excess grease.
  2. Add sliced bell pepper, red onion, and minced garlic to the skillet. Sauté until the vegetables are softened.
  3. Season with dried oregano, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Remove the skillet from the heat and let the filling mixture cool slightly.

3. Roll Out the Dough:

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a rectangular shape.

4. Assemble the Stromboli:

  1. Spread the sausage and vegetable filling evenly over the rolled-out dough.
  2. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese over the filling.
  3. Carefully roll up the dough, starting from one of the longer sides, to create a log-shaped Stromboli.
  4. Place the Stromboli seam-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

5. Brush with Olive Oil:

  1. Brush the surface of the Stromboli with olive oil, which will give it a golden brown color as it bakes.

6. Bake:

  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the Stromboli is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

7. Cool and Slice:

  1. Allow the Stromboli to cool for a few minutes before slicing into rounds.

8. Serve:

  1. Serve the Spicy Italian Sausage Stromboli slices with marinara sauce for dipping if desired.

9. Enjoy:

  1. Enjoy your delicious and spicy Stromboli!
