Vegetarian Stromboli Recipe

When I first saw the words “stromboli recipe” in a magazine, I didn’t know what it was. It looked beautiful but sounded very fancy and difficult to make it at home. I went through the recipe and surprisingly found out that it was very easy to make in fact! Phew! glad that I did not skip such an easy stromboli recipe!

So what is this stromboli? How did it get it’s name? It’s basically a rolled pizza with a fancy name! So if you now how to make a pizza, which I’m sure even a kid can do it if the pizza dough is ready, you can make this stromboli pizza. The story behind the name is interesting. It seems the person who first made it named it after a movie called “Stromboli”!

Now getting back to the recipe, the original was not a vegetarian stromboli recipe. It had meat in it and I have made some changes to make this a veggie stromboli.

I used store bought refrigerated pizza dough to make this stromboli. This really saves a lot of time. It is as easy as just spreading the dough and topping it with the vegetables and cheese and rolling it up like you would roll a cake roll. Nothing difficult at all.

  1. I got around 23 pieces for this measurement. My husband and I loved it. A different twist to the regular pizza.
My Notes:
  1. This was a bit salty, so you may want to increase the amount of pepper if you want it spicy.
  2. I suggest to cool the baked Stromboli even for 10 minutes, so that slicing will not be difficult and you will also get neat slices.

    Hello! Your recipe looks yum!
    I’d like to try it but Pilsbury Pizza crust is not available here. Im from Mumbai. Could you suggest an alternative please?
    Also can it be a little less crispy?
    Awaiting your reply!
    Thank you soo much in advance!!

    • Madhuram

      You could try it with naans or rotis.

    How is this vegan when the pre made dough is made with milk and eggs

    • Madhuram

      Some of these crusts and other products are actually vegan, Deeann. You can check the list of such products in PETA’s website.

    Hi, Can I use homemade basic pizza dough for this? If yes, what should be the size of rectangle?

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can, Sunila. The size could be about 13×9.

    I made this yesterday.I did find it hard to work with the Pizza had a tendency to tear.
    I made quite some changes to the recipe
    I added chopped onions,olives and pesto.I somehow missed out the part about microwaving the veggies and draining the liquid(I guess I was too busy drooling at your pictures!)So some parts got a bit soggy but it tasted great.I cut it into chunks and it was all devoured by my kids and hubby.I served it with Butternut squash and lima bean soup from the Holycow vegan blog.Next time I may skip the onions and tomatoes-maybe they release too much of their juices.I am going to add spring onion greens instead.This is a great recipe and I will definitely make it many more times. 🙂

    Yes Geetha, the pizza dough has to be handled carefully. Thanks for giving it a try.

    Nice recipe, will have to try it. Do you think I can substitute with other veggies like zucchini, brocoli, frozen corn or spinach? I am not a fan of asparagus. Can you cook the mixture on the stove top instead of the microwave? Thank You.

    You could use any vegetable you like and cooking on stove top is fine too. I too hadn’t tasted asparagus before preparing this dish, so I was sort of reluctant. After tasting it I didn’t find it bad at all.

  6. dee

    this gave me and idea to make these fillings in corn muffins.. will try and let u know how it turns out

    Hi Madhuram,

    I loved your stromboli with asparagus and pepper. Of course when you think of the permutations and combinations. Sky is the limit!

    regards, Shoba

    Yes it’s ready-made pizza dough and is available in the refrigerator section next to butter and cheese in any chain of supermarkets.

    Ok, I’ve been reading food blogs for 2 months now, and this one gets my ranking of # ONE. I am not exaggerating. I am so excited to find this. Pictures, instructions – amazing. I love the Notes section. I like the explanations – it’s natually pleasing to me. Why did I not encounter this site earlier?!!!
