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.

  5. Mix all ingredients well

    Final Stromboli dough
  17. Bake for 25 minutes.
  18. Baked Asparagus and Pepper Stromboli
  19. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
  20. Cut into slices
  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.

  16. Anila

    Looks yummy.i have a question. After the oven is preheated to 400 degrees,should we leave the oven on for the 25 minutes when the Stromboli is being cooked? Should i also use a baking sheet or is it OK to put the dough directly on the baking tray.


  17. kamala

  18. Hetal

    Lovely recipe. Looks so delicious, nicely presented.

    Very creative use of Asparagus.
    I love trying non-Indian vegetables (like, asparagus, celery, artichoke) but hardly know any good, Indianized recipes to use them 🙂
    Loved this Stromboli. With summer vacations coming up ( and my daughter demanding for different kind of food) this would be a nice recipe to try. Great for picnics too.
