Trista & familyFor some reason, the word Stomboli used in a recipe seemed dangerous and way too complicated to me. I took the dive and gave it a shot a few weeks ago and I have made it once every week since. This is so easy! I should have known, as it was a favorite of mine in high school. If the cooks made it for all those kids, it couldn’t be too time consuming. And that is the case. You can throw this together in 10 minutes tops!







The Crust:

Most of the time I use two packets of that “Just add water” crust, about 12 oz.

Or you can make your own.


The Stuffing:

¼ lb. thinly sliced ham

¼ lb. thinly sliced pepperoni

¼ lb. ground beef, browned

1 C provolone cheese (or mozzarella)

Sprinkle on basil and oregano to taste


Pizza or spaghetti sauce for dipping

Butter, melted



  1. Roll out the crust in a rectangle onto a baking sheet.


  2. Layer ham, pepperoni, beef, cheese and spices onto the crust.



  3. Bring the sides together and pinch dough closed


  4. Flip the whole thing over so the seam is on the bottom

  5. Brush on some melted butter.


  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
