One of the most popular recipes here on my blog — and one of Dave and my personal favorites — is my recipe for Stromboli.
It’s such a simple meal to make, with simple (customizable) ingredients… and it’s SO delicious. I mean, what’s not to love about crusty bread dough wrapped around all your favorite pizza toppings and smothered in savory herbs and spices?
Well, a few weeks ago my sister introduced me to the idea of “Stromboli Bites” — or basically a bite-size way to enjoy this delicious meal (or appetizer, or snack).
They were supper yummy and super easy, so I thought it would be a perfect compliment to my already popular Stromboli recipe.
Recipe for Stromboli Bites:
Makes approximately 16-22 bites (finished bites are about 2.5″ in diameter)
- 1 loaf frozen bread dough (or your favorite homemade bread dough / pizza crust)
- enough of your favorite pizza meats to fill the center of your dough I use deli ham, ground sausage, pepperoni, salami, etc.
- 2-4 t. of your favorite pizza seasonings to sprinkle on the crust (oregano, basil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, etc.)
- 1 c. mozzarella cheese
- Your favorite pasta/pizza sauce for dipping
- Preheat oven to 350*F
- Roll out bread dough on your counter, a cutting board, or a non-stick mat.
- Sprinkle your favorite herbs, seasonings, and parmesan cheese over the dough
- Spread various pizza meats (I used salami, ham, and pepperoni) on the entire surface of the dough
- Roll the dough into a log — starting from one of the long ends
- Cut log into 16-22 rolls — approximately 1″ – 1.5″ thick
- Place rolls (a.k.a. bites) on a greased cookie sheet or in a greased pan
- Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of each roll
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown
These little bites could easily make a full meal if paired with a salad and some fresh veggies — but they would also be the perfect game-day snack, party-pleasing appetizer, or after-school treat.
And as always, feel free to customize any of the spices, seasonings, and other toppings to fit your taste buds. You really can’t mess these up!
