Broccoli rabe salami stromboli is a great weekend appetizer or snack while watching your favorite game or a family movie.
What I like about making stromboli is that you can use the leftovers you might have in the fridge which is what I often do.
Stromboli is flexible, you can make it vegetarian and eliminate any meat, just use cheese and veggies, mushrooms, olives, peppers, onions – the possibilities are endless.
There is no magic recipe for stromboli. I always use my favorite pizza dough recipe which will make two, what I would call large strombolis. My interpretation of large is that you can get 8-12 slices from each stromboli depending on how thick you cut the slices.
Making two stromboli gives you the opportunity to make everyone happy using their favorite foods. The prep is easy.
Just roll out the dough and layer your ingredients. One tip is to add cheese as the first layer and a little shredded cheese as the last layer. This helps to hold everything together.
Then roll up the dough and bake.
Broccoli Rabe Salami Stromboli
I've used leftovers. If you are buying ingredients to make this you will still use the same measurements. You can always use more or less of each depending on your preferences.
- Pizza Dough
- 2 cups of broccoli rabe
- 12 slices of salami
- 1 cup of black olives, halved
- 2/3 cup of shredded mozzarella
- 12 slices of provolone
- 1/4 cup sliced roasted peppers (optional)
- 1/2 tsp. oregano and/or basil

Everyone in my family has a favorite ‘flavor’ stromboli. One likes ham, another prefers salami, roasted peppers, always olives, and cheese is the ‘glue’ that keeps everything together, so be sure to use your favorite ‘melting’ cheese.
