I've made this many times when friends and family come over to watch football and basketball games. This sandwich always satisfies the huge appetites we build up cheering for our teams. - Shelley Banzhaf, Maywood, Nebraska

  1. Place each loaf of bread dough in a large greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.

  3. In a small bowl, combine eggs, oil and seasonings. Brush over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges; set remaining egg mixture aside. Layer beef, pepperoni, cheeses and onion on dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up, jelly-roll style, beginning with a long side. Seal edges well.
  4. Place seam side down on greased baking sheets. Brush with remaining egg mixture. Bake until lightly browned, 30-35 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 2 stromboli (8 servings each).

"Buy fresh pizza dough from pizza parlor. We get it for $2. MUCH better than frozen bread dough.

My husband is the king of pepperoni making."

"Delicious! Variations of this recipe are endless! The only complaint I have was the bread dough was a pain in the butt to roll out to the rectangle. My husband ended up taking pity on me and did it. It was well worth the effort though because we both loved it. Perfect snack/meal while watching football!"

"Everybody loved this recipe! I did make a few changes the second time I made it. I only thawed the bread dough, and did not let it rise. I thought it was easier to work with, then. Also, I only used 1 egg and half of the stated amount of olive oil, and had plenty for both loaves. Thanks!"
