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.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. Punch dough down. Roll each loaf into a 15x12-in. rectangle.
  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. Tuck ends underneath; seal edges well.
  4. Place seam side down on greased baking sheets. Brush with remaining egg mixture. Bake until lightly browned, 30-35 minutes, brushing with egg mixture midway through baking. 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!"

"i've never made this exact recipe but have made a stromboli using the pillsbury crusty french loaf. you just unroll it, top it, roll it back up and back according to the packing. i usually make a lunchmeat version with ham, turkey, bacon, and cheese, but this looks tasty and will try this next time i make stromboli!"

"This would be so good serving it with a Pizza Sauce to dunk it in. We used to purchase Strombolis at a restaurant and that is the way they served it."
