This savory stromboli relies on frozen bread dough, so it comes together in no time. The golden loaf is stuffed with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers and olives. I often add a few slices of ham, too. It's tasty served with warm pizza sauce for dipping. —Jenny Brown, West Lafayette, Indiana

"Extremely good!! This recipe was a hit at our family gathering. I made a variety of stromboli with this being at the top of the favorite list. I did not use the frozen bread dough as I didn't want to get a 5 package at this time so substituted a tube of crusty french bread dough with very good results. The substitution is the only reason I left off a star for my rating but it was a 5 in my book as I made it!!!"
