Ingredients you’ll need to make Bacon Cheeseburger Stromboli:

  • Crust – One 13.4 ounce can refrigerated pizza dough i.e. Pillsbury Classic.

How to Make the BEST Bacon Cheeseburger Stromboli Recipe

  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: Large sheet pan, skillet, sharp knife and cutting board, cheese grater, measuring cups and spoons.
  • This recipe was designed for ease of preparation hence the use of refrigerated pizza dough. It’s formulated to bake quickly and fully, so it really is the best crust to use for this recipe.
  • If you have a silicone baking mat, it’s helpful for moving the stromboli from the counter to the pan for baking.
  • To save time, the ground beef can be cooked in advance, and refrigerated until you’re ready to assemble.
  • You could use ground turkey, ground chicken or pork in place of ground beef.
  • You can add additional toppings to the filling, if you like. Jalapenos, mushrooms or any of your favorite burger add-ons.
  • I don’t measure the ketchup and mustard for this recipe. This is one of those moments you “eyeball” the amount. The amounts in the recipe should be used as a guideline and can be easily adjusted.
  • You can divide this stromboli into one inch slices or cut it into bigger pieces depending on the appetites of those you’re serving.
  • Serving suggestion – You may want to serve additional ketchup and mustard on the side for dipping.

  • Reheat in single serving portions in the microwave.

  1. Hi Rhonda, thank you for stopping by to visit. A Silpat is a silicone baking mat. NOTHING sticks to it, it’s a wonderful tool to have in the kitchen. Silicone baking mats are sold under many different brand names now, and I highly recommend them, if you love to bake.
