Easy Pepper Steak Stromboli Recipe

You may be wondering, why use premade pizza dough? Well, in this particular instance it’s because it makes prep faster and easier, it’s readily available and most importantly, it will cook all the way through not leaving you with a gooey finished product. I adore making my own pizza dough and I do so quite often. I love setting up a toppings bar and letting everyone make a personal pizza their way. It makes for a fun family dinner that my boys have come to love. For this stromboli, I chose to use premade dough for the ease of preparation and I assure you when you’re done assembling this, no one will notice or care.

How to Make the Best Pepper Steak Stromboli Recipe

We’re all mindful of how we spend money these days, especially with a hungry family to feed. Because of this, I find it helpful when grilling to prepare more than we need for our meal, so we can have a “round two” meal another day. Not only does it save money, but precious family time as well. Grilled sirloin can easily be transformed into a completely different meal. Roll it up in pizza dough, then top with crisp cooked bell peppers and onions, adding mushrooms if you like, and layer with cheese.

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Pepper Steak Stromboli recipe: Refrigerated pizza dough, (i.e. Pillsbury Classic or similar) grilled sirloin steak, diced onion, red bell pepper and green bell pepper, dry Italian seasoning, garlic salt, Parmesan peppercorn salad dressing or similar, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, melted butter and grated Parmesan cheese. You can also add warm marinara sauce or additional Parmesan peppercorn dressing for serving.
  • Kitchen gadgets you’ll need: A large sheet pan, sharp knife and cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, a cheese grater, a small bowl to melt the butter and a pastry brush.
  • The steak for this stromboli is already cooked. It’s important to consider this and not overcook it to begin with. It should also be cooled. Once wrapped in pizza dough and assembled, it will gently reheat while baking in the oven.
  • If you’d like to add a little heat to the flavor, swap out green bell pepper and replace it with poblano pepper.
  • If you’re unable to find Parmesan peppercorn dressing, any dressing with a similar flavor profile will work. Creamy Italian dressing or a creamy Caesar salad dressing could work.
  • While the stromboli bakes, prepare a wedge salad or a salad filled with your choice of leafy greens and crispy baked potato wedges and you can have a perfect combination of flavors on the table in around 30 minutes.
  • Store leftover Pepper Steak Stromboli chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in single servings in the microwave.
