Turkey and Cheese Stromboli, made with turkey, mozzarella, and green onions using refrigerated french bread dough. Only 4 ingredients!!
This is like most of the recipes you will see on this site. Easy.
I never really wanted to take on making a Stromboli. I use to think that you had to make the dough, make all the ingredients that go in it. And, I guess you still can do it that way. But, I like to have some of the cool foods, just without all of the hard work, more importantly, time. Would that make me a lazy cook? Probably. I’m ok with that.
Can I make Stromboli the day before?
Absolutely. Keep the prepared stromboli wrapped in plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator. Let it warm to room temperature until you are ready to bake it.
Stromboli vs Calzone
A lot of people ask “What is the difference between a stromboli and a calzone?”
- Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various Italian cheeses and cold cuts or vegetables. The dough used is either Italian bread dough or pizza dough.
- A calzone is an Italian oven-baked folded pizza that originated in Naples in the 18th century. A typical calzone is made from salted bread dough, baked in an oven and is stuffed with salami, ham or vegetables, mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan or pecorino cheese, as well as an egg.

As I mention in the recipe below, you can totally customize this. For one, you could try a different type of dough. I used refrigerated pizza dough on my Bacon Cheeseburger Roll Up and I actually prefer that over the French Bread. I am just trying to change it up some over here.
Besides that, you could also change up the meat you use, for example, use cheddar cheese in lieu of the mozzarella. Either that, or, you could use salami instead of turkey. If you like Salami.
Leave me a comment below and let me know what combination you used. I might just use that next time.
