Sausage Pepper and Onion Stromboli

This sausage and pepper bread is basically a stuffed, rolled pizza. It’s so delicious you’ll want to make it again and again!  I partnered with DeLallo for this sausage stuffed bread recipe that is perfect for feeding a crowd. I always keep DeLallo’s Pizza Dough Kit stocked in my pantry so I can make pizza any time without having to run out to buy dough.

pizza kit

The DeLallo’s Pizza Dough Kit uses 00 flour, and comes with a yeast packet, so all you have to do is add water which makes enough for two pizzas.

How to Make Pizza Dough with the DeLallo Pizza Dough Kit

  • Combine the flour mix and yeast packet that comes with the kit in a large mixing bowl with 1 ¼ cups of lukewarm water. Stir with a fork until dough begins to form.
  • Knead by hand for three minutes or until dough is soft and smooth.
  • Place in an oiled bowl and cover for 45 minutes until the dough rises.

How to Reheat if Making Ahead

You can make this Italian stuffed bread ahead and under cook it by 10 or 15 minutes, then reheat it when you’re ready to serve. Just cover it with foil and place it in the oven until heated through.


  • Swap the Italian chicken sausage with turkey sausage or even ground turkey seasoned with Italian herbs. You could also stuff the bread with turkey pepperoni.
  • Make it dairy-free by omitting the cheese.
  • I love DeLallo’s Pomodoro Spicy Arrabbiata Sauce because it’s spicy and delicious, but if you don’t like spicy food, you can use any marinara, or my homemade marinara sauce recipe.
  • Use the entire pizza dough kit to double this recipe and make 2 breads.

  • 16 ounces pizza dough, from a little more than half of 1 Delallo pizza dough kit
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced 1/4 inch thick

  • 3/4 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • sesame seeds, optional for topping


  • Prepare the pizza dough as instructed on the package.

  • Preheat the oven to 500F and set rack in the center of the oven. Spray a nonstick sheet pan with oil.
  • With a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a floured surface to a 16 x 10 inch rectangle.
  • Place the onions and peppers leaving about 1 1/2 inch from the edge. Top the sausage over the peppers and onions. Top with cheese. Use the egg wash and brunch along the edge of the dough.
  • Fold one side of the dough over to cover the filling, then the short edges, followed by the other side, stretching slightly to seal, pinching the ends so nothing oozes out.
  • Lay the bread seam side down on the prepared pan. Cut small slats in the top and brush with egg white. Top with sesame seeds, if using.

  1. This was great! The only change I made was making the 2 ingredient dough (self rising flour and nonfat Greek yogurt) and using turkey pepperoni instead of sausage so I can lower the WW points. I highly recommend this recipe. The thorough instructions and video ensured a professional looking stromboli! 🙂 Thanks for the awesome recipe, Gina!

  2. There is excellent dairy free cheese. Shredded Mozzarella cheese dairy free and also plant based “meat” for vegans that don’t eat animals. Gardein makes the best.

  3. Wow. Made this tonight using the yogurt/bagle dough recipe. This was delicous. It tasted exactly like a good sausage and pepper sub.

    This was amazing! Perfect for a busy school night-you could prep filling on the weekend and have it ready in 30 minutes!!

    Delicious!! I made sure to tell my kiddos at dinner that I MADE it because it looked so nice and tasted so good I thought they might think I bought it 😉

  6. This was amazing!! Thank you for another great recipe and for introducing me to the Delallo pizza kit! Love it and plan to use it going forward!

  7. so so so so good! I have loved every Skinnytaste recipe I have tried. Even the ones I’ve been skeptical about. I used fresh Publix dough, and it was perfect. A big hit! Thanks!

  8. I made this with the 3 ingredient dough tonight and it was perfect! I didn’t notice that the temp was supposed to be reduced and I baked it for 20 minutes at 500. It was still fine!I wish I could post a picture!

  9. I’ve been making Ginas recipes for years and they’re always spot on!!! This one didn’t miss the beat. A forewarning though, that arrabriatta sauce is SPICY. I used the rest of the dough 3 days later to make personal pizzas too with all the same seasonings/toppings. It was all delicious. 

  10. I really like this recipe, however I struggled with the way it was written. I typically look at the prep and cook time when deciding to make a meal, and it was very deceiving. The time that it took to for the pizza dough to rise was not included in the prep time. There was also not time built into the cook time for allowing the pepper/sauce mixture to cool. The end result was delicious, it just took me 3 days to enjoy it due to a hungry family waiting.

  11. It would be nice if the amounts for yeast and flour were provided for those who cannot buy a pizza dough kit. 

  12. Absolutely amazing, and will become one of my “go to” menu items going forward. I’m a vegetarian, so I substituted the chicken sausage for Beyond Meat Hot Italian Sausages, and the taste with everything came perfectly together. I was worried that the dough would not have been cooked long enough (always worry about undercooked dough), but it came out nice and brown / crisp on the outside, and it was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection on the inside.

    I had to make sure to stop myself from eating the whole thing in one sitting!

    Thank you Gina for another amazing recipe! I can’t wait to make it again.

  13. i was a little over ambitious with my dough and stuffing amount. i split it into two, one turning into a dough/sausage mess. i was super nervous about it, but it came off the grill (cooked at the temp you suggested) and it was DELICIOUS. not pretty like yours, but super tasty. both 5yo kids + my husband and i ate it all up – thumbs up all around.

    thanks for the great recipe!!!

  14. Would love to make this! Think it would freeze well? Bake first then freeze? Trying to prep meals for a new baby!

  15. I’d love to freeze this recipe to bring on vacation! Do you think this would freeze well? If so, freeze before or after cooking?

  16. Fun family recipe! I subbed mushrooms for the peppers as no one in my house will touch peppers (except for me).
    This would be a great appetizer for the fall holidays, thinly sliced.
    Thanks for another great recipe.

  17. Made my own quick pizza dough & added herbs & garlic to it . Subbed tomato paste & herbed/spiced it up.
    I Doubled the ingredients, so of course it was quite a stretch to close it nicely. It stretched very thin & I didn’t want to risk everything leaking and spilling out so I decided NOT to turn it seam side down & used the rustic looking rips on top as my air holes. Worked BEAUTIFULLY! 
    So don’t worry if you’re dough pops open a bit … just don’t flip it. 

    1. Hi! Did you happen to make your pizza dough using the Bagel recipe? I like to make my own ingredients as much as possible over store bought. Tia!

  18. You indicate we could use ground turkey with Italian seasoning. Any suggestion how much seasoning to use?

  19. I can’t wait to make this tonight.! I am wondering if you could post pictures of how to fold it, or a video. Do you fold the first side to the middle or all the way over to the other side? I have looked at videos online and a lot of them roll it, but I’d like to try folding it. Has anyone made it and have some tips?

  20. Looks yummy! Can you replace the pizza dough with the 2-ingredient dough recipe? Would love to lower the WW points just a bit. Thank you!

    this looks delicious! Thank you for sharing! Not sure if anyone can answer, but what if a person made this with the 2 ingredient pizza dough? Not a big deal, just wondering!

    Hi Gina! This looks great but the points are a little high for one piece. Could this be done with Two-Ingredient Pizza Dough (Fat free Greek yogurt and self-rising flour)? What would the points be? Thanks, I love ALL of your recipes!!!

  23. Hey Gina! This sounds amazing. Quick question. Do you weigh the dough after mixed or dry? Thank you for your recipes. They are always loved in my house!!

      1. Yum! I will definitely be making again and trying to freeze it for after I have my baby.

        Would you say this is kid friendly spicy (he likes some spice but, you know, still a kid! Lol)?
