What is Stromboli?
Stromboli was invented back in the 1950s and named after a very popular movie at that time, which was called Stromboli.
Stromboli is an Italian dish, usually prepared with pizza dough and stuffed with fillings. The fillings can be anything from traditional pepperoni and cheese to Italian cold cuts.
Unlike the calzone, the stromboli is usually rolled, while the calzone is typically folded over.

How To Make Air Fryer Pepperoni Stromboli
Start by laying out the pizza dough, and add about 2-3 tablespoons of the pizza sauce in the middle of the dough, and then sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
Then add your pepperoni slices on top.
Tip: Roll the dough out on parchment paper so that you can easily roll it afterward. Otherwise, the dough will stick to the counter.
Roll the dough up. Seal the ends by tucking them under, so the dough sticks to itself.
Spray your air fryer basket with cooking spray. And then, place the stromboli (seam side down) into the air fryer basket. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle the onion and garlic powder on top.
Set the temperature to 350 degrees F, air fryer setting for 12 to 15 minutes. Depending on your air fryer, flip halfway during the cooking process so each side gets cooked evenly.
Can I use different meat for my stromboli?
Yes, while I used simple pepperoni slices, you can add any cooked meat that you like, some great ideas, cooked ground sausage, diced cooked chicken, turkey ham, etc.
What could I use as a dipping sauce for my stromboli?
