For the Dough:
  1. In a small bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  3. Layer the ham, turkey pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, bell peppers, red onion, and black olives evenly over the dough.
  4. Sprinkle dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper flakes (if using) over the filling.
  5. Roll the dough tightly, starting from the longer side, to form a log.
  6. Place the rolled Stromboli on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
For the Egg Wash:
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the beaten egg and water.
  2. Brush the egg wash over the surface of the Stromboli.


  1. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
  2. Allow the Stromboli to cool slightly before slicing.
  3. Serve and enjoy this flavorful Italian Stromboli as a Weight War’s-friendly meal!
