Ingredients needed to make a Mummy Stromboli.

HOW TO MAKE A MUMMY STROMBOLI:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. On a clean work surface, lay out one of the pizza doughs and roll it out into a square that is approximately 14”x14”. Depending on your work surface, it may help to lightly spray with oil before laying the dough out.
  3. Layer the slices of meat onto the dough by starting with a layer of pepperoni, then a layer of hard salami – making sure to fill in any holes, and last, a layer of the ham.
  4. On top of the meat, add a layer of provolone, then sprinkle the sliced pepperoncini, and top with the mozzarella. Finish the layers off with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, reserving about a tablespoon of the parmesan cheese to use later.
  5. Starting on the end closest to you, roll the stromboli tightly into a log. Crimp all the seams and edges together. Transfer the stromboli to the prepared baking sheet and lay the stromboli seam side down.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the remaining melted butter, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, red pepper flakes, and black food coloring.
  7. Brush the black butter mixture all over the top and sides of the stromboli. 
  8. Sprinkle the top with the remaining parmesan cheese.
  9. Open the second roll of pizza dough and cut 1” thick slices using a knife or a pair of scissors. The strips should be long enough to lay across the stromboli. 
  10. Lay the strips of dough across the stromboli, crisscrossing as you go to make the appearance of a mummy. Leave a little space between the strips towards the top of the stromboli to place the eyes later.
  11. Carefully tuck the ends of the strips under the stromboli using your finger or a butter knife. 
  12. Bake the stromboli in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. If the top begins to brown too fast, tent the top of the stromboli with a sheet of aluminum foil. 
  13. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes, then place the eyeballs onto the stromboli before serving. Serve with marinara or pizza sauce for dipping.

CAN I CHANGE UP THE FILLINGS?

Absolutely! You can fill this with any of your favorite pizza fillings, some of our favorites include:

  1. Pepperoni
  2. Olives
  3. Various cheese
  4. Sausage
  5. BBQ Chicken

Really you can make this how you would like on the inside, the filling is really up to what your favorite is. You can use the one we have included or use your own.

CAN I MAKE MY OWN PIZZA DOUGH?

Yes, if you would rather use homemade pizza dough instead of a refrigerated one for this recipe, you can. Just make sure that you make a double batch. 

You will need one dough for the Stromboli itself and then one to make the strips to make it look like a mummy.

DO I HAVE TO USE THE BLACK FOOD COLORING?

We use this to make it look and feel more like a mummy, but adding the food coloring is optional. 

You can also use less, you do not have to make the coating super black, it can just be a light coating as well. Do what you feel best on that part of the recipe.

This can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, where it will keep for up to 3 days. 

You can also freeze this, wrap it in plastic wrap and then foil and it will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To defrost, remove to the refrigerator overnight until thawed. Reheat in the oven, covered at 350 degrees F until heated through.

  • The black food coloring is optional, see above on options.
