Mummified Stromboli {with Picture Tutorial}

If you've been around a while you might remember our Stromboli recipe posted back in 2011. Well, today's version is basically the same, but we've put a fun Halloween twist on it. And in case you aren't familiar with Stromboli, it's kind of like a giant calzone. Pizza fillings inside the bread.  Yum!

Stromboli happens to be a family favorite (our mom made it for us lots when we were young) and it didn't take much more effort to put this spooky twist on it.  For me when it comes to Halloween food, there are some things that I just cannot handle.  It has to actually look appetizing for me to eat it.  Jell-o worms? No, thanks.  This yummy mummy isn't too out of my comfort zone.  It's delicious as well as spooky and if your kids are anything like mine they will go crazy for it.  Definite crowd-pleaser.     

1. Start with your favorite pizza or bread stick dough.  Our favorite recipe is at the bottom if you keep scrolling.
2. Roll it out into a large rectangle, as long as and slight wider than a cookie sheet.  
3. Top with your favorite sauce, cheese, and pizza toppings.  Visit our pizza post if you need suggestions on what to stuff your mummy with.  Just steer clear of toppings with too much moisture here since they will make the mummy soggy.  (ie, pineapple, raw peppers)
4. Snip the sides with kitchen shears or a pizza cutter and start wrapping your mummy up.
5. Give him some eyes and bake to golden perfection! My favorite part is watching him "rise" in the oven as he bakes. :) haha!

Mummified Stromboli

For the dough:
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp white sugar
1 Tbsp instant yeast (I use SAF brand instant yeast)
1/2 tsp salt
3 - 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Olive Oil
Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling

Your favorite sauce and fillings:  Ham, sausage, pepperoni, and olives is a favorite combo at our house.
Mozzarella cheese

Pepperoni, black olives, green olive, cheese for mummy face.


In mixing bowl add warm water, sugar and instant yeast. Let sit for 3 minutes or so until sugar and yeast are softened.

Add salt and flour and knead in mixer for 3 minutes or by hand for 8-10 minutes. You want the dough to pull away from the sides of the bowl or counter

Place dough on lightly floured counter top or bread board and cover with a clean towel and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350.  Roll dough into a rectangle about as long as and slightly wider than a cookie sheet. Transfer dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheet and center it with the sides draped over.  Put sauce (not too much or it can get soggy), cheese, and toppings inside.

Using kitchen shears, cut the sides into 1 inch wide strips.  Begin folding them over onto each other and pinching them to seal to create your mummy.  

Brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Give the mummy eyes, and bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.  Let set for 10 minutes before slicing.
