How to Freeze Stromboli

Zedcor Wholly Owned/ Images

A stromboli, filled with meats, cheese and even vegetables, is reminiscent of a calzone or baked sub sandwich. Raw bread dough is wrapped around the delectable filling and baked until the bread becomes golden brown and the filling is piping hot. Making a stromboli can be time-consuming, but cooking is simple once the loaf is prepared. Making several strombolis in advance and freezing them supplies a quick meal that tastes like it took all day to prepare.

Step 1

Prepare the stromboli using your preferred recipe then pinch the dough together at the seams. Do not cut steam slits in the stromboli roll before freezing.

Step 2

Tear off a sheet of freezer-duty aluminum foil that is large enough to completely wrap the stromboli. Sprinkle a thin dusting of flour on the foil so the dough doesn't stick.

Step 3

Set the stromboli on top the prepared foil and wrap it tightly. Fold over the ends of the foil so the dough is not exposed to air.

Step 4

Place the wrapped stromboli in a freezer-safe ziptop storage bag. Push out the excess air and seal. Alternatively, wrap the stromboli tightly in a layer of plastic freezer wrap.

Step 5

Freeze the stromboli immediately in a 0-degree Fahrenheit freezer. Store the stromboli for up to one month.
