Mummified Stromboli
  • For the dough:
  • 1½ cups warm water
  • 2 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp instant yeast (I use SAF brand instant yeast)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 - 3½ 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.
  1. In mixing bowl add warm water, sugar and instant yeast. Let sit for 3 minutes or so until sugar and yeast are softened.
  2. 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
  3. Place dough on lightly floured counter top or bread board and cover with a clean towel and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
