Stromboli Hero

You can use an unsliced 8 or 10 inch round loaf of Italian or sourdough bread instead of the focaccia. If you don't have pepperoncini peppers, use sliced tomatoes, sliced red onion or bell pepper rings.

You can make this hero up to 6 hours ahead; just wrap it (uncut) securely with plastic wrap and refrigerate.


  • 1 (8 or 9 inch) round focaccia bread
  • 1/4 cup Italian dressing
  • 4 to 5 leaves leaf lettuce
  • 1/4 pound sliced provolone cheese
  • 1/4 pound sliced fully cooked ham
  • 1/4 pound sliced salami
  • 8 pepperoncini peppers (bottled Italian peppers), drained and cut lengthwise in half


  1. Cut bread horizontally in half.
  2. Drizzle dressing evenly over cut sides of bread.
  3. Layer lettuce, cheese, ham, salami and peppers on bottom half of bread. Top with top half. Secure loaf with wooden picks or small skewers.
  4. Cut into 6 wedges.
