Chocolate Zucchini Banana Cake with Vanilla Coffee Frosting.
These Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Strombolis are the perfect fun family dinner or game day go-to. Pizza dough rolled up with ranch, extra saucy buffalo chicken, three kinds of cheese, and homemade “pizza seasoning” sprinkled on top. As soon as these strombolis come out of the oven, serve them up with more buffalo sauce and ranch. Then just slice, eat, and ENJOY. Trust me, every last bite of these mini strombolis are delicious and so much fun! Everyone is sure to love them.
It’s that time of year. School is back in session, football is what everyone is talking about (at least around here), and fall will be here before we know it. I know we’re not there just quite yet, but I’m getting prepared for the season with these buffalo chicken strombolis. Yes, strombolis, because I made these mini and personal sized.
Stromboli seems to be one of those items that many people only order at their favorite pizza spot. But just like a classic pizza, these strombolis are really easy to make at home!
So that’s what we’re doing today.
Really the idea just came from the fact that football season is just around the corner. Sunday nights will be spent with the game on in the background during family gatherings. My dad and brothers all had their fantasy draft this week, and they are set!
Since my family is obsessed with anything buffalo chicken, I loved the idea of creating a buffalo chicken stromboli. In reality, it’s the same thing as a pizza…but just a bit more fun. And anything stuffed with cheese is always delicious!
Start with the dough. I like to use my homemade pizza dough recipe from the HBH Super Simple cookbook. It’s the easiest to make and truly delicious. If you can think a few hours ahead of time, I’d recommend making your own dough. If not, store-bought pizza dough works great too (Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s both have great options)!
Once you have the dough situation sorted out, the rest is easy and comes together quickly.
The chicken is a simple mix of buffalo sauce, cilantro, fresh chives, and jalapeños. I like to toss in some crumbled blue cheese too. I just love buffalo chicken and blue cheese together.
Once the chicken is tossed, divide the dough into four pieces and roll each piece out. Now layer with ranch, buffalo chicken, and lots of cheese. Tuck in the dough and wrap and roll, just as if you were making cinnamon rolls.
It’s so simple and easy to do!
Now that the strombolis are formed, brush each with a beaten egg and then sprinkle the tops with my homemade “pizza seasoning”. This is a delicious blend of parmesan, sesame seeds, and Italian seasoning.
The seasoning might seem like just another thing you have to add, but trust me, it’s so good. Don’t skip it.
Bake these up and you’ll soon be enjoying amazing strombolis right at home. The outside has a perfectly seasoned crust, while the inside is cheesy and spicy. Another plus, your kitchen will smell incredible.
These aren’t fancy at all, but that’s what makes this recipe SO GOOD. These doughy pockets of pleasure are the cheesy strombolis we all crave most from our favorite pizza spots…just made at home. Bonus, they’re going to be pretty darn perfect for all the upcoming fall game days.
Are you excited? I’m not quite ready just yet for fall…but I am excited!

I made this for my family tonight- 3 older kids. They all loved it. I made one exactly as the recipe and I substituted BBQ chicken (minus the blue cheese) for the second. They both were amazing. We will be making this again soon! Kids have leftovers packed for lunch too! Thanks Tieghan
Awesome! I am so glad that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for giving it a go! xTieghan
This was the perfect football food to make. Followed the directions exactly and it was delicious, cheesy, and just a little bit spicy.
We didn’t see in the instructions where to put the blue cheese so we just threw it in before we rolled the Stromboli up and that worked great.
These would be perfect to being to a party.
Happy Monday! I love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks a lot for giving it a try! The blue cheese can also be added in step 3. xTieghan
I made these twice last week! The first time the original recipe, and the second time I stuffed them with supreme pizza toppings. My family absolutely went crazy over them both times!! Even my kids who are picky eaters. We will definitely keep this in our regular rotation.
Happy Friday!! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for giving it a go:) xTieghan
I had to use a pound and a half of pizza dough. The first couple I made were stretched too thin. Maybe because it was store bought? They still turned out delicious though!
Happy Friday!! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for giving it a go:) Could be the store bought dough yes. xTieghan
This was so easy and absolutely fire! Made with friends for a fun dinner.
Fantastic! Love to hear that the recipe was enjoyed, thanks bunch for making it. Have the best weekend:) xTieghan
These were delicious! Added some pepperoncinis to the mixture for a crunch.
My only minor nit about these was the instructions for rolling them up. It took me a few different tries before I figured out how to properly roll them. Maybe a quick video??? We will definitely make these again! So good.
Awesome! Thanks a lot for making this recipe and sharing your feedback. I’m glad it was enjoyed! It’s rolled similar to a burrito. xTieghan
I made these last night and they were AWESOME! I have a question. Do you think these could be made and then frozen before baking? Would you thaw first or bake frozen (adding time). It would be a perfect make ahead meal .
Thanks a lot for giving this recipe a try, I am so glad to hear that it was enjoyed!! I think these would be totally fine to freeze and bake from frozen. xxTieghan
Another five star recipe from you!! We made these on Saturday and they were beyond amazing!! We used some leftover chicken from the night before, and purchased some pre-made dough, which made these so simple to make. 10/10 for this one!!
Awesome! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed and appreciate you giving it a go! Have a wonderful week:) xTieghan
nom nom.. these look so good.
Thanks so much Hena! xTieghan
Made this for dinner tonight and it was SO good! I shredded rotisserie chicken which worked perfectly. Also loved the blue cheese sprinkled throughout. It made 4 large Stromboli’s which should last my husband and I a few nights!
Thanks a lot for giving this recipe a try, I am so glad to hear that it was enjoyed!! xxTieghan
Made these for dinner this weekend, was a huge hit! Hubby is already asking for them again! Where can I find your homemade dough? I made my own and it was good, but would like to try yours!
Thank you! 😀
Awesome! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed and appreciate you giving it a go! The dough recipe is in the HBH Super Simple cookbook. Have a wonderful week:) xTieghan
