Kitchen Tips Share: Reheat Stromboli With The 5 Best Ways


Stromboli is a popular dish in every family; however, sometimes, you might not eat the full serving. You need to warm up the leftover and make sure that it tastes as good as it did when you first cooked it. 

This article will go through five different ways to reheat Stromboli and still enjoy their original taste.

How To Reheat Stromboli?

Below are the five best ways to warm up your delicious snack that we’re already tried. Let’s see how each method works and how you can proceed with our step-by-step guide!

Using an oven

It’s natural to think that everyone would use an oven for accomplishing this task! We must consider that it will help warm up our dough completely. In addition, we will not run into situations wherein we’ll find parts of the dough frozen or undercooked.

Using a convection oven, in this case, is the best way to achieve success. It not only shortens the time but also makes for a crispy and golden crust.


However, make sure that you preheat using convection mode before putting the food in for about five minutes at about 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Set the temperature at 350F for some minutes to preheat the oven.
  • Brush a little oil or melted butter on the dough and place it on an oven-safe dish.
  • Put the dish in the oven, set the timer for 20 minutes, or you can wait until it becomes golden.

Using an air fryer

The air fryer is one of the healthiest methods of cooking. With it, you can warm up your snack while preserving its tenderness and juiciness, but you may also get to enjoy that crispy taste on your dough. 

Furthermore, since there is no frying involved in this cooking method, the food does not absorb unnecessary oil when using an air fryer. You can add a light coat of oil to enhance the taste, but no oil does not matter.

  • Set the temperature at 400 F for about 4-6 minutes to preheat the air fryer.
  • Brush some oil or melted butter on the outside layer of the dough (optional) and put it in the air fryer basket. 
  • Cook for 20 -30 minutes if it’s frozen; if it’s already defrosted, you can cook it in 6 – 8 minutes.
  • When the time’s off, wait for 1 – 3 minutes before taking it out for serving.

Using a microwave

If you need to heat something you’ve previously refrigerated, most people usually immediately reach for their microwaves. A microwave is convenient, quick, and works so well to warm up this snack or any similar dishes.


We especially love this method because it also helps keep the food’s moisture, so your reheated dough stays nice and warm while never getting soggy!

  • Please make sure that your food is already defrosted and reaches room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare a microwave-safe dish, put your food on it, and put everything into the microwave.
  • Set the power to 50% and warm it up for a minute or more (if your piece is big), depending on how crispy you want it to be.
  • Open the microwave and let it sit there a few minutes before serving.

Using a skillet

Although cooking Stromboli in a skillet may seem like the quickest way to reheat it, it actually takes a lot of care. 

One must pay extra attention to ensure that the crust does not get burnt; otherwise, you run the risk of throwing it out. The same goes for letting the filling get cold.

  • Heat non-stick saucepans on the stove, using medium heat.
  • Once you’ve prepped the food and placed it in the hot skillet, let it cook until crispy – generally 2 minutes.
  • Flip it over and adjust the heat to a low level; repeat until you reach a satisfactory result.
  • You can also spray some water into the skillet. Cover it with a lid and allow the steam to warm the food. 
  • Please switch off the stove and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Your food is ready to eat!

Using a slow cooker (crockpot)

It would not be a good choice for some people to choose a crockpot to warm up your dough. If using a crockpot, the inside of the dish will remain moist and tender — exactly what you wouldn’t want if you wanted a perfectly crisp and flaky stromboli. 

Nevertheless, using a crockpot is a wise choice if you prefer the dough to have a softer texture while the filling is runny.


And please remember, never use the cooker in slow-cooking mode because it might burn all the ingredients.

  • Using this method, you don’t need to defrost your food in advance; simply put everything in the crock insert.
  • Spray some oil or melted butter on the dough’s surface if you want it more crispy.
  • Cook for about 20 -30 minutes if your food is frozen; shorter time for defrosted Stromboli (about 10 – 15 minutes).
  • Take it out and enjoy!

What Is The Best Method To Reheat Stromboli?

In most cases, your best bet for reheating this snack is in an ordinary oven! 

Unlike most foods, Stromboli tastes best when heated up in the oven rather than the microwave. This method yields the best outcome when it comes down to texture and flavor, reminding you of just how delicious your Stromboli tastes at its prime.

When reheating, make sure it comes under the broiler at least 2 minutes before taking it out. It will result in an even more tasty finish. 

Although reheating Stromboli in the right way can help retain its flavor and texture, most people will notice a distinct difference between freshly made pieces and leftovers, so we recommend heating or eating it within an hour of the first use!
