A hoagie roll or hero roll is a type of long flat roll used to prepare hoagie sandwiches.[1][2][3] Some hoagie roll dough is fermented prior to baking.[1] Hoagie rolls are sometimes toasted before being used to prepare a sandwich.[4][5]

Ingredients used in hoagie roll preparation may include flour, egg, milk, vegetable oil, salt, sugar and yeast.[1][3] Some versions include sesame seeds atop the roll, which may add extra flavor and textural elements.[6] Gluten-free[7] and vegan[8] hoagie roll recipes have been devised.

The hoagie roll is used to prepare the Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich[9][10][11] and various other submarine sandwiches.
