Pepperoni Bread



  • pre-packaged frozen dough (I prefer rhodes)
  • shredded cheese (mexi-blend or mozzerella)
  • parmesan cheese
  • pepperoni or whatever other pizza topping you like
  • some herbs
  • olive oil


How to Make It

  • Loosely cover the frozen bread dough with plastic wrap.
  • Allow dough to thaw for a few hours at room temperature.
  • Roll dough out to approximately 11 x 11 square.
  • One frozen dough log makes one pepperoni roll.
  • Brush dough with olive oil or whatever cooking oil you prefer.
  • Lay pepperoni on dough covering entire surface. I like to use sandwich pepperoni from the deli. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Next, sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese. You can use grated from a can if that is what you already have on hand...but you can buy the shredded Parmesan in a bag.You'll find it right next to the other bags of shredded cheese. Wal Mart sells it for $1.99 and it is very good. I like using the shredded Parmesan in the bag because the flavor is so much better!
  • Lightly sprinkle with Italian herbs...basically, some dried oregano, parsley and basil. Be careful, not too much....oregano can be very strong and you don't want too much!
  • Add a sprinkling of garlic powder. I was all out of garlic powder, so I used garlic salt.
  • Roll up dough starting at one edge of square.
  • Place rolls on baking sheet, leaving space between.
  • Brush some melted butter on top of uncooked pepperoni roll. You do not need to let rise.
  • Bake it right away. It will rise up in the oven perfectly.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for approx. 15 to 25 minutes. Oven temps. and times may vary.
  • When done, top of roll should be golden brown and you should be able to make a tapping sound on the crust with your fingernail...just the same as when baking bread. Make sure you allow pepperoni roll to cool completely before serving.
