Pepperoni bread

Pepperoni Bread

I made two loaves of pepperoni bread this weekend for tailgating before a football game.  By all accounts, it was a big hit.  I’ve never made it before but it was certainly easy enough.  You only need three ingredients and some time, and you end up with a crowd-pleaser.  I also sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese on top just to pretty it up a bit, but you don’t have to.  We also served the bread with a side of warm pizza sauce.  Kind of like a stuffed breadstick that way, eh?

Recipe:  Pepperoni Bread

(adapted slightly from Pete Bakes!)

1 loaf of frozen bread dough

2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

8 oz. sliced pepperoni

1 egg

1 Tbsp. water

Parmesan cheese for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Thaw one loaf of frozen bread dough according to package directions.  (I also let the bread rise, following package directions.) Divide in half and roll or pat dough into two rectangles.  Layer with pepperoni and cheese.  Roll from the long sides like a jelly roll and pinch to seal.  (I actually just folded mine over once and sealed it, then rolled the loaf so the seal was on the bottom.) Whisk together egg and water; brush on top of loaves.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.  Cut into slices.  Serve with warm pizza sauce, if desired.

    Yum.. My family would really go for this. Of course I would have to make individual ones or my son would eat it all by himself.

    i wouldn’t mind taking a massive bite of your creation here. rolled up pizza is just as tasty and much less messy. :)
