Pepperoni Pizza Bread
{Carson Approved}

Good Morning my friends. I was a bit under the weather the last couple days, but I think I am finally bouncing back. Now comes the fun of playing catch up on housework and blog posts.

 Pizza is a big deal in our house. It's the one meal that everyone loves and it's so easy to make. I was browsing the Rhodes website and came across a recipe for pepperoni rolls. Well I wasn't in the mood to mess with all the pizza sauce and cutting up all the rolls.

My husband was out of town and the kids and I just wanted an easy dinner meal. I decided to make this recipe into a Pepperoni Pizza Bread instead.

I omitted the pizza sauce before rolling up the dough and figured the kids could use it as a dipping sauce instead. That way if you wanted to eat the bread plain than you could.

Mr. Picky Pants Carson entered the kitchen and asked what is that mom? I said pizza bread! He said well I'm not sure if I will like it. LOL thank you Carson for your input and faith in me. I think this child was put on this planet just to annoy me at every mealtime LOL.
 

 I have never met such a picky eater in my life. I told Carson you like bread don't ya? He said yes. I said you like pizza too right? yes mom. I said than you're going to love this I just know it.

He said OK mom I will give it a try. It was so funny because after I baked up the bread and let it cool I started slicing it. The look on his face alone was so funny.

His face just lit up with a smile. He said look at the swirls that's so cool mom. Cool and Mom in one sentence score for me!!!

I told Carson I bet I can get cooler. Look you can take a piece and dip it into pizza sauce and then eat it. Carson is the king on dipping so I knew he would love that part.
 

He told me mom I like this can you make it again tomorrow? LOL I told him why don't we wait till daddy comes back home and then we can make it so he can enjoy it too.

I'm happy to say we have made this yummy pizza bread twice in one week. My husband told me I can see why Carson loves this pizza bread so much. 


That's some good stuff. I have to say I really like using the pizza sauce to dip the pizza bread into instead of rolled into the bread.

In usual fashion I have included some step by step photos. Spray the counter with non stick spray. Roll out the thawed bread dough into a rectangle (about 10 x 16). Brush dough with olive oil.

Arrange pepperonis and mozzarella cheese over the dough. Roll up dough like a jelly roll and pinch seam to seal; place, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet.

Brush the top with a bit more olive oil and sprinkle on Parmesan cheese. Let dough rest for about 45 minutes in a warm place.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 - 40 minutes, or until golden brown and the bread is cooked through. Let cool and slice with a bread knife.

Mackenzie and her friend wanted me to take a photo of them enjoying their pizza bread. From their smiles I think they loved it.


Dip pizza bread into prepared pizza sauce and enjoy.
