Pepperoni Pizza Bread (Kid Friendly)

This Pepperoni Pizza Bread comes together easily using frozen bread dough, Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
Good Morning my friends. I've been a little under the weather the last couple days, but I think I'm finally bouncing back. Now comes the time of playing  catch up on housework, chores and blog posts. Pizza is the one meal that everyone in my house loves.  A couple weeks back while browsing the Rhodes bread website, I cam across a recipe for pepperoni rolls. 

I didn't want to fuss with stuffing all the dinner rolls, so I simplified the recipe a bit and and used frozen bread dough instead. I omitted the pizza sauce before rolling up the dough and figured the kids could use it as a dipping sauce. My kids love this Pepperoni Pizza Bread and always ask me to make it. 

Let's get started on the step-by-step photos. Start by spraying 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 pepperoni slices and mozzarella cheese over the dough. Roll up dough like a jelly roll and pinch the 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.


Serve with pizza sauce on the side for dipping.

I am from West Virginia where pepperoni rolls originated. The early coal miners needed sandwiches in their buckets but they always fell apart so the Italian wives rolled the pepperoni in their homemade bread dough and made individual rolls with pepperoni and sometimes cheese included. There is a running feud as to which bakery was the original and best.

Popped it in the oven and realized....I never used the olive oil. Hope it's not absolutely necessary.

Buy pizza dough at supermarket.
Mix cheeses(mozzarella, Monterey Jack,mixed Italian cheese bag)in large bowl, chop up some of the pepperoni add pepper and one egg. Cooked Italian hot sausage is a great add.
Roll crust as thin as you can make it.
Spread your cheese mixture,Add more pepperoni.
Roll, brush with oil, cook.
Freezes great, wrap in foil, reheat in foil.
