Pepperoni Bread

For all those who enjoyed my Pizza! Pizza! post Ihave another great recipe using the same basic pizza dough!

The pizza dough recipe can be found here

Along with the dough you will need. . .

1lb of Mozzarella cheese

1lb of Chedder 30-40 pepperoni slices (or as much as you want)

And anything else you want!

I usually double the recipe so as to make four breads. If you make a doubled version and only eat 1 or 2, that's fine! These make great left overs, and they freeze really well!

After mixing the dough and letting it rise, I place the dough onto a well floured counter and form it into a nice round ball. Then I cut the dough into four pieces.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. These take about 20 minutes to cook.

To make a loaf of Pizza Bread I first roll one of the sections out into a rectangular shape (ok, I try to!)

Next I put about a hand full of cheese on the top portion,

Then I fold the dough over the cheese,

Next part is easy! More cheese!!

Now you can add pepperonis!

My mom doesn't care for Pepperonis, so we make her plain cheese,
OK, now you are ready to fold the dough over again, add more cheese and pepperoni!
Next fold in the ends and place on a well greased pan!
they should look like this. . .

They should look like "logs", now I add slits to the top, and brush on an egg wash (1 egg beaten)
Ok, I pop these into the oven! I set the timer for 10 minutes, afterwards I then switch the pans from the bottom rack to top, and the top to bottom. I set the timer for 10 more minutes.

OK! by now they smell soooo good!!!

The finished products! The egg wash gives the breads a "shine"!
Allright! Being very careful (these are very hot!) I cut the loaves into 2'' slices. I place them on a nice large platter and viola! Dinner is served and boy does it smell good! You could add chips, but this usually satisfies by itself. (yes, including my two teenage brothers!)

Doesn't that look good??
These are great plain, or dipped in warm sauce or Ranch dressing.
So enjoy, and let me know if you try this!!

God bless!
