Cin's Version of Pepperoni-Cheese Loaf

Straws Kitchen


This makes a huge long roll.
Makes the whole house smell wonderful while baking...yummmmO.

Next time I think I'll add some capers inside, I love the taste of capers.

Would also be good to add chopped sauteed bell peppers, onions...etc.

Possibilities are endless...make it with your own favorite ingredients.

How to Make Cin's Version of Pepperoni-Cheese Loaf


  • 1Preheat oven to 350dF.
  • 2Roll out thawed dough on a 13 x 11 inch oiled pan (cookie sheet or a jelly roll pan will do) and let it raise for about 20 minutes.
    After the bread was spread out into the pan (and risen for the 20min's) I sprayed liquid garlic over the dough, I did not use any sauce in-on this one.
  • 3Arrange Provolone cheese over entire surface of dough (after you spritz it with the garlic oil).
  • 4Next, start layering, first the pepperoni, then some of the shredded cheddar, then the 4-Mexican Cheese blend and end with the rest of the shredded Cheddar on top.
    (this time I used the provolone cheese, cheddar cheese and the 4-cheese Mexican mix cheeses...inside w he pepperoni).
  • 5Sprinkled chives on top of this before ''rolling-up''.
  • 6Roll the whole thing up jelly-roll style and pinch edges and ends to seal.
  • 7Brush the entire top with the egg white and sprinkled shredded 3-cheese mix of parmesan, romano & asiago over the top of the egg wash.
  • 8Then lightly sprinkle garlic powder, sea salt and dill weed on top.
  • 9Just before placing into over make slits slanted across top of loaf (to let out steam while baking).
  • 10Bake at 350 dF for 30 minutes (if dough is getting too brown, loosely cover wfoil).
  • 11Cool on cooling rack, then slice. Serve warm with a sauce for dipping (it doesn't really need to be dipped but if you like it that all means do so).
  • 12Enjoy!!!
