How to Make Pepperoni Bread
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, unroll the Pillsbury dough, carefully stretching into a uniform rectangle.
- Beginning at one end of the rectangle, place the pepperoni slices over top of the dough, overlapping just a little bit. Leave a small strip of dough at one end without pepperoni, you'll use this as your end seam to seal the loaf.
- Next, sprinkle the shredded cheese over the pepperoni. My family likes a lot of cheese, but you may find that 2 cups is enough for you.
- Now you want to roll the dough to make a long log shape, beginning at the covered end and rolling to the uncovered end of the triangle.
- Place the loaf, seam side down, on a rimmed baking sheet. With a serrated knife, place 3-4 cuts in the dough to vent the loaf...this is an important step...if you don't do this the loaf could break open.
- Lightly spray the loaf with cooking spray. Sprinkle with grated parmesan and the Italian spices.
- Bake 30-45 minutes, until golden brown. We serve this with individual cups of marinara sauce.
