This has long been a family favorite, and an often requested favorite of my soon-to-be son-in-law. But it also has lots of other possibilities..think Reuben Loaf!

    pillsbury pizza or french bread loaf
  • 8-10 oz
    thinly sliced sandwich size pepperoni

How To Make pepperoni bread

  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, unroll the Pillsbury dough, carefully stretching into a uniform rectangle.
  • 2
    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.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    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.
  • 5
    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.
  • 6
    Lightly spray the loaf with cooking spray. Sprinkle with grated parmesan and the Italian spices.
  • 7
    Bake 30-45 minutes, until golden brown. We serve this with individual cups of marinara sauce.
