  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Roll the dough into an 10-inch square on a well-floured surface. Arrange half of the pepperoni over top, and sprinkle evenly with half of the mozzarella cheese. Arrange the remaining pepperoni over the cheese, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Fold the left third of the dough over the middle third, then fold the right third on top of that. Fold the top and bottom ends over the bread so the edges meet in the center. Drizzle the bread with olive oil, and place seam-side-down onto a nonstick baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the bread is golden brown and crusty, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool before slicing.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Everyone makes their own style of pepperoni bread. I like to double up on my pepperoni. Folding it this way allows me to slice it like a loaf and then possible again down the middle for smaller bite size pieces for kids.
  • If you would prefer low in fat, use turkey pepperoni. If you are a vegetarian, you can swap out the pepperoni for spinach.

I am rating this a 5, but I don't use cheese when I make my pepperoni rolls/bread. You can also use frozen bread rolls to make individual ones. And, before putting in the oven brush with a beaten egg & milk for a nice shiny color on top.

I found this to be a little lacking in flavor, even though I put the olive oil on the dough prior to layering and sprinkled chopped garlic and a little oregano.

We've been making this for many years to rave reviews. Our slight differences are: roll like a jelly roll (and seal ends and seam) instead of folding, and the addition of a generous handful each of chopped onion and green pepper to the filling.

Excellent. Everyone loved it. Added Italian Seasoning to the cheese and sprinkled parmesan cheese on the top before baking.

So easy and nice presentation for dinner parties or to take as an appetizer for a potluck! I do add a few changes:I sprinkle a small amount of italian seasoning to the filling, and I roll the dough like a jelly roll. I then spread egg white over the top of the dough for a nice, shiny and golden look. Perfecto!

This was really good. I added a little bit of sauce, Italian seasoning and some parmesan. Very easy to make and very quick. It was a little greasy so it might be better to use turkey pepperoni.

This was gone so fast. Rolled it up jelly roll style. I will be making this again!
