  1. Allow frozen bread dough to thaw approximately 8 hours, or overnight, in the refrigerator. Place dough in a large, lightly greased bowl. Place bowl in a warm location, and allow dough to rise until doubled (2 to 3 hours). Punch down dough.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly greased, large baking sheet, roll dough into an approximately 12x18 inch rectangle. Brush dough lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with basil, onion flakes and oregano. Layer with pepperoni to within a half inch of the edges. Top with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Beginning with the longest edge, roll dough into a thin cylinder and seal seam. Glaze with egg.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Cut into bite sized pieces to serve.

This is good but I like to put the cheese on first and then the pepperoni so that the cheese will melt onto the bread. It is also good with provolone cheese and ham.

Great recipe. Eveyrone liked it. Make sure to put the seam side of the bread down on the pan.

Something happened to my bread dough during the day -- totally flat so I had to scurry and quickly defrost another loaf. This was a little more labor intensive than I thought it would be. Used o...

Very good recipe. I added some cooked italian sausage, the family loved it!

this recipe was great! everyone loved it. I would suggest using a little less pepperoni and cheese than what it calls for - because it came out VERY cheese and a little hard to handle/eat.

Delicious! A meal in itself!

This is an excellent recipe. I made my own homemade bread from my Kitchen Aid mixer so I proofed up the bread again after adding pepperoni and cheese. I also had (warm) pizza sauce for dipping...

Also good with chicken and feta or parmesan in place of the pepperoni and mozzerella.
