Pepperoni Bread

I saw this recipe and thought since it looked so easy it might be a nice, quick dinner. I guess quick is a relative term, especially since it takes about 5 hours or so to thaw the frozen bread dough. Once the dough was thawed it was relatively simple to put together. Just three easy ingredients: frozen bread dough, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese.

I have to admit though, I was a bit disappointed. After having made stromboli a few months ago this was a bit boring in comparison. Easier, but not quite the variety. I think next time I would add some marinara and some other toppings with the pepperoni.

1 loaf frozen bread dough
Sliced pepperoni
Shredded mozzarella cheese

Thaw the frozen bread dough and allow to rise.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut the dough in half and roll out two rectangles. Layer the pepperoni on the dough, and then cover with mozzarella cheese. Roll up lengthwise and seal the ends and seam and place seam-side down on the baking sheet.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
