Recipe-Pepperoni Bread

Pepperoni bread has been a favorite in my family since I was a kid. It is super easy to make and is sure to be a big hit every time. I can't tell you how many football Sundays, office parties and potlucks this baby has made an appearance at and there is never a piece left over.

1 loaf Frozen white bread dough (Riches makes on and Shoppers Food Warehouse has their store brand as well)
1 pound sliced pepperoni
8 ounces mozzarella (shredded works just fine)

Let bread dough thaw and rise per package instructions (I typically start thawing the day before). Roll dough out flat on flowered surface. Put down one layer of pepperoni, one of cheese, another of pepperoni, one more of cheese, then a final one of pepperoni. Pull edges up around pepperoni and cheese and seal together to close all of the ingredients into a loaf. I find a little water or egg helps the edges to stick together.

Flip the loaf over so the seam side is down and place on a baking sheet. I recommend a baking sheet with a lip as more often than not, the loaf will spring a leak and pepperoni grease may come out.

Bake at 350degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes until the top of the loaf is golden.
