This Pepperoni Bread with easy homemade pizza dough, pepperoni, and provolone cheese makes one heck of an easy and delicious appetizer. Remember the marinara or Good Season’s Italian dressing for dunking!
Serve this as a game day appetizer or pair your it with a salad, and some buttered pasta and you’ve got a great and easy weeknight dinner.
This post was Day 3 in my original 365 Days of Baking. Wow!
My pictures from the beginning sure left a lot to be desired, but this pepperoni bread recipe is one I make again and again and again. I think you will, too.
13.8 ounces package refrigerated pizza dough
6 ounces sliced pepperoni
8 ounces sliced provolone cheese
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and prepare a rimmed baking sheet by spraying it with cooking spray.
Remove the pizza dough from the canister and roll it out onto a lightly floured surface or parchment so that it measures into a rectangle about 10 X 15 – inches.
Beginning at one of the longer ends, place the pepperoni in an overlapping layer down the length of the dough.
Tear a few of the provolone slices in half and place over the pepperoni.
Pull the dough up from under the pepperoni and roll it over the cheese so that it sticks to the dough beyond the pepperoni.
Repeat adding the pepperoni and cheese and rolling until you have completely rolled the dough.
Place the roll seam side down onto the prepared rimmed baking sheet. You may have to curve it so that it fits.
In a microwavable-safe bowl, melt the butter for about 30 seconds.
Mix in the garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
Brush completely over the Pepperoni Bread.
Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until lightly golden.
Remove to a large cutting board to set for about 3 – 5 minutes before cutting to serve.
