Pepperoni bread, also known as Pepperoni rolls is a staple in Western Pennsylvania. Frozen bread dough covered with sliced pepperoni and shredded mozzarella, then rolled and baked. These pepperoni rolls are a fun pizza without sauce. Super simple to make and require just three basic ingredients.

I am a huge fan of this pepperoni bread. I always whip up a big batch especially when my kids’ friends are coming over. They are super fun to make, the easiest form of pizza you can make any time without a fuss!

Ingredients

12 to 14 oz (340.2 grams) sliced pepperoni

24 oz (680.39 grams) shredded mozzarella

3 lb (1.36 kg) package Rhodes frozen bread dough

How to make Pepperoni Bread

Step 1: For thawing/rising frozen bread dough, follow the package directions.

Step 2: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, line two baking sheets, and set aside.

Step 3: In half, cut each loaf of dough. Keep half of the dough under a plastic wrap that has been greased with non-stick cooking spray. Into a thin rectangle about 7 x 12 inches, roll the other dough. Top it with sliced pepperoni followed by sprinkles of shredded mozzarella. Tightly roll the dough, beginning with the long side, pinching the seams and ends to seal. On the prepared sheet, transfer the rolled dough and do the same with the rest of the dough.

Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 35 to 45 minutes. When done, take the dish out of the oven and let the bread cool for a little before serving.

Notes:

These pepperoni rolls are great to serve warm or at room temperature.

For any leftovers, you can keep them in resealable plastic bags at room temperature or store them in the fridge for up to 5 days.

You can also freeze the pepperoni rolls. Wrap them in plastic wrap, then aluminium foil, and freeze for up to 1 month.
