• Pre-packaged frozen dough [I prefer rhodes].
• Shredded cheese [mexi-blend or mozzerella].
• Parmesan cheese.
• Pepperoni or whatever other pizza topping you like.
• Some herbs.
• Olive oil.
How to Make:
-Loosely cover the frozen bread dough with plastic wrap.
-Allow dough to thaw for a few hours at room temperature.
-Roll dough out to approximately 11x11square.
-One frozen dough log makes one pepperoni roll.
-Brush dough with olive oil or whatever cooking oil you prefer.
-Lay pepperoni on dough covering entire surface.I like to use sandwich pepperoni from the deli. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
-Next, sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese. You can use grated from a can if that is what you already have on hand..but you can buy the shredded Parmesan in a bag.You’ll find it right next to the other bags of shredded cheese. Wal Mart sells it for (2$) and it is very good. I like using the shredded Parmesan in the bag because the flavor is so much better!
-Lightly sprinkle with Italian herbs,..basically, some dried oregano, parsley and basil. Be careful, not too much,..oregano can be very strong and you don’t want too much!
-Add a sprinkling of garlic powder. I was all out of garlic powder, so I used garlic salt.
-Roll up dough starting at one edge of square.
-Place rolls on baking sheet, leaving space between.
-Brush some melted butter on top of uncooked pepperoni roll.(You do not need to let rise).
-Bake it right away. It will rise up in the oven perfectly.
-Bake at 375°F for approx. 15 to 25 mins. Oven temps. and times may vary.
-When done, top of roll should be golden brown and you should be able to make a tapping sound on the crust with your fingernail,…just the same as when baking bread. Make sure you allow pepperoni roll to cool completely before serving.
