Pepperoni Bread

4 stars from 1 rating of Pepperoni Bread

Good as a meal or a side

Pepperoni bread is great as a meal or as a side. My family loves to have it as the main dish with a nice tossed salad on the side. It's great to take to parties. We also will make up a couple loaves when a friend loses a family member. It's easy for them to reheat and serve to guests at a time when no one wants to worry about cooking. And when you realize how easy it is to make you will be amazed!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 8-10 servings


  • 1 pkg pizza dough
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 pkg pepperoni, sliced
  • 1 egg
  • flour, to spread on dough and work area when rolling


Pizza dough usually can be bought in the grocery store in a bag that has a softball size piece of dough. It is usually sold frozen. When making pepperoni bread you need the dough at room temperature. This can be done a couple of ways. I usually just take the dough out of the freezer several hours before I plan on baking the bread and leave it out on the stove in the bag it came in. The dough will thaw and rise in the bag. You can also remove the dough from the bag and place it in a greased bowl and cover with a towel. If you do this I would recommend spraying the bowl and the dough with cooking spray. I find that the dough gets 'crusty' if you don't spray it as well as the bowl.

Putting it together

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  2. dough should be room temperature, sprinkle area with flour and roll dough out into a circle about the size of a pizza crust (dough should be between 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick once rolled)
  3. place pepperoni in thin layer completely covering dough leaving 1/2 inch around all edges
  4. spread cheese evenly across pepperoni
  5. start with one edge and roll dough up into a loaf, fold ends under to seal
  6. place loaf carefully on a baking sheet
  7. beat egg in a cup and then spread all over the outside of the loaf of bread (this makes crust crispy)
  8. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown
  9. let cool before slicing to prevent cheese from running
  10. slice in pieces as you would a loaf of bread and serve hot


All that is left is to enjoy your bread. Some of my friends call it pizza roll. You can switch out the pepperoni for other ingredients as well. We will often do pepperoni and sausage bread together. You just need to cook the sausage in a pan before putting on the dough. My mother adds peppers and onions as well. Get creative!
