Pepperoni Bread – refrigerated pizza dough, pepperoni and provolone cheese rolled up to make one heck of an appetizer. Remember the marinara for dunking! Pair 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.
My pictures from the beginning sure left a lot to be desired, but this recipe is one I make again and again and again.
I think you will, too.
This will definitely be served on Sunday while we watch those AFC and NFC finals. This bread is just something that is so great to snack on and there’s never any left when I make it.
I’ll make it when we go to parties because it’s a great finger food. I’ll also serve it with a salad and some buttered pasta for dinner. Either way, the family and everyone who’s eaten some loves it.
We’ve also eaten it with some bottled marinara, but our preferred dipping sauce is just a bottle of Good Seasons Italian Dressing. It’s SOOOO good!!

This Sunday, I’m also looking forward to serving these Touchdown Taco Cups, and Sheet Pan Loaded Chicken Nachos. Of course, you have to have some wings, so we’ll be eating these Black & Blue Chicken Wings.
In the past, I have used Pillsbury French Bread loaves, but wasn’t nuts about the taste. I’ve gotten good results with packaged bread dough or the canisters of pizza dough I’ve gotten from grocery stores.
My best results have been with pizza dough from restaurants or from dough that I’ve made myself. If you have a favorite place just ask them if they’ll sell some to you. There’s a great pizza place that we fell in love with up near my daughter’s college and I asked them if they sold their dough. They charged me $5 per bag which I thought was worth it because it saved me the trouble of making it and I LOVED the taste.
I have this habit which drives my kids nuts when we go out for pizza. When I get down to the crust, I tear it open, stick my nose in it and take a deep whiff.
Aaaaahhhhhhhh, it’s so awesome!
Many times I’ve heard from the kids as they’re rolling they’re eyes, “Here she goes again”. It’s a ritual, what can I say?
So if you find a place you like, ask them!
Here’s one of my first pictures showing you how to place the pepperoni and cheese on the dough.
If you like this Pepperoni Bread, serve these at your next party, too..
Get Game Day ready with these great video ideas, too!
I give you BIG baking hugs and muffins!!
