Pepperoni Rolls Were a Hit!


Easy dinner tonight! These pepperoni rolls are great as an appetizer or as a meal with a side salad. You could even eat them in place of garlic bread with a pasta meal if you leave out the pepperoni.

I used three loaves of frozen bread dough. I placed them on a cookie sheet and covered them loosely with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray. I let the loaves thaw for about 3 hours. They do not need to rise. Once thawed, I rolled each loaf into an approximately 11×11 square. Then I brushed on olive oil and added a layer of pepperoni. Then I covered with a layer of shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese followed by a layer of mozzarella cheese and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. You can use as much or as little cheese as you like and really whatever kind you like best. Next, I sprinkled on some garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
