Pepperoni Bread is delicious as a side to a salad or for a school lunch. Using frozen bread dough makes this recipe soooo easy. I think it would freeze well also, but we never seem to have any left-over to freeze.
1 (1 pound) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed (I prefer the Brigford brand)
1 egg, beaten
4 ounces sliced pepperoni
1 cup shredded cheese (mozzarella - or whatever else you generally prefer on pizza)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 to 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll thawed bread dough out into a rectangle.
Brush dough with beaten egg.
Place pepperoni and the cheese evenly on the dough. Sprinkle on the Italian seasoning if desired.
Roll up dough like a jelly roll and pinch the seams to seal.
Place roll seam side down on a greased baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and cooked through. Slice on a diagonal with a bread knife when cooled.
