Have you ever had pepperoni rolls? When I was in college, my mom would make them and send them back to school with me. I would eat them for days: it was a touch of homemade food in my life and they were delicious. Well this pepperoni bread is like one giant pepperoni roll. I think it's easier to make than dozens of the smaller version, and it tastes just as good. Have a great weekend!
12 frozen bread dough balls
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp parsley flakes
4 oz sliced pepperoni
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine dough balls and roll/pat into a 12x18-inch rectangle. Combine butter with seasonings. Brush mixture on dough, reserving a small amount to brush on top later. Arrange pepperoni on top of seasoning mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Beginning with a long side, roll up dough jelly roll style. Tuck ends under and place, seam side down, on a large sprayed baking sheet.
Brush with reserved seasoning mixture. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut several vents in the top. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise 30 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
