Pepperoni Rolls


Pepperoni slices
mozzarella cheese slices
garlic powder
favorite bread recipe
marinara sauce


Make up your favorite bread recipe (see note below). Roll your dough into well floured 10 inch circles. Off center on the circle, place a thick slice of cheese, a layer of pepperoni, another slice of cheese, and another layer of pepperoni. Fold sides in to cover filling. Fold over short side and roll tightly with the ingredients completely inside. Brush garlic powder and butter mixed together on outside of the dough. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet with the seam side down. Bake at 350 deg about 30 minutes or until nicely browned. Allow to cool. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.

Note: Frozen bread dough works nicely for this. Just allow dough to thaw but not to rise. Cut each loaf into three pieces, flatten and proceed as above. No need to allow it to rise after rolling. I have not tried it, but I’ll bet pre-prepared pizza dough would work as well.
