Pepperoni bread (aka pepperoni roll or stromboli) has always been a special treat for me. In my Italian family in southern New Jersey, we all savored pepperoni bread!This recipe makes enough dough for 2 loaves of pepperoni bread (you'll have to double the fillings though). So, my recommendation is to either double the "fillings" or save the other half of the dough to make a homemade pizza!

Pizza Dough:
1-1/4 c warm water
1 tsp granulated sugar
2 tsp instant yeast
2 Tbsp olive oil
3-1/2 c flour
1-1/4 tsp salt
Filling:
5 oz pepperoni ( sliced thin )
1 lb mozzarella cheese ( grated or cut into thin strips )
1/4 c Parmesan cheese ( grated )
1 large egg ( beaten )
2 Tbsp butter ( melted )
Your favorite Italian spices and herbs (garlic powder, oregano, basil, etc)
16 slices
