Pizza Bread

Several weeks ago I got this simple yet delicious recipe from a friend at MOPS.  It is a real family pleaser.  I have made it several times since, and most recently for a friend who just had a baby.  It is basically a loaf of frozen bread dough (thawed of course), with an egg mixture, pepperoni, and cheese, all rolled into a long log and baked.  Of course any meat and cheese combo could do.  I have tried it with ham and swiss cheese and it was very good!  Mix it up if you want and be creative!

Start by rolling out your thawed dough into a large long rectangle and brushing 2/3rds of the egg mixture on it...

Next, top with a generous layer of pepperoni...

Then a generous amount of pizza blend cheese...(I used not quite a 2 cup bag.)

Roll up into a log and place seam side down on a greased cookie sheet.  A "U" shape works well.  Brush the remaining 1/3 egg mixture over the top of the bread...

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees...this one split open a bit in the middle...

Slice and enjoy!

Serve with a pizza sauce to dip and a nice salad for a complete meal!

Pizza Bread 

1 loaf frozen bread or pizza dough (I used Rhodes brand frozen pizza dough loaves...), thawed according to package directions
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup parmesan cheese sprinkles
A few sprinkles of salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Pepperoni slices
Pizza Blend cheese (Almost a 2 cup bag of shredded will do...)

Pizza Sauce for dipping (optional)

When bread dough is thawed and ready to use, roll it out on a floured surface to a large/long rectangle.  Mix in a small bowl the egg, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.  Brush 2/3 of the egg mixture on the dough.  Lay down a generous amount of pepperoni, and top with the cheese.  Roll tightly into a long log and transfer to a greased baking sheet.  Brush the remaining 1/3 egg mixture over the top of the bread.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and cooked completely through.  Slice and enjoy!
