Pepperoni Rolls: PIZZA IN A ROLL....Pizza Rolls!

Pepperoni Rolls

Hi everybody :)

A few years ago, I discovered Gooseberry Patch and their wonderful organization of cookbooks and more. I was delighted that I actually won a few of their cookbooks. One of them was Simple Shortcut Recipes; I won at Eat Cake for Dinner.

Jenn has a fantastic blog , great recipes, beautiful pictures, lots of followers, everything.  If you haven't heard about her blog, you must go and check it out.

Now...on to the recipe, remember the Cheddar Cheese Loaves  I prepared last week, but only cooked one loaf.  Well, I'm now ready to share what I did with the dough of the second loaf.

Pepperoni Rolls adapted Gooseberry Patch Simple Shortcut Recipes

 2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (I used Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb Seasoning and Rosemary Basil and Citrus Salt)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (omit)
1/2 teaspoon Salad Supreme                
2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed (I used 1 Cheddar Cheese Dough )
16-oz. pkg. sliced pepperoni
16-oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Mild Cheddar Cheese
Garnish: pizza sauce, warmed

In a bowl, mix eggs, seasonings and Parmesan cheese; set aside,

Roll out first loaf into a rectangle on a floured surface.

Spread half of egg mixture on top;

layer with half the pepperoni and sprinkle with half the mozzarella Cheese.
Added Pepperoni & Cheeses

Roll up jelly-roll style; place seam-side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat process for second loaf.

Before Baking

(I went ahead and cut mine before baking. I baked them for 20 minutes.)

 Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, until lightly golden. The bottom of the rolls will be browned.
Cool and cut into 2-inch slices; serve with pizza sauce. Makes 20 to 24 servings. (I made 12 buns)

What I Did and/or Think:
First, I did only half the recipe and used the prepared Cheddar Cheese Dough for the dough. I also cut the roll before baking it instead of afterward like the recipe stated. The other changes are in Italic stated above.

The Taste: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the taste of this, so did my son and his friend, they ate most of them :) These buns are basically PIZZA IN A ROLL....Pizza Rolls!  This is now my new way of making pizza, and cheese in the crust is definitely the way to go. This goes without saying, but I simply gotta say it anyway ...IT'S ANOTHER WHAT.... REPEAT!

ENJOY! Come again.....
