Pepperoni Pizza Loaf Recipe

Publisher Photo
This savory stromboli relies on frozen bread dough, so it comes together in no time. The golden loaf is stuffed with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers and olives. I often add a few slices of ham, too. It's tasty served with warm pizza sauce for dipping. —Jenny Brown, West Lafayette, Indiana

Incredibly easy to make & so yummy! Tastes like something you would get at a deli & sandwich restaraunt. I left out the peppers, olives & mushrooms & ate it plain, without the pizza sauce as a dip.

This was very good. I actually made this a day ahead and froze it. I took it out of freezer to thaw a couple hours before I baked it and it turned out great. Since I was making it for a party and needed to do it ahead and the recipe said not to let it raise

This was delicious! I can't wait to make it for our Super Bowl party!

Delicious! I'm glad someone said the pickled peppers made the loaf, otherwise I would not have bought them to add. I omitted the parmesan, mushrooms and eggs due to preference & allergies. Also, I made two loaves, one with only pepperoni & mozza for filling, the other with bell peppers and pickled peppers as well. Both were very good. If my family gets their way I will make this often.
