Pepperoni Pizza Loaf Recipe

Pepperoni Pizza Loaf Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounces sliced pepperoni
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup pickled pepper rings
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. On a greased baking sheet, roll out dough into a 15x10-in. rectangle. In a small bowl, combine the egg yolks, Parmesan cheese, oil, parsley, oregano, garlic powder and pepper. Brush over the dough.
  • 2. Sprinkle with the pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, pepper rings, green pepper and olives. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal and tuck ends under.
  • 3. Place seam side down; brush with egg whites. Do not let rise. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Warm the pizza sauce; serve with sliced loaf.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled unsliced pizza loaf in heavy-duty foil. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before reheating. Remove from foil and reheat loaf on a greased baking sheet in a preheated 325° oven until heated through. Serve as directed. Yield: 10-12 slices.

"This has been a family favorite for years! The frozen dough is a little hard to work with at first, but I think it is better than the refrigerated dough."

"Yum yum yum. I use refrigerated pizza dough most of the time with this recipe instead of frozen just for convenience, but it's great either way. Very good and simple to prepare. In fact, we are having it again tonight!"

"I have made a version of this for almost 40 years. I use toppings I like. I recently started making my own fresh pizza dough. It is cheaper and cuts down on the prep time by several hours since I don't have to wait for frozen bread to thaw and rise. When I started making this, I had to freeze 1/2 the loaf for later. Now I double and triple the recipe and there are never any leftovers. My kids are grown now but bring their chidren and their friends over. They all gobble it up."

"Extremely good!! This recipe was a hit at our family gathering. I made a variety of stromboli with this being at the top of the favorite list. I did not use the frozen bread dough as I didn't want to get a 5 package at this time so substituted a tube of crusty french bread dough with very good results. The substitution is the only reason I left off a star for my rating but it was a 5 in my book as I made it!!!"

"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."

"My family really enjoyed this recipe, and we plan to make this pizza over and over again (using various combinations of ingredients). My children, pizzaholics, actually stated they prefer this pizza over the pizza they've had from well-known pizza establishments. This is quite a compliment as they are truly pizza connoisseurs.
