Pepperoni Pizza Loaf Recipe
- 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.
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.

Reviews for Pepperoni Pizza Loaf
"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."
"This is my MOST favorite take on pizza, ever. The egg wash of spice blend is superb & it's a family favorite!I raved about this recipe in a blog post:http://mydarlingdays.blogspot.com/2015/08/make-pizza-loaf.html?_sm_au_=iVVs0PcHkMckLSMrThank you for sharing & keep the yummy eats coming! :)"
"Perfect and delicious. Peppers made it. Could use whatever toppings you like."
"Great and easy"
"This was great for snacking with friends watching football!"
"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!!!"
"SO good! I made this exactly as directed, and everyone loved it."
"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."
"Yummy family loved"
"When I made this, I left out the pepper rings, and the olives. The whole family enjoyed it. My husband requested that I cut down the amount of pepperoni, and add some sausage. I will be making this again."
"My loaf turned out just like the picture. I made my dough in the bread machine instead of using frozen dough. Used 1/4 cup HOT banana pepper rings. That was plenty of heat. Will be making this again."
"This was so good. A great base recipe to have that would easily be altered to fit your tastes."
"I have been making a similar recipe for years. Using frozen bread dough. I use pizza sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese. Delicious!!"
"Delicious! Loved the variety of ingredients stuffed inside. Husband wanted to eat more but decided to stop before he made himself sick :) Would definitely make again."
"I have made the recipe several times and everyone loves it. One of my favorite recipes by far."
"Soooooo good! I usually hate anything pickled, but the pickled pepper rings make this pizza. Way better pizza than what you get at the pizza restaurants!"
"This is one our family's favorite recipes. We make it with black olives, pepperoni and mushrooms."
"Fast and Delicious! I left out the olives and the pickled pepper rings but didn't even miss them. A very stuffed pizza loaf!"
"My family loves this recipe. 2 loaves feeds a family of 7 with leftovers for breakfast :)"
"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. Thanks for sharing."
"Delicious and easy to make. Easy to change flavors to make your own."
