My mother made the pepperoni rolls for me when I was growing up. I loved pepperoni and would walk around the house munching on stick pepperoni. One she made the rolls for me as a snack and I feel in love with them. If you like, add some chopped-up veggies to the rolls. —Wendy Steiner, Suwanee, Georgia


  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 stick (6-1/2 ounces) pepperoni, cut into 32 slices
  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 32 cubes
  • 1 jar (14 ounces) pizza sauce, warmed


  1. Divide 1 loaf of dough into 16 pieces; roll each into a 3-in. circle. Place a piece of pepperoni and a cheese cube in the center of each circle. Fold all edges together; press to seal. Place rolls, seam side down, on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with pizza sauce.
