Pepperoni Stromboli

There's a surprise inside this golden braided loaf - a flavorful pizza-like filling. I served the stromboli for our daughter's special "going to school" fifth grade party not long before she began kindergarten. The children loved it - and I have found so do adults! -Leslie Miller, Butler, Pennsylvania
