Pizza Bread

I saw this recipe on a blog the other day and variations of it are all over Pinterest. This pizza roll is so easy and so delish. I made this for our tailgate on Saturday and it went over really well. I sliced it up and served it with marinara sauce. It seems like it would be more complicated but that's the beauty of it. Check it out:

Pizza Bread
1 can store-bought Pillsbury French bread (or homemade pizza dough)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Sliced pepperoni
Olive Oil
Marinara sauce for dipping

Preheat the oven to 350. First, I rolled out the bread on a baking sheet.  Then, add your cheese, enough to cover the entire surface generously. Place your pepperonis all over the bread. 

Carefully roll up the flat pizza jelly-roll style, until you have a roll. Then spritz or drizzle the top of the roll with olive oil. I also sprinkled some garlic powder on top, just because we love it. Poke a few holes in the bread to allow air to escape between the layers and prevent air pockets.

I decided to cut my roll in half and make two small rolls because I knew I wouldn't have a good way of transporting the entire roll to the football game.  You can definitely leave it as one long roll.  Place the roll(s) on parchment paper or a Silpat.  

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Slice the rolls and serve immediately with warm marinara sauce.  This is what your bread should look like... yum!
