Pepperoni + Cheese + Bread = YUM!

That's a direct quote from KayteandRob :)

My grandma is famous for her pepperoni rolls. She has made them for as long as I can remember and I always gobble them up as soon as I can get my hands on them. I've been wanting to try to make them but was a little nervous about messing up a "classic". Tonight I finally made them and they turned out GREAT. Nick said they were the best he's had!

The "recipe" is not much of one, and it is super simple! I didn't measure anything, just went on sight, and the knowledge that Nick likes lots of pepperoni!

Pepperoni Rolls

1 loaf frozen bread dough
Sliced pepperoni
Shredded mozzarella cheese

I let the frozen bread dough thaw/raise throughout the day and then cut it in half and rolled out two rectangles. Layer the pepperoni on the dough, and then cover with mozzarella cheese. Roll up lengthwise and seal the ends and seam and place seam-side down in a baking pan (I used a jelly roll pan).

The second roll I did something a little different. I brushed butter on the dough, then sprinkled with Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese before layering the pepperoni and cheese and rolling. Then I brushed the top of the roll with butter and sprinkled with more parmesan cheese. After tasting the finished product I actually think this would be great with a marinara dipping sauce!

I baked them at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.
