Recipe Ingredients for Pepperoni Roll

1 cup water (warm: 110 degrees F)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp dry yeast
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
4 oz pepperoni (packed and coarsely chopped)
12 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
3 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated or shredded

Recipe Directions for Pepperoni Roll

  1. Instructions:

  2. Combine water, salt, sugar, and oil. Add flour and yeast at the same time and mix until thick. Add additional flour if needed, and knead dough for about 10 minutes.

  3. Place dough in greased bowl, turning dough over once to grease both sides. Cover and set in a warm place to rise. Allow dough to rise for about 45 minutes.**

  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12x16-inch rectangle. Sprinkle dough with oregano and basil. Top with the chopped pepperoni and then a layer of the mozzarella cheese.

  5. Carefully roll dough, jelly roll style, starting at one of the shorter (12-inch) ends (not at the wide, 16-inch sides). Pinch dough to seal into a "log".

  6. Using a piece of dental floss (approximately 18 inches in length), cut log into 8 slices. To do this, slip the strip of floss under the log and then bring both ends up, crossing over to the other side and pulling taut to cut.

  7. Carefully place the 8 rolls in a greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Cover lightly with a towel and set in a warm place for about 25-35 minutes, until almost doubled in size.

  8. Remove towel and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until lightly browned and dough is completely cooked. Cover loosely with foil during baking if dough starts to brown too quickly. Serve with warm sauce if desired.

  9. Additional Notes:

  10. This recipe was submitted by Katie M. of Ohio. She says that her family loves this dish, which makes a great lighter meal or snack. Katie also writes that this would still be a good meal if you substituted some more healthful ingredients. :) But, I got this recipe from http://www.tammysrecipes.com/pepperoni_roll

  11. The original recipe called for frozen bread dough, so I used an Italian dough when I made it, and included that in the recipe.

  12. *Or, use Italian seasoning (2 teaspoons total) in place of the basil and oregano

  13. **Optional: Skip step 2, and instead, just allow dough to rest for 5-10 minutes while you prepare the toppings.

  14. Preparation Time: 45 minutes + rising time

  15. Cooking Time: 30 minutes
