Cheesy Pepperoni Twist Rolls
Atascosa, TX

Cheesy Pepperoni Twist Rolls

Prep Time:
Cook Time:


1 pkgfrozen bread dough
1 pkgpepperoni
1 pkgmozzarella cheese
1parmesan cheese
1olive oil
1italian seasoning
1/4 ctomato sauce, optional
8 slicebacon
1 smallonion diced finely


 Loosely cover the frozen bread dough with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to thaw for a few hours at room temperature. When the dough is completely thawed it will be slightly puffed up.

Here's a tip: Spray the plastic wrap with cooking oil, or brush it with cooking oil and lay it, oiled side down on the bread dough. This allows the bread dough to rise and move easily under the plastic wrap without it sticking or holding back the dough. Cook and crumble bacon.

Roll dough out to an approximately 11 x 11 inch square. One frozen dough log makes one pepperoni roll.

Brush dough with olive oil or whatever cooking oil you prefer. Lay pepperoni on the dough covering entire surface. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Next, sprinkle it with shredded Parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle it with Italian seasoning. Add a sprinkling of garlic salt (optional).and add crumbled bacon and finely diced onion if so desired.

Roll up the dough starting at one edge of the square.
Place rolls on baking sheet, leaving space between them if you are making more than one roll. Brush some melted butter on top of the uncooked pepperoni roll(s).
 Bake at 375 degrees F for approximately 15 to 25 minutes. Oven temperatures and times may vary. When done, the top of the rolls should be golden brown and you should be able to make a tapping sound on the crust with your fingernail (the same as when baking bread).

Make sure you allow your pepperoni roll to cool completely before slicing and serving it.
