Who likes pepperoni rolls? This recipe uses the 1 hour breadstick recipe. And just like the breadsticks, they are awesome. In fact, they might be more awesome, because they has cheese! And pepperoni. But mostly cheese. 🙂

You will need:
3/4 cup warm water

1/2 TBSP yeast

1 TBSP sugar
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
2-3 TBSP melted butter
1 cup mozzarella
desired amount of pepperoni
garlic powder, basil and oregano
grated parmesan

First, add the yeast and sugar to the warm water and allow it to sit about 5 minutes. It should bubble up some, if the yeast is good.


Add the yeast mixture to the mixing bowl and then add the flour and salt, 1/2 cup at a time. Mix on medium-high about 5 minutes. Allow dough to sit about 5 minutes. Use about a TBSP of the melted butter on a 9×12 baking sheet. Dump the dough onto the buttered baking sheet and allow to rest another 2 minutes. It would probably be ok if the pan’s dimensions are slightly more or less–this is just the size pan I used.

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Spread the dough out, like you would pizza dough.

Spread the rest of the melted butter all over the
dough. Use a basting brush for best results. Sprinkle desired amount of garlic
powder, basil and oregano on the dough. Then add the cheese, followed by the pepperoni.

Bake at 170 degrees about 7-10 minutes, then increase the temperature to 350 degrees and bake another 10-12 minutes, until the rolls and cheese are slightly browned.

And that’s it! Serve with your favorite Italian dish, or just have it for a snack with ranch or marinara on the side. I served it with minestrone soup.

  1. I just love cheese and pepperoni! And these look totally delicious. I’m stopping by from Lou Lou Girls. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  2. I could just eat the pepperoni rolls as a meal. I love it that they are made on homemade bread. For years I wasn’t a big fan of pepperoni and even now I son’t care for it that much on pizza. With this recipe, lots of cheese and that wondrous bread, I know the way I do like it. A little dip, both sound equally good and I’ll be all set.
