Rosie’s Pepperoni Rolls

One of the staples of family functions or parties have become these pepperoni rolls. If there are a lot of people, my aunt Rosie always brings these. And they are a hit! I’ve had so many people ask me for the recipe I figured it’d be easier to just make a post about it! They are so quick to make- it gives you the rest of your day to finish the 900+ other things you’ve been meaning to get done.

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf Rhodes frozen bread doughfullsizeoutput_1dd0
  • 1/2 lb provolone cheese
  • 1/4 lb pepperoni (or salami)
  • 2 tbls butter
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Thaw dough according to package.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 400°.
  3. Melt butter with crushed garlic, set aside.
  4. Roll out dough onto floured surface. Be sure to get all air bubbles out!
  5. Layer provolone and pepperoni. Leave about 2 inches on one end plain. (Too stuffed and it will make a HUGE mess when you roll it!)
  6. Roll up and fold in ends as you go. Transfer onto flat, greased baking sheet.
  7. Cut 5 or 6 slits on top. Brush with garlic butter and sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top.
  8. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Serve warm (or cold) with marinara.

Tips:

*I thaw my dough overnight so I can make this in the morning. Then I have dinner prepped and done before Joey even finishes breakfast!

*I make these in a batch of 3 or 4 at a time. Leftovers are great for snacks and road trips!
