Fightin’ Texas Aggie Football is in full swing, so naturally we’re watching every single game on tv (the ones we don’t go to in person). I don’t know about you, but I need something yummy to snack on while I watch a football game, otherwise I get….bored. In fact, usually once the food is gone I pretty much lose interest in any sporting event. I know…I guess that makes me what Joel calls a “2 percent-er”. Oh well. A few weeks ago when we were enjoying one of the (few) particularly good Aggie games on tv, I whipped up this cheesy pepperoni bread and BOY did we gobble it down! It’s perfect football food! I used a store-bought can of bread dough, so it really saved a ton of time and came together lightening quick. We loved it dipped in marinara sauce- overall, a totally yummy snack that I’m sure I’ll be making over and over again every football season!

Cheesy Pepperoni Bread

1 can store-bought Pillsbury Italian or French bread (you could absolutely make your own dough- I was just short on time)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
sliced pepperoni
marinara sauce for dipping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll the bread dough so that it makes a large rectangle. Sprinkle generously with the mozzarella cheese, then top with desired amount of pepperoni. Carefully roll the dough jellyroll style into a loaf and place seam side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Bake 18-20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

  1. What a great idea! I know some guys that would love this, and I could probably sub in my favorite veggie toppings for the pepperoni to make a little vegetarian-friendly portion for me! :)

  5. My grandparents live in College Station and my grandpa is a professor at A&M so we hear all about how well or not so well their football team is doing. Sorry that it hasn’t been a better season so far! The bread looks delicious, though! Great pictures.

  6. Wow! That looks incredible. What a great “football watchin'” food. Just like you, when I can’t get to my games in Knoxville, we definitely watch them on TV. And by the way, welcome to the SEC!! :)

  7. These look yummy. If you’re talking about watching a good Aggies game, you must not be talking about the OSU game ;-)

  16. Amy, I’ve been wanting to look at this recipe since it popped up in my e-mail a couple of days ago… boy, am I glad I did! (And sorry I haven’t been around as often lately — I’ve got a writing project with “deadlines”…) This will be a great quick-fix snack (or a main meal with a salad) — thanks for your inspiration!

  17. I just made this a few days ago for dinner for my boyfriend and I! I used the Italian bread. Sooo yummy! My only problem was rolling it up. :/ The toppings didn’t swirl as well as I was hoping. They more conglomerated to the edges. Any tips? And, when I was rolling out my dough, it kept puffing back up! I couldn’t get a large, flat surface. It turned out so good despite my obstacles though!

    I’m so happy you enjoyed it! You’ve got to work with the dough pretty hard to get it to stretch enough. It could also depend on the brand of bread you used as well.

  18. You should’ve seen my husband trying to unroll the dough this morning, lol!! We were preping it for dinner tonight and ended up just using a rolling pin and folding the sides in like a long calzone. I’m sure it will still be great–anything with cheese usually is! Is there a trick to unrolling the dough? I bought a loaf of pillsbury french breach (my husband couldn’t find Italian)?

    Thanks.

    I used French too. If you look on the bottom of the dough, there is a seam; sort of pry it apart and it should roll out really easily.

  23. I have made this for years you can substitute anything you want for the pepperoni.. I have used prosciutto, turkey, Capicola, regular ham, salami etc it is a very good sandwich.. Kind of like a Stromboli.. I have found if the dough is more room temperature it stretches better..

  27. I made this tonight for my boys .. They called it “inside out pizza” too cute ..
    dough rolls out a bit easier at room temp .. And if you put it in the fridge a while before rolling it also helps ..
    I have picky boys so I did part pepperoni part cheese and part bacon .. everyone was pleased .. Thanks for the recipe!!!
