Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper or baking mat.
  • 2
    Unroll 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dough sheet on cookie sheet. Using hands, spread dough evenly. Sprinkle 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz) over dough, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges.
  • 3
    Place 40 slices pepperoni in rows over cheese. Fold short end of dough just over edge of pepperoni. Starting at the long end, roll dough, pinching to seal. Place seam side down on cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Mix 1 egg with 1 tablespoon water. Brush egg mixture over dough (you will have egg leftover).
  • 5
    Mix 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese and 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Sprinkle evenly over dough.
  • 6
    Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into 2-inch pieces; serve with pizza sauce or marinara sauce for dipping.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Feeding some meatless eaters? Adapting this pizza bread recipe is easy! Use green peppers, mushrooms or ripe olives to make a vegetarian version of pizza bread.
  • tip 2
    For extra flavor, add 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder to the Parmesan cheese mixture.
  • tip 3
    Make it fancy! Instead of pepperoni, use a mix of your favorite Italian deli meats, such as salami, prosciutto, soppressata or capocolla.
