Pepperoni Bread with Dipping Sauce
Ingredients for Pepperoni Bread:
Bread dough either homemade or store bought
Johnny Pizza from Milford Spice Company
1 package of Pepperoni
6 oz. Mozzarella Cheese and/or 6 oz. Asiago Cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and use a pizza stone or the back of a flat sheet pan. Take the bread dough (use a little flour to help) and make into a rectangle about 9 x 12 inches. Add the pepperoni covering the dough evenly. Leave a 1/2 inch of dough all around to help seal bread. Spread cheese evenly all over the bread. Sprinkle the Johnny Pizza seasoning over the cheese.
Roll like a jelly roll the bread and seal the bottom end. Cover with a dry sack towel. Let it rise on a pizza peel with cornmeal for 60 minutes or doubled in bulk. Score the top of the bread with a sharp knife. Bake for 30 minutes or until done. Rest 15 minutes. Eat with Dipping Sauce.
