Make the dough in your bread machine, then fill, roll, rise and bake!
Makes 20 servings
1 cup water
1 1/2 tbl butter or olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 cups bread flour
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 lb. pepperoni, sliced thin
1/2 lb. mozzarella cheese, shredded
Use the dough cycle of the bread machine, and put in the ingredients in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
Remove dough; cover and let it rest 10 minutes. Then roll it out on a floured surface into a large rectangle.
Sprinkle with: 1 cup mozzarella cheese
Spread a generous layer of pepperoni over the bread. Make sure that cheese and pepperoni are not too close to the edges. Leave 1/2 inch margin all around.
Roll tightly like a jelly roll. Pinch the seam closed, and the ends as well. Place on a foil-covered baking sheet. (The foil is important in case the bread springs a leak.) Cut a few slashes in the top.
Cover and let the bread rise 30 to 45 minutes.
Bake 35 minutes at 350. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing.
