This pepperoni cheesy bread is your new favorite appetizer. You just don’t know it yet.

I’ve made this so many times and it’s always a hit with everyone.

There’s nothing more convenient or easy to make then this..

I love taking a shortcut using the pre-made dough.

And I bet you already have the rest of the ingredients in your house right now

Once you try this recipe it will not be the last time you make it. That’s a guarantee!

Do I have to use premade dough?

No you absolutely don’t have to use premade dough.

I just love this Pillsbury option for two reasons.

1. It’s convenient. Absolutely zero effort for me to open this can.

2. It’s the perfect thickness. I love how thin it is.

Feel free to make your own dough if you’d like!

Can I use other toppings?

Sure you can! Use whatever you want

I actually make this plain all the time and choose no toppings.

Add some fresh veggies, other meat or anything you can thing of.
