Pepperoni Pull Apart Pizza

Skill: Beginning Prep Time: 30 Bake Time: 20 Servings:


18 Rhodes frozen rolls
36 slices of pepperoni
pizza sauce, (about 3/4 cup)
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella


On two large cookie sheets sprayed with cooking spray, thaw rolls as directed on package, usually about three hours. Spray two 9x5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray. When the dough has thawed, use your fingers to push down the center of each roll. Drop 1/2 Tablespoon of pizza sauce into the middle of each roll in indentation that you just made. Top with about 1/2 Tablespoon of shredded mozzarella. Place two slices of pepperoni inside the dent and fold it over the top of cheese so that it is covers it like a tent. Fold the rolls and pinch the dough up and around the toppings like a taco. Place 9 rolls in each loaf pan alternating right, left, right, left, and so on. Spread 3 Tablespoons of pizza sauce over the rolls in each pan. Sprinkle each pan with about 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Cover the pans with a clean dish cloth and let raise for 20 minutes or until doubled.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes. The tops will be golden and when the tops are pressed gently, they will spring back. Run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen pull apart pizza and turn out onto a serving platter. Serve warm as is or with ranch, Mariana, or extra pizza sauce for dipping.

Notes: This recipe easily accommodates your crowd and can be halved or doubled depending on the size of crew your are feeding. I jar of pizza sauce makes about 4 loaves of this pull apart pizza. Sometimes, if I add a little extra pepperoni by placing a slice in between the rolls as I layer them in the pans.
