Loaded with pepperoni and all the cheesy goodness, this gluten free pepperoni bread is one of my favorite things!! If you've never had pepperoni bread, you'll never find it gluten free so you'll need to make this recipe pronto.
1largeegg mixed with 1 tbsp water and a pinch of salt(for egg wash)
sauteed onions, peppers, mushrooms, or any other thing you'd like to add to your pepperoni bread(optional)
Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Knead the dough on a well-floured surface. Divide into 3-4 ounce portions (depending on the size of bread you'd like). Working with one portion of dough at a time, roll out the dough into a small rectangle that's roughly ¼-inch thick. Arrange pepperoni slices down the middle, leaving a ½-inch border. Add a stick of mozzarella cheese. Fold each side over to meet in the middle and pinch to seal. Then fold the ends up and pinch those to seal.
Flip the rolls over so the seam is on the bottom and place them on the baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until puffed (they will only be slightly enlarged, but not doubled in size).
Brush pepperoni bread with egg wash. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool slightly before serving with pizza sauce for dipping.
*Pepperoni bread can be served hot or at room temperature. **Store leftovers in refrigerator wrapped in foil or plastic wrap. To reheat, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Keep wrapped in foil and bake for about 15 minutes. ***These can also be frozen. Wrap well and store in freezer for about 1-2 months. ***DISCLAIMER: The reason I created my own flour blends is because I could not obtain the results I wanted with flour blends that were available in stores, online, or from other gluten free bloggers. My recipes have been developed to be used with my own bread flour blend that I created after painstakingly testing for, in some cases, YEARS to develop what I believe to be a superior gluten free bread like no other. If you do not use my gluten free bread flour blend for this recipe, I cannot speak for the results you will obtain. While store bought blends may give you a satisfactory result, they may NOT give you the results intended in my recipe.
