Pepperoni Bread Twist

  • 1 pkg. (3.5 ounces) pepperoni slices, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 pkgs. refrigerated French bread dough
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups of your favorite pizza sauce, warmed (optional)
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Dice pepperoni and parsely.  Combine pepperoni, parsley, mozzarella cheese, flour and garlic.

    Place bread dough, seam sides up on a cutting board.  Slice each loaf lengthwise, end to end, cutting halfway through to center of loaf.

    Spread open flat and lightly sprinkle additional flour evenly over dough.  roll dough gently to a 4-inch width, creating a well down center of each loaf.

    Spoon half of the pepperoni mixture down center of each loaf.  Gather up edges over filling, pinching firmly to seal. 

    Place loaves, seam sides down, in an "X" pattern on baking sheet or stone.  Crisscross ends of dough to form a large figure "8" keeping leaving two 1-1/2-inch openings in center of twist.

    Spearate egg.  Beat egg white and oregano and mix; lightly brush over dough.  Using a serrated bread knife, cut a 3-inch slit in each of the top sections of the twist to reveal filling.

    Grate Parmesan cheese over loaf.  Bake 30-35 minutes or until deep golden brown.  Cool 10 minutes.  Slice and serve with warm pizza sauce, if desired.
