This simplified bread dish is made and packed with real pepproni, herbs, and cheese, and delivers a rich, meaty flavor. Italian seasoning sometimes and chili oil sometimes work for this, too.

Pepperoni Bread


  • 1 loaf frozen white bread dough
  • ½ tsp. vegetable shortening
  • ¾ tsp. fresh chopped parsley or parsley flakes
